I just don't think any rockets fired impacted on vehicles. I could understand those firing them having that impression, but it doesn't match Argentine accounts. They said rockets were fired at them, but all missed, while there are plenty of photos of an Amtrack that had been peppered with GPMG rounds. I don't know if any of the RMs had ever fired a live round rather than an inert training round before, so I guess that could add to the confusion in the darkness and conditions and adrenaline of the moment - but wouldn't be the first time combatants have had a different impression of an action.Which is basically my point. It may have been hit but cause very little damage which with a bit of paint and some Quilmes it would be back on the road again.
We must also consider that on both sides this would have been the first real tank action any had encountered. I feel it is not inconsistent that one one side seeing a vehicle hit, big bang, smoke and crew doing a runner it would seem to have been knocked out. On the other side you are driving along, very big bang, vehicle moves to the side, lots of smoke, screaming, debus/run for it.
When all settles down the damage is only slight and not a burning wreck.
So either the many Argentine accounts are false, the Governor just happened to be looking in the wrong direction, as did the many journalists on the island at the time of the landings (including Simon Winchester of the Times who put his experience in a book published in 83). Winchester, post invasion, stayed on the islands for one more day, visited Moody Brook and described the mess made of it by the Argentines (drove down there seemingly unaccompanied) and left via the airport. No mention of knocked out Amtrack as described by RDP's key witness, which is again strange given a journalist's inquisitive eyes, don't you think. There were four non-Argentine journos on the Island, none of them mentioned seeing the Amtrack (Simon from the times, Ken Clarke from the Telegraph, Bill Langley from the Mail and Simon Greaves from the Sun).
So, it's like Invincible, a very small number of eye witnesses saying one thing against many other voices describing something different, including several neutral witnesses who didn't see a knocked out Amtrack.
