  • Rhodesians in Afganistan

    Since it seems to be an epidemic at the moment ....

    in 1979 America cuts a Deal with the White Minority Govt in Rhodesia, they'll officially acknowledge them, form a military alliance with them and force their allies to open up trade in exchange for access to their mineral riches and unhesitating co-operation in future conflicts them. Or something like that.

    along comes 2001, and America decides that instead of committing her own troops, she will commit (the cryogenically frozen, now re-thawed) the Rhodesian armed forces to take care of A-stan, while America supplies logistical support.

    The Rhodies have complete freedom to act as they choose, and have to Capture Osama, destroy the Mujhiadeen and establish a democratic regime in A-stan. They have the same amount of Material available to the Yanks, but manpower wise they have the forces they did in 1973 (say).

    What Happens?

    (P.S. The Rhodies have a few Zulus and an old captured IS-2)

    Question: how are the Rhodesian going to win the hearts and minds of the people in A-stan.

    Their Army in 1979 was 11,000 regulars and 40,000 reservists 1/3 of the American presence today. Their army units though were first rate.

    I guess as along they are not viewed as an occupying force they have a chance of winning.

        US army units are first rate as well with drastically more air support.

        Aint looking like anything more than a bloodbath, and then civil insurrection at home if they sent anything more than 20% of their reserve.
