How Britain’s Royal Navy might help find a missing Argentine submarine

An Argentine submarine, the ARA San Juan, is missing in the South Atlantic Ocean.

The crew of 44 has been out of contact with the Argentine Navy for 48 hours.

While it may simply be a communications problem that does not pose a threat to the boat, if there is a risk to life here, the British Navy is well-placed to help out. The map below shows the San Juan’s likely northward route to its home port at Mar del Plata and the proximity of that route to the British Falkland Islands.

That proximity is relevant in that, since its 1982 war with Argentina over ownership of the Falkland Islands, Britain has retained a considerable military presence to defend the islands. This involves a constant deployment of Royal Navy surface vessels and the semi-regular deployment of British submarines.

Considering that the U.K. government has offered assistance to Argentina’s search efforts, Royal Navy submarines would be most useful.

  1. I hope the Brits find and save the crew of the submarine just to prove to those damn Argentinians that we aren't some imperialistic monsters who care only for our own.

  3. I hope to God they find them alive. can't think of much worse than being helpless in a "tin can" under water.

    Little surprised that Argentina even has a submarine mind you.

  4. man going to fight a Vietnam War need a wife and children to go fight a wall I ain't going to get the pussy ain't that right Donald Trump cuz you sure know where to find them at you got the addresses in your phone

  5. no you left your girl at the house why you don't know you in the Navy you gone for a couple of years well that's your so-called woman she getting it getting that motor did he's going to getting a brand new transmission

  6. I’m sure the hi tech Falklands listening station and Royal Navy are doing everything they can do quietly to help in the search and recovery process.

  7. for those in peril on the sea. no matter what country you are from maritime code states you should help. the war was long ago between our countries . I do hope the crew all come home safe.

  8. Im from Argentina. Many people were wondering why do we have a need for submarines in 2017. Many skeptical people, very influenced by the media, believe we want to take the falkands. But actually, we use subs, destroyers, gunboats and naval patrol vessels to take out pirate ships *mostly chinese*, which hunt whales and do illegal fishing on our waters. We also have huge problems with drug dealers on our borders, coming from the other south american countries. Most of our forces are focused on that area. We also have many divisions in peace missions for the ONU.

    Just to clarify, we have no intention to take the islands. And even if we could, we would never incitate conflict. Democracies never get into conflict with each other, thats the whole point of it. To solve problems with diplomacy. I've met many americans, europeans and british in my life, and they all became very good friends. If one day the british are in trouble, we will always help you in anyway we can.

  9. Nosotros como nación turca te queremos mucho nuestra tristeza es nuestra tristeza, soy un viejo oficial naval turco, jubilé a los marineros ertuğrul en este tipo de accidente marítimo si no obtienes agua submarina cuando no hay un incendio o una explosión que el personal tiene más esperanzas de eliminar si un daño mecánico Si no puede moverse debido a una falla en el equipo de pantalla
    si lo son, siempre sobrevivirán porque limpiarán y sobrevivirán bajo el mar con tubos

    Submarino Perdido Arjantin:

    Ayer aprendí con pesar que falta un submarino de las Fuerzas Navales Arjasinin y faltan 35 tripulantes
    Bende nuevas noticias como un mariscal retirado de las fuerzas navales turcas coordenadas del submarino muy sometido
    si es obvio que la búsqueda debe hacerse en las coordenadas y lo más importante es una pieza de escombros de un barco perteneciente al submarino en esa región
    está en el agua Las fuerzas de búsqueda deben tener mucho cuidado cuando se pierde el más mínimo detalle
    es difícil de encontrar, a pesar de que usted es el soldado en el mar de la vida como usted está familiarizado, por supuesto, usted sabe que una vieja
    como oficial naval no he pasado sin contar la tristeza del MÁS PROFUNDO

    PENSIONES TURCAS DE FUERZA MARINA.
