Range 17 "AK47 Republic"

Modern Africa and The Lebanon

Range 17 Generic Modern African wars 1960-1985 There is a set of rules from RFCM. ( "AK47 Republic") This range covers generic type armies and not named states or large armoured battles. In order to keep the descriptions of the figures and models clear and concise the letter M,R and P will be used . The Letter M indicates the figures are suitable for Militia/poor quality troops and will thus have poorer equipment and dress. R represents regular troops in the sense that they are full time soldiers, not that they are necessarily very good soldiers. They will have some uniformity and heavier weapons. p represents Professional troops such as south African army or mercenaries. Thus the pack  labelled M AK47 Beret contains Militia armed with AK 47s  and wearing berets as a distinguishing feature.

Rules
AK47 re-loaded(2009 Version) available on the Rules page.   These are very good rules. Some of the mechanisms will be copied we are sure!    Click Here for rules page

Militia
These troops are the backbone of the African armies. They  are bareheaded and carry a limited amount of ammo and supplies. They expect to be supplied on a daily basis. They expect  to fight in built up areas where they can seek cover and loot. Militia take on the habits of an armed mob when in combat. Militia will usually withdraw when faced with regular soldiers. They will evaporate if faced with professional soldiers. Militia will often wear bright or inappropriate clothing.

Regulars
These are full time soldiers. They supplement their erratic pay by setting up road blocks. These troops will fight well if circumstances are favourable. They will obey their officers and will use proper tactics. regulars might well have coloured hats or armbands for identification. Camouflage combat uniforms are common.  The helmeted figures will just fine for Cubans, Syrians and the like. They can also be mixed in with beret types as regulars.

Humvees  
The Humvee (or hummer) was a very common and iconic vehicle is use by the US. The PP humvees come in two classes. The first is the USMC version with deep wading exhaust and air intake. The other is the army type without the deep wading gear.   The weapon mounts can be interchanged. These are in standard infantry priced packs.  Because of this you can now buy separate packs of weapon mounts in order to saving buying the same vehicle over and over.
