I've written a new 'cold war' scenario and i'm wondering who would be up for playing it.
The location: South African Border
The year: 1983
The Situation: South Africa, tired of countless cross border raids by the DDR trained SWAPO has declared war on Namibia. The Warsaw Pact tied up in afghanistan and Europe sends a limited re-enforcement to the NVA 'advisors' to the SWAPO and retaliates.
South Africa now, finding it has bitten off more than it can chew calls to NATO for aid but NATO declines officially - however hundreds of old soldiers from Europe gather together to form the 'Wild Geese', an international mercenary force of men too old or too crazy for the regular army but dedicated to stopping the communists.
SWAPO - rag tag African mercenaries with mainly OD or soviet kit and weaponry, the odd G3 but not obviosy brit stuff.
DDR Expeditionary force - Any East German Uniform.
South African Defence Forces - plain sand/tan/olive kit and South african or m56 webbing
Wild Geese - Brit DPM and red berets, Uzis, SLRs and M16s!
It would be a fairly 'stand up' fight to secure border check points but with some initial secret missions to rescue politicians, assasinate priests/rebel leaders etc.
I'm thinking Eversely would be ideal if we cant get somewhere more 'jungle' like. it would *have* to be a 'height of summer' game.
What do you reckon?
Be nice game to put the DDR in the spotlight and allow a mixed NATO force and Josh has tons of SADF kit for loan. Russian players can easily be SWAPO as can US players if they own plain ODS like nam fatigues?
