BushWar is set in the 70's and 80's. During that time
PLAN guerrillas, Fapla and the Cuban Army were
fighting against UNITA, the FNLA and the South African
Defence Force for the control of Angola and the
independance of Namibia. Most of the battles took
place in southern Angola with a few smaller ones
taking place in northern Namibia. The bush is very different from the jungle of Battlefield Vietnam or from maps set in the desert. Another reason for BushWar being popular could be the South African Weapons and Vehicles. Due to Apartheid sanctions were imposed upon South Africa and so they had to develop a lot of military equipment themselves,
a lot of their equipment is unique and cannot be found in other mods or games. In addition to all the Battlefield Vietnam features which have been modyfied for BushWar, our mod features a flamethrower, exploding barrels and destroyable trees.
