Hi Dive Instructor,Harmattan crew: I first came to know about this wreck in 1982. In 1983 I dived a shipwreck at out anchorage of Karachi Harbour. It had a huge hole aft on its starboard side next to its engine room.
Another detail I remember from first dives on this wreck were new propellers placed near its mast. Also all of its holds were open and its hold covers were folded open.
If this is Harmattan kindly confirm. I may have a few pictures.
I don't think the wreck you are diving on is Harmattan as she was not sunk but scrapped........however there were other ships involved with the incident that probably were sunk........Harmattan was stuck by a missile but not sunk, see as follows........ On 8 December 1971 Harmattan's career ended whilst anchored four miles offshore Karachi, hit in the funnel by an Indian Styx missile, fired from an Osa class patrol boat (glad I was not aboard!) she was declared a complete total loss, then sold to Pakistani breakers. Scrapped 5.72
There were incidents reported in the local paper at the time of the incident, I have read them somewhere on the net, if you have the time or inclination I'm sure you'll find them and discover exactly which ship/ships that were sunk........ apparently more than one ship was hit
with missiles of which 6 or so were fired.
