Graviteam Tactic's The Angolan Civil War series just got an additional DLC that features the push of the 21st FAPLA (People's Armed Forces of Liberation of Angola) Motorized Rifle Brigade towards the Lomba River.
|An Angolan T-34-85 tank confidently enters the fray.|
With a total of 2 operations, this DLC promises to be a challenge for the player taking the role of the SADF (South African Defence Force). The massive offensive of the Angolans shows from the very onset of the operation. So, be advised, the odds are against the South Africans/UNITA in the very beginning.
This DLC introduces the following tools of war:
- The Vektor R4 assault rifle
- The ATGM Ratel ZT3
- The Casspir APC
The ATGM Ratel ZT3 brings plenty of anti-armor relief for the SADF. The ZT3 ATGM missiles are laser guided and have a relatively long range. This allows for some standoff fire, the only caveat is that the target acquisition system in the Ratel is sort of limited range-wise.
|A ZT3 launch from a Ratel IFV. The smoke trail of the missile is very conspicuous.|
|These South African forward observers were not that happy to hear the sound of a missile flying over their heads.|
|The missile reaches its target. Despite the hit in the rear, the T-34-85 threaded away from this encounter.|
|Another missile launch. The relatively flat terrain makes the use of this weapon a true asset.|
|Preparing an anti-tank ambush. The high mobility of the Ratels is crucial for shoot and scoot tactics.|
