Libya in a 199X-200X Wargame

Postby damoj » Sun 14 Jan 2018 00:24

Libyan Arab Jamahiriya, formally known as the Great Socialist People's Libyan Arab Jamahiriya was the name from 1986 to 2011 of the Libyan state established by Muammar Gaddafi after the overthrow of the Kingdom of Libya in 1969.

The foreign relations of the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya underwent much fluctuation and change. They were marked by severe tension with the West (especially the United States, although relations were normalised in the early 21st century prior to the Libyan Civil War) and by other national policies in the Middle East and Africa, including the Libyan government's financial and military support for numerous paramilitary and rebel groups.

Historically, the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya under Muammar Gaddafi had good relations with the Soviet Union, which provided the Arab nation with weaponry and military advisers throughout the 1970s and 1980s.

-------

While Libya lacks a lot of heavy-hitting equipment, the sheer scale and variety of its imports adds a great deal of flavour to any nation that is paired with Libya. In a generous, "Category A+ 200X-1X" Wargame, a few interesting deliveries from the Russian Federation help increase the nation's capabilities somewhat more.

In honour of NATO's total destruction of the country, NATO reporting names ought to be used where possible for Libyan aircraft.

SA-8 Gecko -- ordered in 1980, presumably 9K33M3 Osa-AKM model or worse.
--------
Little information on whether or not the following missiles had TELARs in Libyan service.
Crotale -- presumably the basic SAM system, not a TELAR. Possible EE-11 TELAR Prototype?
SA-3B Goa -- Quadruple-missile TELARs exist but no immediate record of Libya's use.
SA-6A Gainful -- Kub triple-missle TELARs obviously exist but no immediate record of Libya's use.

Libya under Gaddhafi did not procure a tank heavier than the T-72M1.
Allegedly, in 2009 there were agreements to procure T-90S and upgrade existing T-72s from the Russian Federation.
