Argentine F9F Panther lay destroyed after being shot up by Argentine Shermans during the Azules vs Colorados infighting, 1962.

The Azules vs Colorados (Blues vs Reds) was a small scale armed conflict between slightly leaning Peronist Army and Air Force officers and generals and the anti-Peronist Navy officers. The Army and Air Force (Blue) officers wanted to include the Peronists in the resolution of social conflicts (Peronism was banned after Perón fled the country following the "Revolución Libertadora" in 1955). Meanwhile, the Navy (Red) was heavily anti-Peronist as they were the ones responsibles for the Bombing of Plaza de Mayo in June 1955, leaving 300 civilians dead, during the "first" government of Juan Domingo Perón.

The fighting was rather sporadic, with several skirmishes between the two forces. At the end, the Reds, the Navy, insurgents were defeated and they lost power after the 1963 National Elections.

SM U-5 of the K.u.K. Kriegsmarine (Austro-Hungarian navy). Under the command of Georg Ritter von Trapp (yes, that von Trapp), she sank the French armoured cruiser Léon Gambetta on April 27th 1915.

This isn't a "conflict," but instead a US police action from 1947 in Texas.

I thought it was cool because of the M3 Scout Car :)
