The first is that while Argentina would probably like to have the capabilities that the Giuseppe Garibaldi could provide the Argentine Navy, under the present circumstances the Argentine Navy cannot afford those capabilities. Further, even if the vessel and associated kit was gifted to Argentina, it still could not afford them. If the first two issues could be resolved, there are still the very real issues that such a sale/gift would require approvals from other nations, and given the history of Argentina the likelihood of such approvals are remote, at best. gas monkey cast If by some miracle the first three issues could be resolved, the Argentine Navy still could not make effective use of such a large & high value asset, because the rest of the Argentine Navy is too decrepit to provide the escort and support capabilities needed. Argentine Navy vessels rarely go out to sea due to parts issues, kit being obsolete, munitions expired, and as a result personnel lack training and the opportunities to build up experience. Part of this is due to issues with funding, and part of this is due to restrictions on what can be exported to Argentina.

Click to expand…Several important bits to remember. One of the first, regarding the age of warships, is age is relevant when considering what the intended or designed service age is/was supposed to be. electricity worksheets grade 6 USN carriers have & are planned for 50+ years of operation and service. Some of what that means is that structural portions of the vessel are designed to be robust, and/or easily repairable/replaceable. electricity origin A vessel with an intended service life of only 20 – 30 years is unlikely to have such robust construction or the ability to inspect, repair, or replace some of the structural elements after 30+ years because the expectation would be that the ship would be decommissioned by then.

It is also worth noting where a vessel was designed to operate and under what conditions. I would imagine the weather and sea conditions along portions of Argentina, especially southern Argentina by Tierra del Fuego is a good deal colder and rougher than would normally be encountered in the Mediterreanean Sea, which does not have an equivalent to either the Roaring Forties, or the Furious Fifties and the associated wind and sea/wave conditions. While the heating and cooling systems could be modified to handle the temperature conditions if the existing systems are not optimized for what Argentina would see, modifying the vessel to handle 40+ knot winds and 8 m high waves is another matter.

As for the ability actually sell the ship (or any other piece of military kit), it depends on what parts and components the vessel or vehicle contains, and who owns the IP and/or manufactured it. In the case of the Giuseppe Garibaldi, even if all the parts and components were manufactured in Italy, a number of the parts were either licensed production of contain foreign IP. The GE LM2500 GT’s as already mentioned are US designs, as is the AN/SPS-52 radar, AN/SLQ-25 Nixie torpedoe decoy, Mk-29 box missile launchers, and so on. gas upper back pain Now it is possible that all systems which would require foreign approval could be removed, but that would end up increasing the cost, because funding would need to be spent on the removal, and then even more funding spent on selecting, installing and then integrating an equivalent replacement.

As for suggesting that Argentina change how and why it funds the armed forces the way it does so that it can afford a specific ship, I would suggest that if something as drastic as this was needed to support the idea put forward, then that illustrates how unrealistic the idea is. gas 87 Since just after the Falklands War, the Argentine people have not been interested in permitting their military having or being able to seize power like the Argentine military had done several times historically. Further, the Argentine economy and gov’t spending & debt has not been what would be described as ‘healthy’ which means that even if Argentina did want to raise defence spending (and risk more coups or the rise of another junta) there has not really been much room to do so.

Realistically it would take years of increased funding to either get the existing Argentine Navy vessels back into proper working order, or replace the vessels with newer, working vessels. Once the lack of functional vessels starts to get addressed, then crews can start to work on building up time at sea so they can make effective use of what they have. Consider this article on the state of the Argentine Navy back in 2013. It can take years to rebuild from such conditions, as it is not just a matter of repairing or replacing vessels, but the crews lack of training and experience means.
