Exocets were only launched by Super etendards of argentine had only a handful.MIGleader said:wellm the argentinaian pilots wern't very well trained for a2a, just to fire exocets.
The argentineswere operating at the very limit of their combat radius and they could not spend any time or fuel on a2a combat. The Superetendard is not a manouverable aircraft and it would have been useless to try and engage sea harriers. The majority of agentine sorties were flown by skyhawks dropping regular iron bombs. These pilots were described by the english as very brave and skilled. The argentine mirages were not succesful and frequently launched their a2a missiles outside parameters. But again they were operating at the edge of their combat radius and did not have time spend in the combat zone. The Argentines were also completly without help from and ground based radars and fighter controllers.
