  1. Favorite Falkand's War Aircraft

    Here' one: "I hope the developer can show he is working closely with authentic British sources of information and is not involved with the propaganda that is still prevelant in the less-developed World."

    By the way, the only civilian casualties during the conflict were caused by British shelling. In the other hand, neither side really had controvertial war crimes( Exept maybe for the sinking of the Belgrano which was 30 miles out of the war zone, some claims that prisoners were executed at Goose Green and Mount. Longdon and in the Argentine's side, stealing sheep from herders to eat, none of these are really controvertial though, like Katyn or the war crimes being made by the US troops in Iraq, which claim to be freeing the Iraqis from the "insurgents", which are actually Iraq's own people whom are trying to get rid of the invaders who bombed their capital and killed 250,000 of them a decade ago.) It was a pretty clean war compared to what we've been witnessing in the last two decades.
  3. what am I doing now?

    The Harriers featured in this conflict were the Gr.3 Harrier and the Sea Harrier FRS. 1. By the way, the Harrier AV-8B didn't enter service until 1985 and was developed by McDonnell Douglas Aircraft in the United States.
  4. MOVIES about this conflict

    Seems like a pretty nice film, and those special effects look pretty realistic for a third world country like mine. By the way, wich ground battle does it feature?
  5. Favorite Falkand's War Aircraft

    I'm only talking about the losses in Port Stanley and Capt. Cuerva's Mirage III was not shot down by a sidewinder.
  6. Favorite Falkand's War Aircraft

    :) My bad, that was MBot.
  7. Favorite Falkand's War Aircraft

    What do you mean with the disastrous event if only one Mirage III was shot down in air to air combat during May 1(Out of the Mirage IIIs that is of course)?( If your adding Cuerva's Mirage III, you should know that he was accidently shot down by the Argentine Artillery fire. By the way only a Dagger and a Mirage III were destroyed in combat that day.

    Hi everyone, it's been a while since I've done anything in this forum. I know it might as well be kind of late to say this , but I just wanted to get some facts straight. First of all Bob, the British actually brought 28 Sea Harriers not 20(However, they did start the war with 20)and 14 Harriers and about the air to air kills three of those air to air kills haven't been confirmed so I strongly believe that if you count the British unconfirmed air to air kills you might as well count the Argentine ones. :)

    For how long.
  10. Favorite Falkand's War Aircraft

    The A-4B were helpful to Argentina during the Falklands War, they sunk three British ships and damaged and sveral others.
  11. Favorite Falkand's War Aircraft

    Don't blame me, Mothman said it was an Aermacchi.
  12. Favorite Falkand's War Aircraft

    :) A Pucara can carry up to 12 Mk82.(3 below each wing and 6 below it's cockpit) :ph34r: :ph34r: :ph34r:
  13. Favorite Falkand's War Aircraft

    Well the Pucaras might not be fast, but they have a pretty good armour. :D Besides only four of them were destroyed in combat(2 by SAMs, 1 by ground fire and another one was shot down by a Sea Harrier). :ph34r: :ph34r: :ph34r:
  14. Favorite Falkand's War Aircraft

    Hey Baco-ECv56, if you want to get down and dirty you might as well go for the Pucara. They can fly way lower than the Super Etendard and Dagger. Besides they can carry up to 7 rocket pods and have a lot of fire power since they have four 7.12mm cannons with 270 rpg and two 20mm cannons with 900 rpg. :ph34r: :ph34r: :ph34r:
  15. Sidewinders and Pucaras

    Does anybody know if the British Sidewinders ability to follow heat works with Pucaras? As far as I know the only Pucara to be shot down in air to air combat was shot down by cannon fire(2 by surface to air missiles, 1 due to ground fire, another one was shot down by a Sea Harrier, 11 were captured and 9 were destroyed due to accidents and bombs). I'm not sure weather they work or not cz the Pucaras don't seem to produce heat since they're propellers. :ph34r: :ph34r: :ph34r:
