MiG-17PF 'Fuerza Aérea Argentina' for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2
This is a very simple mod of the stock MiG-17PF to give a fictional export version for the Fuerza Aérea Argentina with markings for Grupo 6 De Caza in silver and camo versions.
The Argentinian elections of 1958 saw Arturo Frondizi become President and with some support from Peron's followers he introduced various policies to encourage investment and make the country self-sufficient in energy and industry. One major issue was Argentina's chronic trade deficit and in early 1960 Frondizi controversially cancelled the order for 28 refurbished F-86F Sabres on cost grounds and announced the procurement of 40 MiG-17PF interceptors from the Soviet Union for an undisclosed sum "to be funded solely by beef exports". Entering service with Grupo 6 De Caza in 1961 the MiG-17PF's were initially delivered in a natural metal finish but soon adopted a camouflage scheme and served in frontline service until 1977 and thus played no part in the 1982 Falklands/Malvinas conflict but did remain on 'reserve status' until 1983.
