Britain will sell weapons to anyone, without thinking about it. That's why during the Falkands we found ourselves up against Destroyers which we sold
only a few years before.
Actually there was only one ship that we encountered that was sold to the Argenineans by the UK, and it didn't really take part in any conflicts as
the carrier it was escorting (an ex-WW2 British carrier sold to Norway in the 1940s) stayed home like a frightened school girl.
The second Type 42 destroyer the Argentineans operated was built by them, not us.
The Typ 42 was sold to Argentina before the Junta rose to power.
