The hull of the ship, divided into 2 parts, lies at a depth of 46 meters. Well preserved bow part, which is exactly on the keel, and the aft part, lying with a roll about 15 degrees to starboard. The felling was partially preserved. The engine room and hold, up to the stern, are destroyed due to the entry of three torpedoes.
