Overall it looks like a good outcome for SA industry.

Watch out though! Chinese troops once in country, will be difficult to shift, and make them play a role in the Peacekeeping, for pity's sake...a role comensurate with their deployment levels.

Or is this just propaganda to convince all and sundry what a marvellous force of people the SA Army are?
The only soviet weapon the regualer force use is the RPG7. Speciol Forces use Soviet and Chinese weaponry.


Talking about our products? Well the built from the ground up for use in hot, dry, Dusty terrian. They will put Soviet crap to sham.

The parad is pure propergander. It arms forces day parad. I dont think you get a non propergander parad on arms forces day.

We failed here, from what I understand. I have heard no trumpetting from our media over a "mine proof" boot being issued.

Does south Africa consider this something they could design and build?

There was probaly some work in the past. Nothing now. Any case our enemy used to jurry rig AT minez for AP purpose.

There was never really dutch or German influnce in the SA army. One could say there is in doctrine with the focus on mobility with simlare focus on it to what early WW2 germany had. But tradstions are British.

China has no plans for a base in South Africa. They may set up in nambia.

Thankyou Andrew...I appreciate your commnets.

One thing positive I will say about the SA military is their willingness to get a job done without costing too many casualties.

South arfrican soldiers and officers also would seem to be untainted in European and North african service by atrocity.

Australian military willingly served alongside south African soldiers. Even their pilots had good record, and like ours, put them in second rate aircraft and they will try to fly those designs to their limit.
