25 May Hector Lucero was hit by 40mm fire from the Fearless....
Yes, Sea Cat was old '60 technology but still some books report hits due to the facts that the theater was dense of ships and it's not rare that multiple missiles can have engaged the same target.
Speaking of sources of information, this is what the book "The Official History of the Falklands Campaign"(Vol.2 2005 by Sir Lawrence Freedman) is reporting:

Sea Cat: Original claims - 6, increased to 8 'confirmed and 2 probable' in post war analysis. This was reduced to 0 or 1 kills and possibly 4 damaged in the Defence Operational Analysis Establishment (DOAE) report of 1984.
21 May 1982 1330Z: Dagger shot down by either Sea Cat (Plymouth) or Sea Wolf (Broadsword)

Sea Dart claimed 8 kills. No mention made of reductions, and all confirmed.
9 May 1907Z: SA330L (Coventry)
25 May 1230, 1530Z: A-4B, A-4C (Coventry)
30 May 1735, 1736: Two A-4C (Exeter, although Avenger claimed one by 4.5" fire)
6 June 0408Z: Gazelle (Cardiff) - this was friendly fire, only recently cleared up.
7 June 1203Z: Learjet (Exeter)
14 June 0155Z: Canberra (Exeter)

Sea Wolf claimed 5 kills. No mention made of reductions, although one might be Sea Cat.
12 May 1644Z: Three A-4B shot down by Sea Wolf (Brilliant) - 2 direct hits, one crashed avoiding fire.
21 May 1330Z: Broadsword or Plymouth (Sea Cat)
23 May 1650Z: A-4B - either Broadsword or Rapier.

Blowpipe had 9 claimed kills and 2 probables. This was reduced to 1 or 2 confirmed kills and up to 6 damaged.
28 May 2000Z: MB.339A

Rapier claimed 9 kills, increased to 14 kills and 6 probable post-war. DOAE reduced this to one kill, two probable, two possibles and as many as eight damaged.
29 May 1500Z: Dagger
23 May 1650Z: A-4B - either Broadsword or Rapier.

F-4 Phantom did not take part of the conflict. And definitely, the version we are getting is different.

Does this list officially comes from Razbam, or is it just a compilation of the hardware used in the conflict (no puns intended, nice work from Silver_Dragon) ?

In other words is it a road-map for the asset pack ?

While not beeing directly involved in the actual war, british Phantoms had been forward deployed to Ascension to provide air cover for operations there. Phantoms were also deployed to the Falkland islands after the war.

There was a poll some years ago (from Razbam?), if we want to have IA58 Pucará as a module. The communities' answer was "no".
Maybe they should now make the poll again because of the new map?

Ascension is more than 3000km away from the islands. I doubt the map could cover that extent.
