Looking at a 1974 test buy on 3500 points, then the Moxambiqans bought a whole 12 T34-85 in amongst a sea of grunts, with a few ZSU-57-2 as well.

If that is too much armourfor you, then back up a copy of the OOB and replace the SPAAA platoon and tank platoon with say a rifle platoon each?

(The Rhodesian infantry had 3 energa AT rifle grenades each team, they have 106mm jeeps, the maps are close country and so it should not be too difficult to deal with the old WW2 surplus tanks, IMHO. Especially 78 onwards when you have RPG-7s availabe)

If you don't follow advice given & use Red it will play very differently South Africa is one of the most experienced sides in Africa Red has poor experience.
If you want a none tank opponent for Rhodesia with experience around 70 like SA go for.
Ethiopia or Eretria they are always fighting & have few or no tanks if I remember correctly in the 70s or the UN.

Follow the above advice then try those nations.
However it is quite simple if your not confident copy the whole MBT folder to another one.
Create a shortcut & rename it backup or whatever.
Use this copy to try modifying so your original install is safe.
Misc tab > turn Show ID Numbers ON #
Utilities tab > Mobhack OOB editor > Formations
Select the correct OOB > Press open & swap the tank ones for something different.
Save any changes after you make them.

# You can turn it off after this just shows the ID number of the formation/units.
So if the tank formation is ID 20 you just scroll to ID 20 & change it.
its fairly straight forward & if yo cannot figure it out just delete the backup installation.

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 )

Are you playing a generated battle or a campaign? If it's a generated battle the solution is to manually buy for the AI but let it deploy. Yes, you will know exactly what you are up against but you won't know where it will be.

Can you give us some more detail on this African campaign...?

I'm thinking number of build points, map size, length etc...

If you are talking about the fighting after Eritrean independence there definitely were tanks involved. There were also modern jets, at least on the Ethiopian side. Both countries spent a great deal of money on modern equipment.

After a protracted guerilla war against various Ethiopian governments, Eritrea officially became independent in 1993 under the leadership of the Eritrean People's Liberation Front. The war between independent Eritrea and Ethiopia began in 1998. There are various reasons war broke out, but I'm inclined to think it was very much a personal issue between the Eritrean and Ethiopian leaders.
