SADF Ratel IFV taking out a Soviet T-54/55 Tank in close combat
14
The “cold war” at its height in Angola gets very “hot” – 14 February 1988. Extraordinary and very rare combat photograph of South Africans in combat during the South West African/Angolan Border War. Here a South African Ratel 90 takes out a FAPLA Soviet made T-54/55 tank during Operation Hooper. The Ratel had fired three heat rounds into the tank before it stopped.

To the crew of the much lighter armoured Ratel (it is after all an Infantry Fighting Vehicle IFV not a Tank) this would have been highly nerve racking, especially given the proximity of combat and the thick bush in Southern Angola – which as can be seen in this picture – was very thick, and very close. All kudos to the skill and training of this Ratel’s crew for the steady nerves.

This remarkable photograph was taken by the Ratel’s commander Lt Duncan, call sign 31C.

MiG-23 Vs Mirage F.1: when Cuban-flown Angolan Floggers clashed with South African Mirages - The Aviation Geek Club
The SAAF had to admit that - thanks to the superior armament of the Cuban-flown MiG-23MLs - Angola was now in possession of air superiority
