The Argentine Navy has begun a service-life extension programme for its four P-3B Orion maritime patrol fleet.
The first P-3B (serial 6-P-56) was delivered to Fábrica Argentina de Aviones (FAdeA) Brigadier San Martin on 27 April. The aircraft is to operate for another 15 years after its modernisation programme, the service said.
The programme includes a comprehensive structural revision and integration of new ISR sensors. janes
