Authorities haven’t set any date for when the search may be formally deserted.

The navy’s remaining contact with the German-built ARA San Juan, a 34-year-old diesel-electric sub, got here on November 15, when it was crusing within the South Atlantic 450 kilometers (280 miles) from the coast.

In its remaining communication, the submarine reported it had overcome a mechanical breakdown that resulted from a brief circuit as a result of water that seeped by way of the vessel’s snorkel.

Three hours later, a noise much like an explosion was recorded 48 kilometers from the place the crew had given its final report.

The place was in keeping with the deliberate path the submarine would have taken to succeed in its base in Mar del Plata, in accordance with the navy.
