Annex V

BASICA INFORMATION FOR AUTHORIZATION FROM NATIONAL FORCES OUT OF THE NATIONAL TERRITORY.

1. Type of Activity to Develop:

Combined Multilateral Training Exercise on the Sea "UNITAS XLIX - FASE ATLANTICO - 2008".

2. Project origin:

Exercise begun in 1960, originally between the ARMADA of the United States of AMERICA and the armed forces of all the countries of SUDAMERICA, bilaterally with each of them, in order to provide the participants with the opportunity to conduct combined naval operations, to integrate the operational capacities of their naval, air and marine infantry forces, to optimize the enlistment of the participating material and human means, to promote mutual military confidence, understanding and understanding.

Since 1999, the exercises carried out separately with our country were unified, with the FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF BRAZIL and with the ORIENTAL REPUBLIC OF URUGUAY, in a single phase called "ATLANTICO", rotative and that during 2008 will be carried out in the FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF BRAZIL.

Other regional and extra-continental armed forces are also invited to participate with vessels, aircraft or observer officers.

3. Principles of the Objectives of Activity:

The implementation of the Combined Exercise UNITAS FASE ATLANTICO contributes to increasing the level of interoperability with the armed forces of the participating countries.

This is achieved through the exchange of information on the command and control systems of the naval means of surface, submarines and participating aerials, of doctrines and procedures and the combined training in the conduct of Multinational Forces at sea. The special feature of the media used by the US AMERICA ARMADA is its advanced technology, which allows us to appreciate and evaluate new technical capacities, as well as to increase the level of training and interoperability.

The realization of these types of exercises, framed by international military cooperation, serves to strengthen mutual trust and integration with the continent ' s armed forces, especially with the regional ones, and to maintain an adequate level of training to increase naval capacities, interoperability and mutual trust between the Armed Forces.

5. Situational framework:

The guiding concept of this exercise is based on the implementation of a hypothetical international mission mandated by the United Nations Organization for Foreign Affairs, characterized by ongoing crisis management and pawning rules during the transfer of a force under multiple threats to a simulated area of operations. In this context, tactics, doctrine and operational procedures are developed and improved for the use of naval forces and operations at sea are coordinated by involving a considerable number of ships of different types and aircraft based on land and on board.

The various types of exercises to be carried out, allow the supply of ships to train in the participation and conduct of operations against air, surface and submarine threats, re-provisioning in the sea and communications and electronic war, as well as to carry out a wide variety of marine maneuvers that are required throughout the exercise.

Annex VI

BASICA INFORMATION FOR AUTHORIZATION FROM NATIONAL FORCES OUT OF THE NATIONAL TERRITORY.

1. Type of Activity to Develop:

Combined Aircraft Training Exercise at Sea "GRINGO GAUCHO - 2008".

2. Project origin:

It's a bilateral opportunity exercise. It develops when a carrier of the ARMADA of the United States of AMERICA performs a navigation near the Argentine coast. In general these transits happen when one of those units must change its apostolate from one coast to the other of the United States. In that change, they must make the route through the southern end of the American continent since by its dimensions the aircraft carriers have restricted the passage through the Panama Canal. On certain occasions the carrier was accompanied by an escort ship, frigate or destroyer.

In the past, similar exercises have been carried out on the following opportunities:

1990: passage from the USS carrier "ABRAHAM LINCOLN".

1991: passage from the USS carrier "KITTY HAWK".

1993: passage from the USS "CONSTELLATION".

2004: passage from the USS aircraft carrier "RONALD REAGAN".

3. Principles of the Objectives of Activity:

The ARMADA ARGENTINA has for years had the capacity of naval aviation boarded with fixed wing. The current lack of a proper carrier makes it difficult to maintain an acceptable level of that capacity, for which a possibility is to exercise with naval units of that type of other armed.

The passage of an ARMADA aircraft carrier of the United States of America off our coasts is an unbeatable opportunity to train in a capacity of great importance for our Navy.

On the other hand a combined operation, of high complexity, involving different components of the naval power of different countries, implies an excellent test to ponder our degree of interoperability, the level of mutual trust and professional respect.

4. Activity configuration:

(a) Place of realization:

International waters, up to our coasts.

(b) Dates of Egress. Duration of Activity: During the first fortnight of May 2008, with an approximate duration of CUATRO (4) days.

(c) Participating countries:

ARGENTINA REPUBLIC

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

1) Participant Effects: Quantity, Types, Equipment and Arms

2) Propios means:

. UNA (1) Corbeta Type MEKO 140.

. DOS (2) Helicopters Sea King H-3.

. DOS (2) Helicopters Fennec AS-555.

. DOS (2) Aeronaves Tracker S2T.

). DOS (2) Aeronaves Super Etendard (SUE).

3) Media of the ARMADA of the United States of AMERICA:

". UN (1) US carriers "GEORGE WASHINGTON".

(d) Deployment of the Troops and Media: The exercises will be carried out in international waters outside the territorial sea of our country, in accordance with the criteria set out in the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea. The aircraft carrier of the United States Navy will not take port or enter within its own territorial waters.

(e) Immunity: No specific immunities are requested for national forces leaving the country.

(f) Approximate costs: The operating costs of our means amount to the sum of COUNTRY PESOS AND OCHO MIL SCIENTA AND UNO ($ 248.181.00).

(g) Source of Funding: Costs are covered with ARGENTINA ARMADA budget funds.

5. Situational framework:

The exercise, as a whole, allows the development and improvement of tactics and operational procedures for the use of naval forces and the coordination of operations at sea. In particular, interoperability is strengthened in one of the most complex operations in the naval scenario that is the integrated activity of ships and aircraft working in a coordinated manner.

The aircraft of their own, both fixed and rotating wing, will have the opportunity to train in operations on the deck of a aircraft carrier, interact with other aircraft operating from the same platform, coordinate actions and observe the teamwork of a unit that undoubtedly constitutes a gravitating tool of a naval force.

The own surface units will carry out escort tasks and will be trained in air control tasks, rescue stations and other specific tactical activities of a naval force operating around a carrier.

It is important to note that a naval force of a coalition of countries, under the mandate of an international organization, could eventually be configured around a carrier. The training of own naval units, in tasks coordinated with that platform, generates a qualitative difference of importance in measuring our capacities.

Also, a surface unit will accompany the aircraft carrier of the ARMADA of the United States of AMERICA in its transit through waters near our shores.
