English version of attack submarine ARA Santa Fe (S-21) in Grytviken

The "English version" of the attack Argentine submarine ARA Santa Fe (S-21) in South Georgia held on April 24, 1982 , accounts for the participation of six (6) helicopters Royal Navy: one (1) Westland Wessex HAS.3, one (1) Westland Lynx HAS.2 and four (4) Westland Wasp HAS.1.

also adds that jumped on the submarine, two (2) depth charges MK-11, one (1) MK-46 torpedo and no less than eight (8) AS-12 missiles, this in addition to the gun shots made against the sail. A story that seems exaggerated and that the assumed true, would suggest a miracle, pilot inexperience or failure of the weapon, given the limited destructive effect on the spacecraft Argentina (Although it was damaged and left out of combat would be expected with this type of attack that would have a total destruction).

How short would have direct impact on the sub 4 (four) AS-12 missiles. But the two depth charges MK-11 that exploded on the port of Santa Fe caused the damage key to cancel your ability to dive. There were also impacts of shrapnel in the sail.
