READ BEFORE USE
Since the fuel tank and the missile do not have the same weight, the plane will suffer a bit of roll. To land on the aircraft carrier with only the tank and without the missile, stay above 300 km/h. If you don't have both, you can landing without problems

FALKLANDS / Falklands

Super Etendard aircraft sink Royal Navy destroyer The attack on the English fleet carried out on May 4, 1982 went down in history as a tactical milestone due to the combination of scout aircraft and attack aircraft, equipped with Exocet missiles.

May 4, 1982 was the date that marked a milestone in the history of the Argentine Navy and in its performance during the South Atlantic Conflict, due to the audacity, courage and professionalism of its naval pilots.

That day, two Super Etendard aircraft from the Second Naval Air Hunting and Attack Squadron equipped with Exocet missiles sank the British destroyer HMS “Sheffield”, with information provided by a Neptune aircraft from the Naval Air Exploration Squadron.

That morning, the Neptune under the command of Lieutenant Commander Ernesto Proni Leston, detected the “Sheffield” southeast of Soledad Island and followed it stealthily for about 3 hours. At mid-morning, the Super Etendard planes, piloted by Lieutenant Commander Augusto Bedacarratz and Frigate Lieutenant Armando Mayora, took off from the Río Grande Naval Air Base, armed with Exocet missiles. “Launch, now!” ordered Bedacarratz.

Mayora did not hear the order, but he saw the launch, he pressed his trigger and the missile detached from one of the wings of his plane fell and ignited the propellant engine.

The “Sheffield” did not detect the attack until an officer on the command bridge saw a wake almost level with the sea.)

Five seconds later, the Exocet hit right in the center of the ship where the Combat Information Center was located, eight feet above the waterline.

From the hole that remained, a 30-meter column of fire and smoke emerged, uncontrollable, which set the ship on fire and forced it to be abandoned. The “Sheffield” was badly damaged and sank after six days.

    Great plane, and a great story from the Fockland war, 1981.
