There are seven Great powers:

ZAIRE: (A or F) Kinshasa; A Kisangani; (A or F) Matadi

Note: Egypt and Zaire have choice starting posiitons, but must start the game with two armies and a fleet. The initial placement of units, including the discretionary placements of Egypt and Zaire, together with South Africa’s choice of coast for F(Johannesburg) takes place in Winter 1982. which is played as a separate season.

3. Suez

Suez is a special space on the map and as such it may be occupied by a unit (army or fleet). However, units may also pass through the space in one move, so the order F(EMS)-RED is a legal move and can take place in one season. However, any unit occupying Suez wiol prevent all moves through the canal by any other player, unless specifically ordered to allow them to pass. Units may also pass directly between cairo and Sinai on the same basis (i.e. they may be blocked by a unit in Suez).
