India sends DSRV to track Indonesian submarine

India has dispatched a deep submergence rescue vessel to help in the ongoing search and rescue operation for the Indonesian diesel-powered submarine that went missing with 53 sailors on board around the Bali Strait on Wednesday.

The Indian Navy’s DSRV, basically a mini-submarine that dives to “mate” with a “disabled” submarine to extricate sailors trapped deep underwater, was sent on board its “mother ship” Sabarmati from Vizag on Thursday morning.
