The Argentine plan for the invasion of the Islas Malvinas called for a surprise attack on the Moody Brook Barracks by the Marine Amphibious Commando Company. The 2nd Marine Battalion would land by amphibious tractors on Yorke Beach and supply any additional firepower that was necessary to subdue the British garrison. A platoon from the 25th Regiment was assigned to seize Government House, the seat of power in the islands. However, when the Argentines realized that the element of surprise may have been lost, the plan was changed so that the 25th Infantry was now responsible for seizing the airport and the Marine Commandos would secure Government House.

Meanwhile, the British had elected to not to send home the rotating, platoon-sized garrison from the previous year, effectively doubling the number of troops on the islands. A small section of naval ratings from HMS Endurance was added to the garrison. The British plan was to fight a delaying battle starting at Yorke Beach, the anticipated landing spot for an amphibious landing. It was hoped that if fighting continued for long enough, political pressure could be brought to bear on the Argentines forcing them to withdraw from the area.

I gave it moderately pro UK because the bulk of the Argentine forces never see any combat.
Way to long and way too big of a map.
Do yourself a favor and skip this version also.
