A Russian fighter (SU-33) slid off the deck of an aircraft carrier (Admiral Kuznetsov) during landing. The brake cable broke and the plane fell
overboard. The pilot ejected but the plane is now at the bottom the sea. This happened in the Norwegian Sea yesterday.
Two things come to mind.

it must be quite shallow if they are concerned about other powers Salvaging the aircraft.
