I will follow his orders and the people of the nation and the troops of the NDF can rest assured that we will do the right thing.”
It’s a testament to the Bongolesian People of their courage in the face of the Anti-Govt, hoodlums and thugs. But have no fear fair folks! Our beloved boys in green under their new general will soon use their new tanks and other cool stuff that runs and shoots and will show the enemy a newer sharper end of the pain stick!
He’ll get jiggy at any time…New National Defense Commander Col. Lok’n Lode answers a couple of questions and makes a statement.
(Sudekia): Unconfirmed word is that the NDF is testing newer tanks in addition to the ones that they have recently received.
With the creation of 3rd and 4th Bongolesian Armored, equipped with the trusty T55 Main Battle Tanks, there is discussion of the possibility of the expansion of the Presidential Guards armor force also.
In doing so, International Arms Dealers from Russia have recently arrived and unloaded two T72 Tanks as display and demo vehicles.
Although the tanks are a bit pricey, and the determination of sales is still underway, there is a chance that one day soon, the people of Bongolesia will see new(er) tanks in the Presidential Guard.
