DIY Commando Mortar in Angola

Executive Outcomes was light years ahead of it’s time.  Founded by Eeben Barlow, EO conducted operations against UNITA rebels in Angola, RUF butchers in Sierra Leone, and even mounted a successful, if little known, hostage rescue mission in Indonesia.  Sadly, South African, British, and American intelligence agencies didn’t take too kindly to EO successfully pulling off combat operations on a shoe string budget.  No, they preferred that their own Private Military Companies or UN Proxies failed at the same job for twenty times the cost!
