Argentine Air Force in The Falklands Conflict

Warbirds Illustrated 045 relata la actuación de la Fuerza Aérea Argentina en Malvinas desde el punto de vista inglés.

In terms of tactics, Argentine aviators were lacking somewhat compared to the standards practised by their British counterparts, and some of their losses could doubtless havc been avoided had there been some kind of mutual support. The 1 May air battle, in which two Mirage IIIEA interceptors were lost to a pair of Sea Harriers, clearly showed their inability to wrest air superiority from the very effective V/STOL interceptors, a problem aggravated by the aircraft's lack of range. In a sense, however, what was lacking in tactics was in large measure made good by courage and determination. Transport and helicopter pilots also deserve mention, especially the C-130 Hercules crews, who made man daring resupply flights to Port Stanley as well as carrying out some highly dangerous surveillance sorties. Most of the aircrews from the three services got notice of the landings during the early hours of 2 April. They were ill-prepared for the kind of conflict that ensued, having directed their training towards possible hostilities with Chile arising out of the longstanding dispute over the sovereignty of the Beagle Channel.
