    Good news for the Armada Argentina today;



    An icebreaker has been contracted for the 2009/10 season for $8million.
    Only another stop-gap for the never ending Alrmirante Irizar saga, but it's better than nothing! I'm not aware of any renaming to something more hispanic.

    Its 'being fixed'. Low budget, and lak of willingnes on helping the military are delaying this from being finished.

    Anti military attitude got to the point of industrial sabotage?

    Not precisely. Just anti military attitude, small budget, and a Defense Ministry ruled by people with out skills.

    No, the Super Pumas have no armament. But the navy did modify the ASH-3D Sea King to fire the Exocet. I'll see if I can dig up a picture or vid.

    EDIT: here's one with the AM.39
