Battle of Cuito Cuanavale

The Battle of Cuito Cuanavale in 1987/88 was an important episode in the Angolan Civil War (1975 to 2002). Between 9 September and 7 October 1987, the Armed Forces for the Liberation of Angola (FAPLA), in an attempt to destroy the guerrillas of UNITA (the National Union for the Total Independence of Angola), advanced into southeastern Angola from Cuito Cuanavale to attack UNITA at Mavinga. The South African Defence Force (SADF), whose primary objective was to protect UNITA in southern Angola in order to prevent the South West African People's Organization (SWAPO) from using the region to launch attacks into South West Africa, once more intervened on UNITA’s behalf. The Battle of Cuito Cuanavale, which took place over about six months, was at that time the biggest battle on African soil since World War II.Mills & Williams (2006) The southwards FAPLA/Cuban advance against UNITA was halted with heavy casualties and was abandoned, and the battle then stalemated. Cuba and FAPLA switched their attention westward, the SADF removed the bulk of its resources to counter the new threat, and all sides resumed negotiations. Both sides claimed victory in the battle.

Chieftain tank

The Chieftain FV4201 was the main battle tank of the United Kingdom during the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s. A development of the Centurion and therefore a continuation of the British cruiser series, sharing a substantial commonality of parts with both its predecessor and successor. It was the "most formidable main battle tank in the world" with, at the time of its introduction in 1966 the most powerful main gun and most effective armour of any tank yet made. The Chieftain also introduced a supine (reclining backwards) driver position, enabling a heavily sloped hull with reduced height. Faster than Centurion, able to maintain its speed longer than the Leopard 1 and out-gunning its contemporaries Chieftain was also the first tank to enhance its (already superior) armour with composite armour add-ons, beginning with Chobham developed in the UK. It remained in service until replaced by the Challenger 1.
