Devon Wargames Group - South African Border War - Battle of Cuito Cuanavale,
The game was played using SADF and FAPLA & Cubans in 15mm, to "Cold war Commander" rules. These are fast play rules, with an emphasis on command and control. Each vehicle or stand of troops... represents a platoon and commanders give orders to platoons or groups. Whether these orders are acted on, is determined by a die roll that must be under or equal to the commanders rating to succeed.

Daddy's Little Men - Operation Colosseum
Operation Colosseum. Colosseum was a raid on a SWAPO base camp in Angola 300km north of the South-West Africa (Namibia) border. Eight years earlier Cassinga was raided just 30km to the south by a large airborne force. In November 1986 a South African Commando Unit (5 Recce) had to accomplish a similar goal using only a company of men in a column of Casspirs and heavily armed Unimog trucks.
Lead Legionaries - Smokin' Some Cubans: Scenario playtest
6-player hypothetical engagement between an attacking South African and UNITA group with a Cuban/Angolan rearguard force. The skirmish takes place during the Cuito 1987-88 Cuanavale campaign after the SADF/UNITA have repulsed the initial Angolan onslaught, but before the grand finale at Cuito. The South Africans have intervened on behalf of Jonas Savimbi's UNITA rebels to preserve the buffer their territory has created, protecting South West Africa from attacks by SWAPO.
