Here's one from 2016. I'll have to update when I have the time.

If all it is is red it should be ok for South African in the 70's and 80's I don't general use red much

Do you mean playing as South Africa, or playing as guerillas operating against South Africa? I have no desire to play as South Africa or Rhodesia in the 1970s.

I have played around with creating a battle between African forces by using the "captured" mechanism. A big thank you to the person who suggested this. It makes this great game even more flexible.

When doing Rhodesia battles in the 1970s increase the points by causing casualties and decrease the victory hex points. Missions were (for the guerrillas, destroying bridges, mining roads and killing farmers and government troops) and (for the government troops, clearing roads, protecting farmers, saving bridges and killing guerrillas.)

There are a couple of good books about the Somalia-Ethiopia conflict(s), by either Ethiopian or Somali scholars, I forget which. One of them provides rather good information on Cuban involvement. I will have to dig around and see if I can recall the names of those books.

When researching African conflicts I tend to rely on sources produced by African scholars. With a very few exceptions.

Yes I want to play Rhodesia or South Africa in the 70's. How is that any different from playing Germany or Japan in WW2? Rhodesia is an interesting side to play, their forces are generally weak and poorly equipped. They make up for that with good moral and experience.

Okay now I am completely confused both South Africa & Rhodesia have OOB's Rhodesia ends in 1980 as it ceased to exist but that covers your time frame. So why are you looking at Red when you have the correct OOB's?

If your saying South Africa buys to much armour either set them to human purchase & buy what you want for the AI.
or
Try modifying South African OOB removing most armour formations & see if that works. Need to test never tried.
The game should have a backup OOB to restore the original but make a copy before modifying if you like.

No If I choose Rhodesia all the options to fight have to many tanks. The Rhodesian forces don't really have good anti tank equipment. As South Africa I have tanks so that's ok.

I prefer to play either Rhodesia or South Africa. Though with the new orbit for the game I may choose to fight them from Red )
