Well look at it this way. Argentina was back then a military run country, the leaders wore military jackets. Their military was large and they had good enough equipment, not rusty old Ak's.

They landed on the Islands, took positions and had built up fortress type shelters ontop of hills. The falklands is a very hilly and wasteland kind of environment.

So before the UK had even made a response, Argentina had piled the Island with soldiers equipment and had built up positions.

The UK sent special forces (SAS) to destroy their airfields, the mission was a success they destroyed many jet fighters with few casaulties.

We took the Islands back with force, mostly thanks to 3 Para and the Royal Marines.
