 Veterans: Useful Information



The Icebreaker ARA “Almirante Irizar” (“Admiral Irizar”) it’s intimately related with the actions of our country in our Antarctic territory.

Since 1978 is a familiar presence in ice-covered waters, carrying out campaigns that are a huge logistical and scientific effort as nautical, meteorological and  glaciological conditions severe enough not to provide room for error.

In contrast, little is known about their outstanding participation in the South Atlantic conflict in March 1982 when Argentina, our country fight with the British Empire to recover the Malvinas Islands.

There are also a lot of highlights made ​​by the various units involved in operations in the South Atlantic, almost unknown. For a better understanding of those historic days, are grouped in the "Analysis and Reflections" some timely published in the bulletin of the “Centro Naval” of Buenos Aires.
