Fighting in the desert, really depends on "preparation".|
In this case, Libyan government forces should have "advantage" - and how much the "mutinied Generals" of the Rebel Forces knows about such preparations.
I would reckon, a good Libyan Colonel - in preparation for "invasion" by US forces would have
(1) Oasis, Fuel dump, weapon dump "scattered" all over Libya.
(2) Battle will consist of HEAVY TANK - rapid deploy, city invasion units.
(3) Light trucks, with high caliber gun (distant shooting), SNIPERS, and anti aircraft light missiles!
While air support from British, French and USA led air units will "disperse" the "heavy tank - panzer" elements, it's rather expensive to use "US$1 million a shot smart bombs" to attack "US$15,000 light truck with big caliber gun" units!
What this does, is rather simple!
STALEMATE the battle for Libya!
and STOP oil production - Libyan Government forces will decimate the oil production, to reduce "value" of the "invasion"! This will PUT PRESSURE on Spain, Italy on "petroleum supplies"!
