    Dip 53: African Diplomacy Autumn 2005 Results

    Sorry for the delays, but the game should be back on track now. This turn sees the continuing ascendancy of the Ivory Coast, moving ever closer to a solo. The war with South Africa may have reached a crucial point with the capture of Angola, and South Africa’s woes were further compounded by a timely stab from Ethiopia, who take control of Tanzania (again!). Elsewhere, there was stalemate between Ethiopia and Saudi Arabia, but the Saudi presence in the Horn of Africa looks to be fairly comfortable. There seems to be an uneasy ceasefire in the north between Ivory Coast and Saudi, although this could just be the calm before another storm. Zaire holds on with 1 SC, but the room for manoeuvre is getting limited.

      Grr... no-one told me of any proxy. Bah!

      Anyway, as for the moves, I believe that A Zim-Zam does succeed on the basis that the support from Bot was cut only by the Zambian unit - an invalid cut. Hence, South Africa has no further disband beyond the destroyed Tanzanian unit, and Zaire's Zambian unit is itself destroyed, and South Africa has 7 SCs.

      Do correct me if I'm wrong.

      F Ang retreats to Nam, as on the map.

        You're right, sorry about that. I have ammended the orders, but won't be able to do the map until I get home from work. Not much to change though, so deadline stays the same. South Africa has no further disbands.
