I almost felt bad for the poor Argies while I was down in the Falklands. That wasn't even a contest was it? Poor fuckers had no chance and we didn't even get support from our great saviours in America. All that way and it was over before it got going really. The one thing we did learn from them though is do not make warship superstructure from aluminum. It burns nicely.

I could tell you some great stories about the Ghurkas down there...but it's too gruesome for you poor sensitive Americans.

cant argue that one


although the point about US aid IS debatable (Ascencion [sic] refueling,etc)..

I take it the sheffield was not made out of aluminum?

Nope..It was the Type 21 Frigates. HMS Ardent and Antelope in this case. Beautiful looking ships though.

interesting:


HMS Sheffield (D80) was the second Royal Navy ship to be named after the city of Sheffield in Yorkshire. She was a Type 42 Guided Missile Destroyer laid down by Vickers Shipbuilding and Engineering at Barrow-in-Furness on 15 January 1970, launched on 10 June 1971 and commissioned on 16 February 1975.

An explosion during construction killed two dockyard workers [1] and damaged a section of hull which was replaced, ironically, with a section from an identical ship, ARA Hercules, being built for the Argentine Navy.[2] The ship was part of the Task Force sent to the Falkland Islands during the Falklands War. She was struck by an Exocet air-launched anti-ship missile from a Super Etendard aircraft belonging to the Argentine Navy on 4 May 1982 and foundered on 10 May 1982.

And the General Belgrano used to be the USS Phoenix so we sunk an American ship....SEE! America was involved in the Falklands conflict after all.

Ah, I love a happy ending...
