I've not seen it here yet, apologies if I'm repeating old news...

The Argies are upset that the RAF have based 4 Typhoons on the Falklands. I thought that the Falklands were British and, aside from the odd invasion, nothing to do with Argentina. The answer should surely be "tough shit".

Sorry, it's from The Sun

Would they be happier if we withdrew our forces and just left a small RM NP?

Fcuk 'em.

Tornado is out, Typhoon is in. And the Argies need to understand that we will update the defences to OUR territory as we see fit.

I would imagine a single Typhoon could dick the entire Argie AF, what's left of it.
 
#6
You'd think they would have taken the hint back in 82 wouldn't you?
 
#7
Did we whinge when they replaced ARA General Belgrano?
 
#9
You'd have to think they'd take a serious humping if they tried again, how many AMRAAMs does a Typhoon carry? Aren't the argies still in Mirages and Skyhawks?

Whats that the article says, an argentinian leader using 'Las malvinas' to distract from domestic problems? Where have we heard that one before? Maybe we could promise the lads first one into buenos aires gets to scuttle that Kirchner if it happens again.

fcuk knows what i did with that double post there LOL. Yeah, looking at that list parapauk, they have 57 slightly upgraded 3rd generation attack/fighter jets, and 36 Pucaras, nothing the Crabs couldn't handle it appears! Wouldn't those Pucaras just be flying deathtraps in this day & age?

The Pucaras couldn't get to the Falkands and back - now as with last time you'd need to capture an airstrip on the island to use them.

According to Wiki they have 7x SU-29, which is no slouch. Easily a match for Tornado, AIUI.

I just googled a SU-29 and it comes back as a two seat aerobatics plane? Am I missing something?
No you are right, he's thinking of Su-27/30/33/35/37's
Thanks parapauk, was thinking either Mig 29 or SU-27 but hadn't found reference to ither in Argentina yet
