About The War In Angola
 
Training Base Mpupa

On 15 September 1975, Commandant Breytenbach started training at Mpupa with four instructors. There were 250 men, and as planned, divided into a mortar platoon, a machine gun platoon and three rifle platoons. This group included trained and half-trained FNLA-supporters, ex-flechas and Portuguese. They were underfed and poorly equipped with 15 rifles of which only two were serviceable. They were therefore completely dependent on the RSA for weapons, ammunition and general equipment.
