  1. TU95 - just what the R.A.F needs. It can probably reach the Falklands and still make the return journey to ascension island without a refuel. Very versatile, could be used for electronic counter measures, or to harass the Argies from a very long way with standoff use as a missile carrier. If they ever did get on the Falkands, we could use this in a variety of ways to attack them, also with drones launched from submarine carriers too. Ok, the Vulcan may be gone, but this is the next best thing, and may be a cheap option too. The Poles or such other countries may have a few that we could buy and adapt for various purposes.
