Hehehehe ;D I love empanadas, how do you know them??

back to the topic, not even the empanadas could save FAA :'(

And maybe Venezuela with those brand new Sukhois, or Brazil with the big AF.... It's difficult to say, but very interesting topic.

One thing that I can remark from the FAA are the pilots. In spite of not having the best of the trainments, their skills and bravery are widely known, thanks to the Malvinas War.

I just don't vote because I'm not sure, but I'm thinking about it, and when I'll be sure, I'll vote. Where are you from?

Hi, welcome to the MILAVIA Forums! Yeah voting less than a sec, making up one's mind could take a bit longer. And like you said esp. combined with research.

It's difficult

Brazil has a large force, but only upgraded F-5s and a handful of Mirage 2000Cs are the best fighters. Shouldn't forget the AMX though. There's the Navy as well though with the A-4s,
Chile has the latest F-16s, and quite a number of second hand MLU's... however they are not fully operational yet. So Mirages (or similar) and F-5s.
Then Peru looks good with their MiG-29s and Mirage 2000s, however they don't have that many of them, right? But they have Su-22/25s as well...
Venezuela has Mirage 50s, F-16s, F-5s, all bit old and those F-5s are seriously in need of upgrade/overhaul. Those Su-30s are great, but how many are delivered just this month? only a few...
Colombia & Argentina will not be my vote...sorry.

When looking beyond the fighters, I'd say either Chile or Brazil, especially since they have AEW platforms.

Brazil, mainly because they have US support. Allies look after each other, and we all know america has some, ah, unfriendly friends in South America

i think that the best air force in south America is btw Brazil and Peru, mainly cause their pilot have a lot of skills, and their planes they would be though to beat in a dogfigth. >:D >:D >:D >:D
