ASW and 1982 South Atlantic War

And my new book (still a shock)!

A Carrier at Risk: Argentinean Aircraft Carrier and Anti-Submarine Operations Against Royal Navy's Attack Submarines During the Falklands/Malvinas War, 1982 (Latin [email protected])

Should be interesting. Shame about the cover picture.

I am always intrigued by the conflict and always great to hear things from all perspectives. I seem to recall lack of wind was cited as preventing the 25 de Mayo from launching what could have been the only carrier v. carrier action since WWII.

A quick internet search did not show ordering info? Subject wise I'm definitely interested, if price and ordering source seem right.

Yes, that is right. Lack of wind over deck prevented the launching of six A4Q with full bomb load (Snakeyes) at dawn. May 1st, 1982 night was called "Banzai Night" by the Carrier Air Wing crews. No one expected to survive.

Any reason for Marcantilan's sudden banning?

Blatant breach of the rules I guess - advertising.

While he has been a mine of interesting information from the Argentinean perspective and has shared his research from British archive material he would inevitably have profitted from PPRuNe.I

Shame really as I think we gained much value from the insight he gave us and we will miss his contribution.

I guess it did abrade the rules but does seem harsh on someone who has contributed so much and sought the contributions of so many in such an inclusive and thoughtful way. Hopefully his time served will be weighed against his high standing and he will return to these boards in the near future.

Here here. Possibly a misunderstanding on his part

His original post notifying us of his new book has been left up - it seems only to have been his link to Amaxxn that got him into trouble - Which in his defence he only posted as a response to a specific request from another poster.

As others have said - Let's hope it's a short lived ban and that he's back soon.

My dad's three cousins ( twins PO from FAA served on Invincible / Hemes and one CPO on Type 42) during the conflict. However I did read into what the Argentines fielded and it makes interesting reading from this book I have.












Interesting enough they even considered their handful of legacy F-86 Sabres to defend Port Stanley but decided against.



cheers

He got 5 days off - not for the Amazon ad itself- no action taken.

Got the boot when he replaced the ad in the OP and then repeated it to hammer it home.

Seems like a fair enough response then Rob!

And if I may add nice to see Rob standing up and explaining - doesn’t happen often.

Added to my ‘stocking fillers please’ list.

F86’s against Sea Harriers would have been an interesting contest!

Not sure the context of that statement but F86 against Vulcan was no contest especially when the Vulcan went into the vertical.

F-86F CAP - indeed any CAP - would have given the Vulcan crews something to think about - particularly if the fighters were getting Bogey Dope and the Vulcan wasn’t.
F-86F vs Sea Harrier would have been interesting - but at some point AIM-9L may have made it less so. My understanding is the F-86 was guns only...other than some rocket only derivatives.
I remember from 607 that a SHAR was airborne at the time of at least one B.B. raid but not sure this constituted a sweep as such.
