The Rhodesian African Rifles manned 2 of the 4 main Fire Forces during the Rhodesian Bush War. During this period a Fire Force was made up of aircraft of the Rhodesian Air Force and included x1 K-car (Allouette III with 20mm cannon), x3 G-cars (Allouette III trooping helicopters each holding a stick of 4 askari), x1 Lynx (Reims 337 Cessna push pull ground attack aircraft), and one aging C-47 Dakota known as a Dac by the Rhodesians. The Dac would carry anything from 16 to 20 Rhodesian African Rifles paratroopers. Fire Force combinations could vary but by the end of the war there were Jumbo Fire Forces which were much bigger.
The models I made were presented to the Rhodesian Army Collection at the Bedford RAFA Club in Bedford. It now means that I have to make another Fire Force to recreate the contacts of the Rhodesian African Rifles superbly supported by the RhAF.
