It's only news if we read that ALL of our Submarines have gone there! It's a non-story

Seeing as Argentina are down to their last Fray Bentos tin of beef, are their Latin American allies able to side militarily with them? Just a thought.

The COFS consists of the following submarines:

* ARA
San Juan (S-42)
Salta-class (Type 209) * ARA Salta (S-31)
1 Tactical Divers Group (
Buzos Tacticos'')
1 Rescue Ship

The two TR1700 class boats are new since the Falklands, built in Germany 1984/1985, they look to have a reasonable capability, very fast re load time for torpedoes. Argentinia have two more on the stocks which are reported as 70 and 30 per cent complete with building suspended

They had the T42's last time they had a go ... trouble was the couldn't get spares so they were fcuked alongside the wall which by Janners list looks to be still the case ... in reserve = fcuked! Either that or they've canniballed one to get the other one going as a LLC.

As for a Sub going down South ... they'll never know will they .... till its too late! :-D
