Topic: Wrong country


Pale Rider you mixed up South American countries that was Chile who bought those nice goodies. Google Chile you'll see a lot nice weapons bought in the last five year including naval as well. Chile has I guess by now close to 400 tanks Leo 1 and IIs, pretty desent armed forces for such a thin country. You right about the Ex-Holland Vipers too I think 18 A/B upgraded Falcons to add to the ten Block-52 bought from United States with Israeli gear/systems inside. There F-5III are advance too and even have a bunch of slightly upgraded Holland Mirage 50s. The Mirages have been rumored for to sale to Colombia and/or Ecuador, to date nothing moved. They might be in storage already too to cut cost. I've read in the past US pilots saying only good things about Chile's AF.

Oh Crap! you are correct, sorry for the mix up, it will start getting real interesting in this part of the world with leaders like Chavez and his Socialist call. I anticapate that we will see a major build up of arms from each country.
