JAKARTA, KOMPAS.com - The missing Indonesian KRI Nanggala 402 submarine has been found off the coast of Bali at a depth of more than 800 meters, divided into three parts, and all 53 crew members have fallen.

The Indonesian Navy (TNI-AL) released video footage of a vessel’s wreckage was located on the ocean floor. The image was captured by a sonar scan belongs to the Singaporean Navy that detected the submarine at 850 meters (2,790 feet), far beyond its diving range.

Based on the finding, the Indonesian military authorities then confirmed that the vessel has sunk and all of its crew members had died.

“The 53 crew members on board the KRI Nanggala 402 submarine have fallen,” said Indonesia Military (TNI) commander Air Chief Marshal Hadi Tjahjanto with a lump in his throat during a press conference on Sunday, April 25.

The KRI Nanggala-402 is the second Indonesian submarine ordered on April 2, 1977, from the shipbuilding company Howaldtswerke-Deutsche Werft in Germany. The vessel was brought by 38 crew members from Germany to Indonesia in early August 1981. The vessel was officially announced during the 36th anniversary of the Indonesian National Armed Forces Day (TNI Day) on October 5, 1981.

The 44-year-old vessel went missing north of the resort island of Bali when it was rehearsing for a missile-firing exercise scheduled for Thursday last week.
