Hi,


Supersonic Super Etendard, that would have resulted from the cancellation of the Atar 8K50 engine in 1975 and adoption of the identically-sized afterburning F404-GE-400 engine plus dorsal fuel tanks. Result: +45% thrust and +30% range on internal fuel, and all the good things that go along with that (frees up hardpoints for more weapons, interceptor capability etc). Service entry delayed two years from 1978 to 1980, with Argentina still getting a couple before the Falklands and a larger production run eventually replacing the Crusaders in service.

This looks a lot like fan fiction, perhaps a mod. should move it to the alt.hist. sub-forum. Certainly Argentina could never take delivery of a F404 powered Entendard thanks to the US arms embargo.
