The Atlantic Conveyor was pressed into service to transport Harriers and helicopters south to the Falklands. When she was sunk by an Exocet anti-ship missile on May 25, although over a dozen helicopters remained on board, the Harriers had fortunately been unloaded a week prior. Nevertheless, her sinking meant that only one Chinook was available in theater for heavy lifting.
