    Very cool - like the turbo tracker. A company called Enheat from Halifax (NS home town) was attempting to do a similar mod for the CAF - don't know how successful they were.

    Excellent pics, Charles. Very cool indeed. :cool:

    The upgrade itself was probably successful enough, but as far as I can remember the Trackers were retired still fitted with the old piston engines. :-k

    I think the CAF backed away from it and just decided to retire the Tracker.

    The argentine Trackers were intensively rebuild in the IAI factory Israel, with new wing, engines, radar, sonar and computer sistem, almost emerged like new planes.


    ----------------

    Some pics of a nasty incident wich hapen in december 2004:


    The argentine ship was the ARA Sarandi D-13, (MEKO 360) it was performing some night shooting with the double 40 mm fast fire Bofors guns, for some unknown reason the brasilian F-49 Rademaker ( former HMS Battleaxe) crossed his line of fire and the gun control locked on it.

    As result the carioca ship was blasted by the 40mm gunfire, luckily enough nobody was seriusly hurt.

    Doesn't look nice does it? They practically disabled the ship. The guidance radar (for SeaWolf) seems to be completely wasted, so is the SeaWolf launcher...

    It seems that the german and british ships still dont get alone. :rolleyes:

    Awesome Luck. :oops:

    Here is the argentine ship involved laid down in the Blomh Voss shipyard in late 1984, by the way MEKO means Modular Entwicklung Konstruction = Modular replacement contruction.
