Default Canon Mexican Locations.

Red Star Star Lone Star has 6600 Mexican soldiers in Texas (fighting among 4 factions).

City of Angels has 1350 soldiers.

Is there more information I am missing?

edit: Is it just me or does the equipment for the Mexican Army from City of Angels not make sense. It looks like the remains of a Soviet MRR. I have not opened that module in over a decade, now I remember why.

It doesn't. That module and Eastern Source Book were both written by an absolutely horrible author. I can't believe the GDW people let both of them pass, and for this guy to continue to make the same garbage.

There 'might' be more in the Challenge article about the Mexicans. I can't remember offhand.

Correct. In one of the early Challenge mags, issue 27 - "The Mexican Army: 1998 - 2000". Are we allowed to post just that article from the issue Kato or would that not be cool?

Oh yeah, I see what you mean. Very general regional locations only.

There is some good info on Mexican forces in Satellite Down. Of course it is pretty localised (Baja California) in its scope.

Every little bit helps.

I've got 5 days until my oilfield processing is done due to a Google limitation on how often you can search for lat/long locations (once every 1.7 seconds) so I figured I would finish up the canon units. I had completely forgotten about the Cuban unit on Grenada.

If only they'd put the right graphic on the right description!
