80s Tanoa [Global Mobilization Ver.]

Description:
DISCLAIMER: THIS MOD REQUIRES THE "GLOBAL MOBILIZATION" CDLC AND IS IN WIP STATUS.

Tanoa, 198X

Government forces wage a bloody civil war against a recently established insurgent faction fighting for the collectivisation of important Tanoan industries amidst a general economic depression.

The so-called „Revolutionary Forces of the Horizon Islands“ (RFHI) have, in the past few weeks, hit local institutions and international companies on Tanoa with bombings and kidnappings in order to destabilize the authoritan government. RHFI is rumored to have strong ties to local organized crime and is especially active on the islands of the Tanoan archipelago. Their arms and equipment are allegedly procured from the black market, no external backing is supposed to exist. While RFHI publicly displays a "communist" ideology, their true intentions are up for debate.

The Horizon Island’s geopolitical situation is dire: diplomatic relations to NATO-aligned allies (especially France as former colonial ruler) are deteriorating after several past coup-attempts (one successful) by the armed forces. The newly appointed government is underhandedly seeking new allies within the Soviet Union and states of the eastern bloc (including the GDR and China), mainly to procure weapons for their power-hungry military. While the Horizon Islands are certainly not a socialist state in alignment to Soviet doctrine, the eastern bloc is happy to oblige in exchange for foreign currency.

Thus, the „Horizon Islands Army“ (HIA) - in addition to their existing western armament - has recently been equipped with eastern vehicles and weapons that the West was unwilling to openly provide and is looking to exterminate the internal threat of RFHI with impunity and no mercy towards civilian "collaborators".

Involvement in human rights violations has been reported for both parties.

Rumors of secret NATO-backed involvement on the side of HIA against a) RFHI and b) a further shift to the East continue to persist.

This mod adds two factions with equipment appropriate to the era (1980s).
1) Horizon Islands Army - Independent
2) Revolutionary Forces of the Horizon Islands - OPFOR
