"The Argentinian airforce would beg to differ"

The Argentinian Air Force wasn't a very capable opponent and had to operate very afar from its land air bases. Still they could sink Brirish ships which didn't have a CAP keeping attack planes away, and clear the area from enemy recce planes.

That's also why escortless Vulcans could bomb Port Stanley without being intercepted.
