The tactics are different for these periods – during the first stage of the war, the mujahedeen forces attempted to fight against the Soviet Army and the Army of the DRA (Democratic Republic of Afghanistan) on “equal footing”. Later on, the mujahedeen realized that these tactics would not lead to success and they turned to guerrilla actions. Campaign 1: Soviet Invasion 1980-1982.
