France will supply Argentina with five deck-mounted attack aircraft "Super Etandar Modernize"

24
After lengthy negotiations, the governments of Argentina and France signed a contract for the supply of the Argentinean Navy five carrier-based Super Etendard Modernise from the marine aviation France.


According to Jane's Defense Weekly, the contract worth 12,5 million euros (14,5 million dollars), in addition to aircraft, includes the supply of a simulator and spare engines. All contract deliveries must be completed by December 2017.

France will supply Argentina with five deck-mounted attack aircraft "Super Etandar Modernize"


The goal of the project is to ensure that the serviceable half of the Argentine Navy’s Super Etandar 10 aircraft, which are currently unsuitable for flight, are the only “supersonic asset”.

It is noted that in 1981, Argentina acquired the Super Etandar 14 aircraft in France, three of which were lost during operation. The remaining 11 machines cannot be operated due to the lack of spare parts. Since 2014, the Argentine company FAdeA has been trying to negotiate with the French authorities on the purchase of spare parts and new equipment for upgrading attack aircraft and ensuring their suitability for flight, however, due to the economic crisis in the country, this project was not implemented.

"Super Etandar" can be used to perform various tasks, including the destruction of ground and surface targets, providing air defense, both from the deck of an aircraft carrier, and from conventional airfields.

    To what extent Argentina is constrained in the means that it is forced to exploit the junk of the 70's, the beginning of the 80's. They are hardly a threat to the British.

      Heh heh heh ... the Argentines have at least some sea drums. And what does Britain have on the decks of AB? I understand that the “Harrier” safely decommissioned, and the F-35B has not yet been delivered? And the "Queen" is now the largest helicopter carrier in the world?
      If the args decide to replay the Falkland War, there will be nothing to cover the British air connection. And without fighter cover for ships, even French junk with “Exosets” is dangerous - for the launch range of the “Exoset” is greater than the range of the air defense system on the PMV. One air defense missile defense system does not provide naval connections.

        I don’t think you are right. England is not as helpless as you describe. The fleet and without the help of aviation at the moment will cope with the antediluvian Argentine aviation. In addition (if we discard everything) Britain is a member of NATO with all the ensuing consequences. But Argentina is hardly capable of anything now.

          This is not an argument, most NATO countries will not be able to swim, they will not be able to fly to Argentina .. bully

          The same France is unlikely to send an expeditionary force to Argentina ...

          The United States, if only, a duck in Buenos Aires, so the United States fuel ...

          Although it is a shame for Argentina with a population of more than 40 million people, having some natural resources (such as uranium) to sit in shit ..

          How? No, I’m actually interested in the technique of firing a naval air defense system at an unobserved air target.
          RN currently can only deal with the consequences - not with carriers, but with already issued anti-ship missiles.

          Britain is not even able to reach the Falklands. All ships are at the wall.
          For the last war with Argentina, they gathered around the world a thread. Plus, logistical and technical and intelligence in place of their Americans supported.

        Alas, anti-ship missiles do not appear in deliveries, for example, the Falklands, the pilots are not bad there, but what will they do if half of the bombs do not explode ... request

      The Falkland War taught nothing. If you want to successfully fight with nuggle-saxes, buy Russian.

        To buy something, you need to sell something or take a loan like Venezuela hoping that they will write off

      Well, to sense, if they cannot give a full-fledged rebuff, but keep junk, educate pilots, how much money to swell to nowhere and just like that.

      Last time, this "junk" showed the best efficiency.
      In general, everything is written in the article:

        So it showed the best result then, but it is necessary now and tomorrow.

    This is still aviation. Although already outdated. And far from the worst car.
