Typhoons sent to Falklands

4 Eurofighter Typhoons have arrived at the RAF Mount Pleasant base on the Falkland Islands to take up air defence duties over the islands replacing the Tornado F3s. Argentina is raising a bit of a fuss of course but probably mostly for internal consumption.

any idea how hey are armed? Brimstone, Storm Shadow etc,, hopefully they are using a greater stand off weapon package than the Argies have incase it kicks off!

Wooooooo!

Well the Typhoons are for air defence duties, they would send down some Tornado GR4s if they wanted a ground attack capability.
