Dingor (@lingor_a3)Conflict Overview:
A border war between Angola, a Cuban ally, and South Africa, a British colony, has been raging for more than 20 years with no end in sight. This in combination with the guerilla war being waged in South West Africa by SWAPO (South West Africa People's Organisation) has torn the region apart.
Angola has been harbouring SWAPO training camps and training the insurgents so in recent years the war has shifted to raids being launched into Angola to destroy these camps and inhibit the enemy's ability to wage war. Massive Soviet era arms and equipment have been pouring into Angola from Cuban sources as well as Cuban 'peacekeeping' forces to ensure the survival of this communist stronghold.Recent Events:
Aerial reconnaissance has detected a SWAPO camp in the Cassinga region of Angola that appears to be building forces judging from the amount of supplies being flown in from the nearby airfield. The only known Cuban force in the area is in the town of Maruko who are hosted as a training force for the SWAPO insurgents. Cuban forces have taken over the airfield and are occupying a portion of the city.
TWC Platoon is being airdropped into the region in the first major air operation for the british since the Suez in order to eliminate the camp and destroy strategic targets in the area.
Note that point Moscow has shown defensive positions being prepared indicating they have spotted the planes and suspect we are coming. Prepare for a spirited defence.Objectives:
1. Destroy the SWAPO Training camp at Target Moscow.
2. Eliminate forces and aircraft at the airfield nearby to prevent further supplies being flown in.
