    Why don't they shut the f**k up and only relay news when it is known for certain that they have found the “ San Juan ”? More misinformation !

    I wonder how many of these findings are the end results of the academically well catalogued Argie gunboat diplomacy with Taiwanese and other fishing vessels during the mid 80's to mid/late 90's? Guess they didnt retain a register despite Argie protestations that the sea beyond the 200nm is Argentine controlled and administered!

    Investigation of bribes and corruption associated with submarine battery repairs

    DW doesn't seem to have a comparable English language version of the story but RT news covers the waterfront with searchable story “Explosion & fire on Argentina’s San Juan sub blamed on low-quality German repair – reports ”

    “...Ferrostaal and EnerSys-Hawker are the two companies suspected of delivering dysfunctional replacement batteries for the ‘San Juan’ through a vague corruption scheme, according to a report by German broadcasters Bayerischer Rundfunk and ARD....”

    This despite the argie navy claim that they, the argies, did such a wonderful job rebuilding their own batteries
