原文:

With the authentic evidence we found believed to be from the submarine, we have now moved from the 'sub miss' phase to 'sub sunk,' Adm. Margono said at the press conference, in which the found items were displayed.

The cause of the disappearance was still uncertain. The navy had previously said an electrical failure could have left the submarine unable to execute emergency procedures to resurface.

Margono said that in the past two days, searchers found parts of a torpedo straightener, a grease bottle believed to be used to oil the periscope, debris from prayer rugs and a broken piece from a coolant pipe that was refitted on the submarine in South Korea in 2012.

Margono said rescue teams from Indonesia and other countries will evaluate the findings, adding that no bodies have been found so far.

An American reconnaissance plane, a P-8 Poseidon, landed early Saturday and had been set to join the search, along with 20 Indonesian ships, a sonar-equipped Australian warship and four Indonesian aircraft.

中譯:

馬戈諾上將於記者會(現場陳列尋獲物件)表示,因為找到了應該是來自該潛艦的確切物證,目前已由「艦艇失蹤」進入到「艦艇沉沒」階段。

艦艇失蹤的原因尚不明確。印尼海軍先前表示,電力故障可能會讓該艦無法執行浮出水面的緊急程序。

馬戈諾指出,過去2天,搜索機艦尋獲魚雷矯直器的零件、用於潛望鏡潤滑的油瓶、穆斯林禮拜毯碎片,以及2012年於南韓改裝在該潛艦的冷卻管破片等物件。

馬戈諾表示,印尼及其他國家的救難隊,會對尋獲物件進行評估,他並提到,目前尚未尋獲任何遺體。

美國1架P-8「海神」偵察機於週六清晨降落,該機先前就已預劃,連同20艘印尼船艦、1艘配備聲納的澳洲軍艦,及4架印尼飛機,一起加入搜索行列。(第5篇/共14篇)
