They managed to take control of a significant territory in this region, a large port and refinery center Abadan was also besieged. However, the protracted battle for Khorramshahr and Susangerd cities led to the fact that the Iraqis were no longer able to capture the two next major Iranian cities - Dizful and Ahvaz, but only besieged them. Destruction of a major Iraqi group between Ahvaz and Susangerd became the main goal of the first major Iranian counteroffensive named Operation "Nasr" (Victory). The main role in the operation was assigned to the 16 and 92ArmBde units. Also, IRGC and militia units were brought to participate in the operation.

OPERATION MODULER
Military clash between Angolans and SADF during Bush War in 1987. On dawn of October 3, the SADF tactical groups and UNITA forces launched an attack on Angolan 47th Brigade.
In the 1987, the Angolan (FAPLA) battle plan was direct: forces would move from Cuito Cuanavale to the South and South-East towards the Lomba river, cross it and occupy the town Mavinga. Mavinga was important because of its airstrip, which would enable the AAF to support a further phase of the offensive, an advance to Jamba, UNITA’s HQ. Once Jamba fell, the expectation was UNITA would be finished.
Over the years, South Africa gave military aid to UNITA, as this movement occupied the South-East corner of Angola and prevented SWAPO guerrillas from entering the Caprivi and Okavango territories in Namibia. In 1987 the SADF sent 20th SA Brigade under the command of Colonel Deon Ferreira to support UNITA. It comprised 61st Mechanized Battalion Group, two motorised infantry companies from 32nd Battalion and AT squadron, as well as two motorised infantry companies from 101st Battalion. There were also three artillery batteries. The whole force was 2609 men strong. In addition, there were an unknown number (several thousand) of UNITA fighters alongside the SA.
For the 1987 offensive, FAPLA employed a total of 8 brigades. Four acted as the garrison and escort, the other four formed the hammer fist of the offensive. This force comprised about 6000 men and 80 tanks, plus artillery, augmented with air support. 47th Brigade being the strongest of the four attacker FAPLA brigades on the front line. 47th and 59th FAPLA Brigades advanced in a pincer movement: while 47th rounded the western source of the Lomba river and moved eastwards along the southern shore, 59th moved in conjunction with 47th on the northern side. 47th and 59th Brigades were collaborating in the construction of a TMM bridge just east of the confluence of the Lomba and Cuzizi rivers.

Regular maintenance of your safe is also vital to ensure its continued effectiveness.
