RAF Mount Pleasant Typhoons cut

2 Typhoons is enough to take out Mirages, especially with the new Missile tracking capability of the typhoon pilots helmet.

Unless they launch a full invasion, the two typhoons would be enough to deter any reasonably small sized air attack.

Unless of course they happened to be U/S for servicing, or it's after 1500 hrs , or it's a weekend/Bank Holiday.

Well I would imagine if there's only two typhoons there, they would be their own rapid reaction force and would be ready at all times. After tea obviously

Oh well, looks like more of the RAF's finest will be spending regular tours developing the Falklands limited gene pool.

....but the new fighter deal may be aimed at levelling the playing field in the South Pacific.
I think the Argentines are perfectly entitled to take back the South Pacific Falkland islands :)

Of course. Anyone who suggests that the UK ought to have a slightly more substantial Navy, Army or Air Force is clearly a blithering idiot who should 'wake up and smell the coffee' and then 'get with the programme'. Two aircraft ready to fly are clearly more than enough to counter the entire armed forces of a nation of forty million people.

So, to misquote a crab of some note, "Our young men will have to shoot down their young men at a rate of 5 to 1"

Which shouldn't be to much of a stretch considering the batting average of the last dust up.
