From a British Internet web site defense journal a less than sanguine appraisal of the Argentinean military.
"sanguine - - adjective 1. cheerfully optimistic, hopeful, or confident"
"Argentine military capability almost all gone"
"After a significant period of decline, the Argentine armed forces have ceased to be a capable military force. In August 2015, the Argentine air force retired its Mirage fighters, with only a handful of them even flyable."
"Even the submarine crews, despite benefiting from a recent upgrade, need at least 190 days of immersion practice and in 2014 only spent 19 hours submerged. A similar situation is faced by the four destroyers: Almirante Brown, Heroina, La Argentina and Sarandí, they don’t have any weaponry."
"The Argentine Army has deployed on operations without some of even the most basic equipment and rarely has the resources for training."
"The Argentine Air Force largely consists of a collection of obsolete aircraft mostly dating back to the 1970’s, which are frequently grounded due to poor serviceability. They’re now even getting rid of their only semi-capable fighter aircraft."
This appraisal obviously with regard to any danger as posed to the Falkland Islands. THE ARGENTINEAN NO LONGER HAVING AN OFFENSIVE CAPACITY POSING A THREAT TO BRITISH DOMINION OF THE DISPUTED ISLANDS.
Even the recent purchase of Su-24 fighter-bomber warplanes from Russian of dubious usefulness. Those Fencer aircraft having a bad habit of crashing. NOT BRAND NEW EITHER.
