During the South Atlantic conflict, and within the framework of the so-called Southern Air Force, Group 5 de Caza deployed 24 A-4B in Río Gallegos. On May 1 they mistakenly attacked the Argentine merchant ELMA Formosa. On May 12, a Group 5 squad suffered the loss of three aircraft during an attack on the HMS Glasgow destroyer, two of them shot down by Sea Wolf missiles of the frigate HMS Brilliant and the third crashed into the sea while eluding a missile ( the deceased were the first lieutenant Oscar Bustos and the lieutenants Jorge Ibarlucea and Mario Nivoli). A second wave on the HMS Glasgow managed to damage it with bombs, without them exploding. After this action Lieutenant Gavazzi's A-4B was shot down by friendly fire at Prairie del Ganso.
The bulk of the fighting in which the unit was involved occurred in the Strait of San Carlos. On May 21, the unit commanded by Captain Pablo Carballo damaged the frigate HMS Ardent, that day another five aircraft seriously damaged the frigate HMS Argonaut. During the 23 of that month, a great attack on the English fleet ended with the frigate HMS Antelope, with the loss of the unit under the command of the first lieutenant Luciano Guadagnini, who died in that battle. On May 25, Captain Hugo Angel del Valle Palaver's A-4B was shot down on Pebble Island by a Sea Dart missile from HMS Coventry, killing the pilot. Hours after that confrontation, the same British destroyer was hit by bombs of the Argentine Skyhawks, sinking in a short time.
Already in the final days of the actions, the A-4B stood out in the attack on the RFA Sir Galahad and RFA Sir Tristram logistic vessels, which were sunk along with a large amount of the war material of their cargo.
A total of 10 Skyhawks from the Hunting Group 5 were lost during the conflict.
