Angola Operations

Recreating an airwar conflict in Southern Africa

First mission in a campaign i am creating.


In the period 1977 to 1989 the South African Airforce was involved in operations in former portuguese colony Angola.

This campaign is based around actual missions flown by SAAF pilots. It is described in the book "Vlamgat" by former chief of the SA Airforce (and former F4 Phantom, RAAF veteran)Genl. Dick Lord.

SAAF pilots had to take on superior weaponry far from homebase. Despite the overwhelming disadvantages, the SAAF pilots managed to succeed in their missions, eliminating permanent SAM sites and in later years going in for pinpoint strikes.



Thought out and made by Michiel Erasmus ("pappavis") in dec-2003.
