According to the Indonesian Navy, a submarine has disappeared off the coast of Bali since Wednesday, with 53 people on board.

Some of the submarines were found near the missing location, along with debris such as worship mats, according to the Naval Commander.

The scan detected a submarine at a depth of 850m (2,800ft). This is far beyond the viable limit.

It carried enough oxygen for only 3 days.

The Indonesian Navy claims that the submarine is in good condition, but the oil slick that appears to have submerged the ship raises concerns that the fuel tank may be damaged.

“In the absence of external pressure and cracks in the torpedo launcher, we found some parts or parts that would have been attached to the submarine,” said the Navy Chief of Staff. Staff Yudo Margono.

Among the items recovered was a bottle of grease to lubricate the periscope. They were found in a radius of 10 miles (16 km) that no other ship had passed.

There was an international effort to find a Navy boat.
