20mm African Rebel Platoon

These guys are a generic African Platoon and they'll be putting in service as ZANLA/ZIPRA/FRELIMO for the Rhodesian Bush War and also SWAPO for the South African Border War. I've went for a fairly standard organisation 3 squads of 8 fighters, a platoon HQ and a couple of support elements. I wanted a random, though uniform look, so there's a mixture of green and navy uniforms as well as an occasional piece of camo. The figures are all Liberation apart from a single Mutineer RPG gunner.

Support, AGS-17 and a ZPU1

Casualties

There's more stuff to come including vehicles, I've been trying to get my hands on an S-Model BRDM2 without much luck, if anyone has a spare in their stash let me know!
