    The Argies would be better served by buying SIAI Marchettis, which already do all the things they are looking for. I believe they could get some bargains at the Belgian Air Force, who still operate about 30 of these..

    This project, IA-100, has already proven not to be technologically, commercially, or economically viable.

    Rossi is the typical Argentine politician who only knows how to make announcements. And it is better if the announcement has a nationalistic and emotional impact.

    During the current year there is no a single purchase order issued by the FAA for Pampa III. Nor was any Pampas manufactured during the CFK presidency ...

    Clearly, this PROJECT WILL NOT BE DONE.
