The Argentine government has approved a purchase of 18 RBS 70NG anti-aircraft missile launchers, three simulators, and an undisclosed number of missiles, an Argentine Air Force source told Jane’s . The purchase, as well as some restorations for other anti-aircraft weapons – 25 mm and 30 mm artillery – in the army and air force, was included in the 2018 budget. The new missiles will be distributed between the army and air force, while the navy already has them in inventory.
The Argentine Army on 24 January received the first five of 20 Agusta Bell AB 206 helicopters that it purchased from the Italian government, an army source told Jane’s . Negotiations for this purchase began in 2009 and lasted until a final agreement was reached and budget allocated in 2017. The other 15 aircraft are expected to arrive before the end of February, including a batch of spares, stretchers, and 7.62 mm miniguns, the source said.
The Argentine Air Force chief of staff, Brigadier General Enrique Víctor Amrein, on 29 December signed a contract with local company INVAP’s assistant manager, Marcelo Basigalup, to modernise a radar, update another with new software, and purchase a new system. An AN/TPS-43 radar will be modernised to the MTPS-43 standard, developed by INVAP, and this includes digitising all systems and overhauling the hardware.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
