angola Operation Meebos


22-jul-83    to    11-aug-83

South African assault on SWAPO Central Area Headquarters camp, launched from the border area with Namibia to the south. After initial success, the operation ran out of momentum, partly due to reluctance to advance the operation base northward, closer to the engagement and partly due to inexperience and over-cautiousness of senior commanders. A force of 9 Puma was available for troop insertion, protected by 7 Alouette III.
