Surface Forces: March 4, 2000


Argentina has received the first two of eight surplus UH-1H helicopters; the others will arrive later this year. They will be used by the 3rd Helicopter Squadron to support the Argentine Marine Corps. The Argentine Coast Guard has just received four Alucat-1050 patrol boats built in the Netherlands. The Coast Guard already has 22 smaller Alucat-850 boats (850 tons). The new boats will have a top speed of 28 knots and a range of 540km. --Stephen V Cole
