How advanced attack helicopters and anti-tank missiles are used in covert operations
596 pages in paperback
Very few Westerners understand how far advanced South Africa was and still is in military technology. For example, the entire US MRAP vehicle program is based on the 1975 South African technology. The list is endless.
In Code Name Alphabet 32, I introduce the reader to yet another South African miracle of technology, the air-to-ground & surface-to-surface Mokopa anti-tank missile. The Mokopa outperforms the better-known US Hellfire in every possible way which is described in this book - it is faster, more accurate, penetrates 50% more armour and can be fitted with a variety of warheads making it an outstanding force multiplier. This missile is sold to the enemies of NATO and the US.
Historically, it was created when the US, under Bill Clinton, refused to sell the Hellfire to South Africa. I take you through the tactical doctrine of firing a Mokopa in real-world conditions, demonstrating how this is done.
We also look at the surgical strike capability, something that NATO claims to have but doesn’t. Intelligence reports show us that US drone strikes will miss their intended targets 96.5% of the time. This is the most pathetic counter-terrorism record in the history of warfare. And it is so because of a lack of intelligence in what to attack. The result? Suicide bombs exploding in Western cities and destabilised countries creating even more terrorists. Yet, terrorists can be taken out by spies and Special Forces if you know where they are.
In Code Name Alphabet 32, I show how such strikes should be done. In the background, although not the main story, we look at date rape as the same drugs are frequently used during espionage. We look at the symptoms, the treatment and general behaviour of the victim over a period of days so that you can recognise what is happening and save the poor victim from rape and worse.
I further take a hard look at Allied war crimes during World War Two. A thoroughly distasteful research effort and came across the disgusting administrative method used by the UN today to cover for child & other sexual abuse by UN soldiers wherever they are to be found. To be sure, that method is disclosed in this book and others. It is shocking.
Spymaster extraordinaire, Angelique Dawson and her team are in the Lesotho Highlands, an independent former British Colony situated in the Maluti Mountains, surrounded by South Africa.
They are operating in snowy, blizzard winter conditions. She is investigating if the famous Katse Dam can be sabotaged by terrorists (it can be) as well as if the worrying rumours of a new cadre of terrorist leaders being trained by Zimbabwean CIO affiliates to form a new terrorist group based on ethnic lines to destabilise the new South Africa is true.
On the way to the operating area, Angelique is contaminated with GHB and Ketamine, date rape drugs. No one knows if it is to snatch and kill her or is merely by chance.
She is protected by her bodyguard and later husband, Geoffrey Foxtrot and his friend, legendary Special Forces officer, Geelslang Peter Ndebele. They smuggle her to safety, but the drugs are affecting her judgment when she can least afford to be less than her usual self.
She must decide whether to launch a preventative airstrike on the dissidents’ camp using South African Air Force Rooivalk attack helicopters or not. The missiles to be used in the coming strike are the Mokopa, a deadly anti-tank missile system fitted with thermobaric warheads. This is no time to make an error of judgment as they will flatten whatever they are launched at. Current Special Forces members parachute in to assist.
