    "The task force would be made up of ”a battalion of Marines distributed in two battleships, two heavy cruisers, a light cruiser, twelve torpedo boats, a tanker and nine tracking vessels“. To this would be added another 750 members from the Army which would have the main task, ”taking control of Port Stanley“"

    The two battleships would have been the Rivadavia and Moreno, the only South American dreadnaughts built in the US. Roughly on par with the USS Arkansas but faster.
