Just a few days from the G20 summit in Buenos Aires, argentine and U.S. troops are coordinating efforts to tackle any possible conflicts or attacks on this reunion of the 20 most relevant governments and leaders of the world. Mass media has reported that 1000 U.S. Government operators, being intelligence, Secret Service and Special Operations Command have converged in Buenos Aires to guard every inch of president Trump’s schedule.
Other than VH-60N, “Marine One” helicopters, has come to our attention that the U.S. has deployed 4 MH-60M+ helicopters from the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment and 100+ Company troops in support of government officials, ready to be called in if necessary. This comes within a new defined context of urban threats, which has been in SOCOM’s crosshair since Trump´s inauguration in 2016 and therefore many exercises have been made consequently in large U.S. cities.
Media reports have confirmed that argentine special troops from the Army, Navy and Air Force will be also in alert with Rapid Deployment Force (Fuerza de Despliegue Rapido, FDR) ready to be mobilized with support of the 601 Helicopter Batallion. Fighters, Surveillance and Transport aircraft of participating nations will be operating or ready to from Carrasco Airport in Uruguay as well from the Mendoza Airport. Air coverage will be provided by the Argentine Air Force from El Palomar Air Force Base. Even if some consider the limited weaponry and lack of supersonic aircraft, to be insufficient.
