A Rough Guide to the Kingdom of Bagombo
A bit of background fluff for the Bagombo AK47 army....
In recent years, Bagombo has developed as one of the wealthiest nations in Africa primarily due to the discovery of extrensive oil and natural gas reserves in Lake Bagombo. In addition, the kingdom has become a lucrative tax haven and offshore banking facility for the world's wealthiest investors. The revenue from these activities has been used to develop a thriving safari based tourist industry and has provided a source of finance for the equipment of the Bagomban armed forces.
The Bagomban infantry are well equipped with G3 and FN FAL assault rifles, LAWS light anti-tank launchers and blowpipe AAA missiles for self defence. A heavy weapons platoon of mortars, heavy machine guns and recoilless rifles is also available for fire support.
In addition, the presence of British military advisors in a combat role is documented, although not officially acknowledged by either government. The use of professional troops and pilots enables the R.U.B.A.R.R.B. to call in air support from Gazelle helicopter gunships in a ground attack role. There is also evidence of heliborne troop insertions by Puma transport helicopters.
