It's 0300 on 1 Feb 1990, and the invasion is set to begin. A large Cuban Liberation Army (CLA) landing force is approaching the island from the west, and so CLA Special Operations Forces (SOF) B Squadron, previously infiltrated into Cuba, have been tasked to destroy a key radar site at Las Tumbas on the Peninsula de Guanahacabibes.
The Commander of CLA SOF's B Squadron, Captain Villanueva.
The radar site is quickly rigged to blow...
And blown, mission success! The force gathers its gear, casualties, and prisoners, then melts back into the jungle.
Casualties:Friendly: ~15 WIA/KIA, 1 HMG Jeep
Enemy: ~20 WIA/KIA, ~15 POW, 1 Armored Car knocked out.
A great opening to the campaign. More to follow.
