The Argentine Air Force (Spanish: Fuerza Aérea Argentina, or simply FAA) is the national aviation branch of the Armed Forces of the Argentine Republic. Beginning in 1912 as the Argentine Army Aviation, it eventually blossomed into it's own independent military branch in 1945.

Argentine Air Force in Southern VictoryEdit

Like many other air forces, the Argentine Air Force was born out of the Great War. Although relativity small, the AAF launched an uncoordinated raid against US ships sailing around their coast in 1917. This was the first ever attempt at naval air aviation warfare.

The attack succeeded in that a few bombs hit the USS Dakota, and although it didn't sink her, it forced the combined US and Chilean fleet to leave the Argentine coast and head out into deeper waters.[1]
