    Points to a particular unit.

    But I know one thing that never dies,
    the glory of the great dead.

    And yes, they do have some interesting toys in their inventory.
    Well there are no Jackalberry trees on the Cape West coast so must be the one near a Kruger gate with the same name.

    Soft skinned vehicles. When are the lads going to be properly equipped?
    Where are the Ratels?
    Stolen?
    Sold?
    It's disgusting that the soldiers have to go in as a peace keeping force without having the best equipment.

    A lot like the under folder AK. Iconic and maybe useful in a vehicle but as a fighting rifle in 2022 no way.

    These pictures are from late July to early August 2021 when the special forces were initially flown in by C130, hence the lightweight vehicles.
    Since then Armored carriers arrived together with the regular troops.

    The SANDF and SAAF are very underfunded.
    SAAF only has 2 airworthy C130 out of 9 airframes from budget cuts and 1 accident
