Did China sink an Indonesia Sub?

Well, I've heard some rumors, but this one seems to be right up there in QAnon class.

The claim is that Indonesian sub was sank by China to draw regional surveillance craft away from regular duties.

Apparently China wants to move some of it's own subs into close proximity to eavesdrop on us or some neighbours, and have done so by drawing craft capable of detecting them away as part of the search. Surely not!

That sub is 44 years old LP, and probably wouldn't need much help manage a tragic accident.  :(

No.  I expect the worst.
I heard on the radio this morning they expected the O2 to run out this morning, unless it surfaced somewhere the outlook is grim.

The Chinese sank it in the same way the Russians flogged Harold Holt.

I thought it was the Chinese who took him. Not sure if China even had submarines in 1967.

Gotta love Aussie irony/humour. Harold Holt drowns / vanishes at sea... and there's a swimming pool named after him in Malvern.  ;D

Russia gave the Chinese a couple of subs in the 50's, I think the Nth Koreans still run a few old Rusky subs too..

Wow ....Cap, thats a lot of old Soviet junk still trawling the waters. I guess the DPRK airforce are still flying old MIG's too?

@ElwoodBlues1 ... they've got a decent amount of their own subs.

Air Force?  Chinese stuff but MIGS aplenty ... 90 odd from memory but 80s vintage.  Still, nothing to sneeze at ... plus 80 Soviet medium range bombers ... and again, now getting long in the tooth.
