The last point of contact was well North of the Falkland Islands (aka Las Malvinas). and probably well outside any disputed sea area.

The course of the boat, which has been published at the time, showed that it did edge on the Falkland economic zone. It would be logical for them to do so and for any British vessel or aircraft to have a look - If it was travelling on the surface.

Apparently MOD deny there are any anti submarine helos based in the Falklands.
Talk about false news; I saw a news item on here that told of UK purchase of Israeli Iron Dome missile defense system for deployment in the Falklands. I do wish that I had made a note of the source as I have not seen any further mention of it. I thought it to be a spoof and, I guess it was. Unless the price of wool has hit record highs.

There is a lot of talk now that the ARA San Juan possibly collided with the tanker Hai Gong You 309? So far this is NOT confirmed. The hull of the oil products tanker has not been inspected yet.

For anybody interested take a look at this twitter timeline. This guy is very involved in providing updates, and has access to a marinetraffic AIS account.
