If HMS Eagle is still around in 1982, as per her condition when decommissioned ( but before catapults and arrestor wires were trashed when she was laid up), how would she get on against the Argentinean air force? With 12 FAW2 Sea Vixens and 14 Buccaneers, AEW gannets and Sea Kings.
In this scenario Hermes and Bulwark sail with the task force as commando carriers only carrying helicopters. -
HMS Ark Royal IV ( Bless her) is in refit with her boilers in bits, so can't be ready in time.
No SHARS, only FAW2's as organic airsupport.
Also as an aside, HMS Tiger ( 6" cruiser) sails with the taskforce - great for gunfire support, but how would she get on on a 1:1 with the General Belgrano? 1 x 2 6" ( although automatic loading) against 15 × 6"/47 cal (152 mm)- manually loaded? If Tiger's 6" jams, she is in big trouble, also the larger rear hanger and flight deck must be a 6" shell magnet ( or would they go straight through the thin shell plating?)
