Okay guys.

A lot of people have been waiting a long time for this... And after some hard work and very long hours, the Bushwars Mod team is happy to announce:

The public release of our South African Defence Force and SWAPO soldier packs!

QUOTE(Obmar)
In 1965 the first infiltration by armed insurgents of PLAN (People's Liberation Army of Namibia) took place over the border of Southern Angola/Ovamboland, and set in motion what was to become a war lasting 23 years and ultimately involving not only Namibians and South Africans, but also Angolans, Cubans, Russians and Americans.

The SADF would bring new weapons into service, improve transport in the form of mine-protected vehicles, and establish new units of specialist forces which included Bushman trackers, cavalry units and elite units such as the "Recces" and "Pathfinders". Black units were also formed and few could have foreseen at that time that the remnants of the FNLA force which failed so badly at Luanda would later, under the leadership of the renowned Col. Jan Breytenbach, form one of the most feared units of the entire war - "32 Battalion", also known as the "Buffalo Battalion". The standard of training of the Angolan Army also improved significantly under the influence of the Cubans, however, and they provided a haven on the Angolan side of the border for SWAPO.

External or cross-border operations by the SADF against both SWAPO and FAPLA became commonplace. Almost every year saw a new major operation take place, up till the last days of the war which ended in 1989.

We are pleased to release the first batch of soldier units. A big thank you to ASZ and CimaleX for the modification and textures and the months of work put into the soldier models. Falcon1 applied the final touches to the SADF soldier pack. Our team member SAAF developed a script for the SADF Mortar Platoon which enables them to pack and carry the M3 mortar and place the mortar for fire support missions. We have tried to keep the soldiers as realistic as possible and FALCON1 did everything possible to keep them authentic with the pat67 and pat82 webbing.



The pack includes a variety of soldiers from a SADF Colonel to a crew member. All the weapons are from our custom weapons pack.



The M3 81mm mortar was made with the SADF troop pack in mind. After suggestions and extensive testing by Ou Matroos, SAAF modified and implemented the Real Artillery Mod scripts by Jones. This gives the mortar platoon a realistic capability of firing indirect rounds during game fire missions.




More hard work by ASZ and CimaleX. This time its the SWAPO/PLAN soldier pack.

The People's Liberation Army of Namibia (PLAN), SWAPO's military wing. In 1966, the South-West Africa People's Organisation (SWAPO) began guerrilla attacks on South Africa, infiltrating the territory from bases in Zambia. After Angola became independent in 1975, SWAPO established bases in the southern part of the country. Hostilities intensified over the years, especially in Ovamboland. SWAPO tactics followed that of the Warsaw Pact armies during the cold war, as members were trained in Russia, East Germany, Tanzania (under Eastern Block command), etc. Armed groups ranging from a handful to several hundred, armed with light weapons such as AK 47's, MG's, RPG 7's, mines, etc. operated from SWAPO bases deep inside Angola. These groups infiltrated SWA during the rainy season (due to scarcity of water in the semi-desert region), and conducted terror activities against the SADF and local population. Terror activities included ambushes, mining of roads, terrorising local population supporting the SADF, recruiting new Plan members (sometimes forcefully), etc. SWAPO/PLAN suffered about 11400 casualties during the Bush War 1966-1989.

Soldiers wear variations of the different cammo schemes, the most common one being the East German "Rice Pattern" . All weapons are from our custom weapons pack.

Next week we will add the FAPLA, 32 Battalion and SADF Parachute Brigades commonly referred to as the "Parabats". The Ovamboland island is also near completion. So we are working towards a mini-mod teaser release with missions by CimaleX before ArmAII is released.

Outstanding work! I love this conflict and these addons have been a blast to use. The Tonal island pack was my favorite addon for Flashpoint and I have high hopes for Bush Wars to do the same for Arma. Now all we need is an island and we can start making basic missions... worship.gif
