obat26 Afghanistan
 
Unit 412 (Cavalry Scouts) makes airplane sounds while traveling and should be adjusted from 7 to 17.

Looks like you'll have to update the 2022 OOB and "flip" Afghanistan back to the Taliban Flag at this rate. :doh:

Afghanistan is called "The Graveyard of Empires" for a reason! Genghis Khan, Alexander the Great, Great Britain (3 or 4 times), USSR, USA have all tried and failed to change the place... Constant war seems to be the norm there :(

And it's done. Afghan President has fled the country. :shock:

Taliban are in Kabul now, rumors have skirmishes happening between them and UK Paras who are trying to exfiltrate UK nationals at the airport. :confused:

Hamid Karzai apparently is going to be part of a "transitional council" that will hand over power to the Taliban. :confused:

....and another 20 years of experience not to mention a resilience that is second to none. We may be shortchanging them for base Morale level in the game....

That area has been a nasty place for outsiders to try to operate since Alexander the Great's time and likely before.

The morale and rally may need a check for the taliban formations.

The "government" (ANA and etc) is likely set low enough, any "central government" of Afghanistan never seems to be worth much militarily - see how they folded recently after 20 odd years of training and suppply from the Western foeces. The governemnt forces were not much help to the Soviets when they had thier turn in the country, either.

The place is best left to itself and if any organisation causes bother that is based there then a quick in and out to smash the bases in future is all that should be contemplated if something more than cruise missile or B52 strikes is needed.

The Taliban stopped the poppy planting last time they were in control, so hopefully they will do that again, at least.

Afghanistan is the Balkans+++...
