Thank you for your comments and glad you liked it. Definitely put a lot of work into those orbats to make them as believable as possible - too some digging to get good info on the Ugandans and Rwandans.

Wanted to make them more detailed than the typical orbats so that players and GM's could get a real sense of what the units actually had - especially considering the wide variety of equipment that would be present in Africa - and for the US units especially showing how they are having to make do and improvise and depend on what they can find and repair in many cases.

Thats something I didnt consider - and that might make a good mini-module or adventure

However things did get way out of hand in Kenya

"Poaching of Kenya’s wildlife, already endemic before the war, has risen to new heights as the death of tourism and reduced agricultural output
has driven people to attack the once protected native species in Kenya’s wildlife parks. The Kenyan government has done what it can by
deploying the few remaining units from the Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) to intercept armed criminals in the game parks and stop livestock thefts as much as they can. But they are clearly outmatched by the sheer number of
incidents."

After seeing a post on the Rhodesian Cobra SMG I started looking at the vehicles and weapons of the Rhodesian Bush War and considering doing an update adding vehicles to the sourcebook covering some of those very unique vehicles since most of them were passed onto the Zimbabwean Army - and would have served with their forces in the Congo War - and thus possibly be encountered by characters who venture into the Congo or Zimbabwe - vehicles like the MAP45 and MAP75 or the Crocodile

As an item of interest, at the end of the war, a small number of those locally made mine-protected vehicles were driven to South Africa by their crews. A number of military units quit Rhodesia and offered themselves and all their gear to the South African government and those particular vehicles added to the knowledge of mine protection for South African military vehicles.

But as for the vehicles... along with the MAP45, MAP75 and Crocodile, you could also include the MPCV (Mine Protected Combat Vehicle), basically like the MAP series but based on a Unimog chassis and equiped & used as an IFV. Probably made as a Rhodesian version of the UR-416 APCs they had in service at the time. You could also include the Ferret Scout Cars the Rhodies had and if you really wanted a "What the hell is that?" vehicle, you could have the Leopard Security Vehicle or even the one and only example of the Bullet TCV.
