Anyone know what ordnance load the Pucará typically carried in the conflict? I belive Dante might find the info useful. notworthy

I had a look myself, but couldn't find much.
Some pictures here, some here showing multiple racks, one with rockets?

Agreed on the fun part, it was a modern day (1980s) invader. It does look a little overloaded with all those weapons, an armorers wet dream wink

HarryR: sorry for the delay replaying, but the standard loadout used in the war was:

- LAU-61 2.75-inch (19 rockets) pods (2 in each wing pylon, like photo you posted)
- up to 6x 100-125kg argentinean-made bombs on the centerline

Internal: 2x 20mm Hispano-Suiza HS.804 autocannons and 4x 7.62 mm M2 FM-20 machine guns.

Nice plane to surpress AK47 armed leftist guerillas or unarmed crowd control. Flying into an electronic battlefield against a foe ready for mach 2 intruders?
Thanks but no thanks. Going to give it a try anyway. Surviving a mission and reaching your goals is going to be very rewarding.
