Southwest Africa/Angola Links: contributed by RMD
Unofficial SADF This is to the unofficial SADF webpage, and I think the most useful place to start
War in Angola Johan Schoeman's War In Angola In Miniature Page
Bush War The South Africa Bush War Page
Modelling the Ratel ICV
Buffel & Bulldog APCs A Painting Guide
'Bad Guys' Personal Accounts From the SADF
The Battle of Cassinga 1978 A superb dissertation on the controversial South African airborne operation, written by a serving SANDF general and drawn mainly from primary sources.

Other Modern Links
Urban Operations Journal A site which discusses the problems and techniques of modern operations in cities.
Israeli Weapons A site which has a lot of data on Israeli tanks and weapons.
Armoured Acorn RMD says this is a FANTASTIC painting/modelling resource - literally hundreds of colour plates of mainly Canadian vehicles, but also of other nations, from WW2 and post-war, including lots of plates of Canada's 4th Mechanised Brigade in NATO.
Global Security This is an excellent site packed with information for the modern gamer including technical specifications. Lots of other useful information and news as well. The technical information will be extremely useful for possible future moderns cards for those interested in designing such things.
Scandanavian Armor A site dedicated to the armored forces of Scandanavia (Norway, Sweden, Denmark).
Greek Military This site is dedicated to the modern forces of Greece and Cyprus, with some 20th century history as well.
