    This week the Navy practiced carrier approaches (but no touch and goes) with the USS Carl Vinson, using Super Etendards and Turbo Trackers. An Argentine delegation was also hosted aboard the ship.

    Glad to see the tracker still in use in the Argentinian Navy, I wonder why Venezuela stop using them and now it's without an airplane for ASW and maritime patrols.

    Yeah the Tracker is pretty useful and it helps that it can operate with the Brazilians and their carrier. It's pretty interesting that they got upgraded after they had paid money to Israel to buy some A-4 Skyhawks, that the US vetoed. So they got an engine upgrade with the money already paid instead.

    Some more pictures.
