Yes. They got their star kicked at sea. British Ships sunk and damaged - Falklands War 1982 If the Argentinians had low-level retarded bombs, Britain would have lost the Falklands. Their Naval SAMs were not that good at tracking & locking on to low level targets. The Harriers were hampered by a lack of range - being able to stay on CAP station for about 10 minutes. The only thing that saved the Harriers was the AIM-9L, which had an all-aspect IR seeker head.
