FYI for the Australian members of the board I forgot to mention that the Sourcebook also has an Australian unit in it -

A Company, 6th Battalion, The Royal Australian Regiment - survivors of 2 companies of infantry that had been deployed to Ceylon on a UN peacekeeping mission in 1995 and basically were abandoned there when the war heated up. They left in 1999 on some commandeered sailing dhows and got picked up by a USN ship and brought to Mombasa.

An example of what you can do with the East African Sourcebook pulled from today's news - would work easily with French characters (special forces or DSGE)

Islamist suspect's home
Published April 27, 2017 Fox News
Facebook Twitter Email Print
A man suspected of links to radical Islam and of glorifying terrorism shot two police officers on the French island of Reunion during an arrest Thursday -- and police found bomb-making materials at his home, officials said.

Officers detained the unnamed suspect and his mother. Police also found weapons in his apartment in the town of Saint Benoit de la Reunion, according to the Interior Ministry.

The two officers, from a special national police intervention force, were hospitalized but were expected to survive. The man was wanted for "glorifying terrorism," the ministry said in a statement, without elaborating. The shooting came just a week after a police officer was killed in Paris in an attack claimed by the Islamic State terror group.

Antiterrorism prosecutors have taken over the investigation because the man was suspected of links to radical Islam, Paris prosecutor's office spokeswoman Agnes Thibault-Lecuivre told The Associated Press. The suspect, in his 20s, opened fire with a shotgun as a special police squad arrived to raid his home, the BBC reported.

The man appeared to be acting alone, according to a local Reunion official who was not authorized to be publicly named.

France is under a state of emergency after multiple Islamic extremist attacks. Extremists have notably targeted French security forces, seen as representing the reviled state.

One of France's biggest overseas territories and located east of Madagascar, Reunion is an ethnically diverse island with a mix of religions at the crossroads of historic sea trading routes between Africa, Asia and the Arab world.

FYI for those who say there isnt much of a market out there for Twilight 2000 - seen at least one blog who literally said there are probably less than 10 active campaigns going which is one hell of an understatement - 190 sold in less than two months - and for those who have bought it who are here on the forum I want to thank you very much - and I am definitely working on new material

you are very welcome - always glad to hear that what I released brought back people to a game that I always loved - and one I thought myself had died out a long time ago until I happened upon this forum a few weeks after I found four Twilight 2000 books for sale at a local used bookstore
