The Jungle

The jungle is only one of the enemies.

There are men out here someplace, who seek to do us harm.

So we go forward to search for them.

Under the leadership of our general.

Submachine guns are very useful in the jungle.

Don't be distracted by the beautiful flowers.

One way to observe is with a sniper scope.

At normal view the camp looks far away.

And the troops look too small to shoot.

But with the scope they look very close.

It's a good thing the observer is friendly.

The Enemy Could Be Near

Is the enemy out there?

Do you hear them?

Or is that a friendly soldier?

At the base, much of the jungle has been cut back so there is a clear fire area.

One the plantation was neat rows but after a few years of neglect the jungle is moving in.

Keep your weapons at the ready, the enemy could be very near.

Observation in the Jungle

Every shade of green.

How many troops do you see?

How many in this photo?

There are at least three in this picture.

The key is to move slowly, and listen as much as you look.

The Jungle and the Uniform

The troops wear uniforms that are slightly different colors.

Depending on the age of the uniform, how much it's been exposed to sun, and how much it has been washed can really change the color.

The General, of course, is wearing a different uniform, he does not mind looking different or exposing himself to snipers.

The jungle is every shade of green.

And so there is a place for every uniform shade as well.

Advance into the Plantation

The jungle is thick.

Exotic orchids in purple sprout up like weeds.

The plantation has not been worked in a while and is overgrown.

The troops can barely move.

Its' almost impenetrable, the enemy could be anywhere.

Weapons at the ready the troops advance slowly.

Headquarters Defense

Other troops defending the headquarters.

The defensive position is roughly a circle.

With troops in place along the barriers.

The command tent in the center.

Motor pool off to one side near the entrance.

One edge is very close to the plantation.

Banana Plantation Attack

The troops have set up a base just outside the plantation.

A small defensive perimeter for the command post.

Unit mascot is a big blue dog.

The generals in tan uniform have placed their plan in operation and now all they can do is wait.

 There are also a few left behind  to guard the perimeter.

Here they use a sniper rifle to scan for the enemy.

Soviet Vehicles

Vast numbers of Soviet equipment.



More tanks.

Note the slight color variation of these vehicles.

While most are the same, some are a little darker and some a little lighter.

Just like real military vehicles.
