Here is a very funny story from the Rhodesian War, from 1977 when a group of 40 black “special forces” infiltrated into Rhodesia to launch a night attack on an FAF (Forward Airfield) using mortars, machine-guns, AK47s and RPG7s. They were firing lots of tracer rounds at the FAF and the Rhodesian army base next to it.

In here, I also mention a Rhodesian invention, a type of wire mesh which actually worked, which catches incoming mortar shells and prevents them from damaging our small, but very critically important, air force!
