Well it's a great ac but would be for a hypothetical scenario post the first conflict.

From Wikipedia:

In 1982 during the Falklands War three Phantom FGR2s of No. 29 Squadron were on active Quick Reaction Alert duty on Ascension Island to protect the base from air attack.

Ascension island is >3000 miles from the Falklands will that even be on the map?

You might need a few A-A refueling sessions to get them South

It was a precautionary move to protect a vital airbase in the campaign, but the risk was very low from it ever happening. As pointed out, the range to Ascension Islands is in the 7500Km area and not much less from the main Argy bases. This would effectively put it out of the range of any strike force.

Phantoms were stationed at Mount Pleasant after the conflict, following runway lengthening...
Would make a good 'what-if' Falklands II follow-on pack once all the historical options have been explored.
(oops..just spotted Oseau's post smile )
