    The Soviet-Afghan War was an armed conflict fought primarily between the Jihad-icon.png Mujahideen against the Soviet-icon.png Soviet Unionball who intervened on behalf of DR Afghan-icon.png DR Afghanistanball. The war began in the year 1979 when Soviet troops landed in DR Afghanistanball and quickly took over the government, urban centers, cities, communication lines, and other vital positions while preparing for incursions into the rural countryside where the Mujahideen were hiding out. The Mujahideen were pushed to the mountains and was backed into a corner, but they waged a successful guerrilla war that strained Sovietball greatly and depleted too many of its economic resources as the war dragged on.

    Since this was during the Cold War, USA-icon.png USAball and UK-icon.png UKball got involved in the war and supplied the Mujahideen against Sovietball and the Communism-icon.png Communist DR Afghan government and later, Pakistan-icon.png Pakistanball and Saudi Arabia-icon.png Saudi Arabiaball got involved for Pan-Islamic cooperation.
