Some questions on Falklands 1982

Hi All. (First pardon for my Englishman)

I want to do some questions that can seem to be awkward, but if I comment on them it is by that they are disqualified. If there is someone who believes that they must not be answered, I understand it.

There is known the name of ships that took part actively in the South Atlantic, but there were ships as the HMS Lowestoff (F-103) that they navigated upon the South Atlantic between Ascension and St Helena and it does not appear in any list.

There were more ships?

On May 15th the XV232 (Nimrod) in the second RV with the VICTOR (Parallel between Brazil and Uruguay) it received a sign TACAN Band L proceeding from a possible warship that was accompanied by a small fishing boat....

There were ships for these missions?

The first RV (28º14 ' S - 28º36 ' W) was "guided" possibly by the HMS Leeds Castle.

Thank you
 
Hello Javier. As you seem to have a genuine historical interest and not preparing for Op CORPORATE (or whatever it was called in Buenos aires) Phase 2, I think you deserve some public domain answers.

The Nimrod RV with the Victor wouldn't need ship assistance (they'd probably avoid it like the plague). They would likely have made the contact via Airborne TACAN. The principles involved can be read in;

HMS Leeds Castle: operate in May in the South Atlantic. On May 18 it was overflown by a C-130 in 40 º S - 37 º W (National Archives AIR 25/190)

Thank you.A great help

It has been a lot of time thinking that the TACAN was the ship (UK ¿AN/SRN-15?)

I understand that the ship was to provide coverage in case of problems, because of it in the routes of flight of the planes always there was a ship to half a way.

On May 1 HMS Brillant (VULCAN)
On May 12 Group Fearles (The plane in his route flew to his left side the HMS Ardent)
On May 15 Leeds Castle

Thank you.

Welcome Javier.

There are a number of veterans of the Falklands Conflict on the site and some well informed amatuer naval / military historians. There isn't much that remains secret, although if it did, I wouldn't necessarily know. I was safe in Portsmouth in 1982.

Good luck with your research.

Just checked the SAMA website to see if you had asked your question there, as I suggested above.

As you havent, I would suggest that you perhaps do not have a genuine historical interest

Strange place the interweb.

Maybe his computer screen is displaying the "circle of doom" and randomly re-posting the same comment, too :winkrazz:

Indeed. There is life outside the interweb.

NS may be right about the circle of doom. Javier's post count is 1, it should be 2 if duplicates only count once and 5 if the reposts count. By the way, Javier is posting from Spain not Argentina so don't jump to concluions....dapperdunn.

I may clean up but there is something more pressing to do. Don't take that as a lack of interest dapperdunn.

Another three duplicates chopped. One left as it does have a little extra ( not a duplicate then ) .

Javier seems to be having a combination of finger trouble, perhaps some forum icons lost in translation and even random internet strangeness. He has three posts on view but a post count of 1. A job for Mulder and Scully?

I'm trying to help him out by PM, please bear with me, and Javier.

Edited to add, to add to the weirdness, this post is not appearing on the front page even after refreshing; last one is NS's one above.
