Operation Volunteer-Falklands
« on: May 02, 2017, 01:39:36 AM »
 As the hunt for Cate MacGregor steps up, it is realized that with the impending offensive invasion that things could go south for her very quickly. The Pentagon knows this and so does Langley (CIA), it is imperative that Cate is either rescued quickly, or sacrificed (killed by a tactical strike on wherever they are holding her)

 To add boots on the ground to step up the search, Colonel Samantha Carter has been given clearance to ask for volunteers from those personnel stationed on, or rotating through RAF Mt Pleasant in the Falklands. This would be an ideal mission for SEAL operatives and anyone connected to her in any way (CIA's and others). Who we gonna call?

I'll wait to see what's the plan for SEALs before I decide on if my SEAL will be there or not.

 Okays, that will be great as we will need a top cover for the infil. Hopefully we can work in some air to air combat. Right now I have to put in an ad for a base commander :D

Have the powers that be in Argentina imported in any fighters? Because as of right now, the closest they have in their current Air Force arsenal are some A-4 Skyhawks with an updated avionics package that came out of the F-16, plus the prop driven Pucaras that weren't that effective back in 1982.

A possibility would be, given Venezuela's situation, they've managed to get their hands on some of the hardware Hugo Chavez was buying from Russia before his ticket was punched. That would get them access to Su-30s, F-16s, and Hind gunships, since the Argentine Air Force's current inventory is pretty lacking, and the cartel forces are using their money to shore up where the government fell short. Past that, only Chile has anything of note, Uruguay and Paraguay operate some prop trainers from Brazil.

I wouldn't mind some air-to-air, which is why I asked.

Skyhawks 22
IA Pampa 22 (similar to the BAE Hawk)

We could say Cuba was very friendly towards the Cartel and managed to sneak in some Chinese Chengdu J-7s. That would make sense.

The Pampas were last listed as being pending delivered, that's why I didn't note them. The project drug on for almost a decade because Argentina couldn't manage paying for them. But if the Cartel somehow funneled the funds to get them paid off, that could work.
