Operation Fox, 1983

Operation BravoIt was known that SA-8 batteries were positioned about 2 kms South West of the town [of Cahama], close to the road to Ediva. A sub-operation within Askari was Operation Fox. This called for a combined effort of ground and air forces to bomb and bombard in such a pattern, that the SA-8 batteries would be forced to change their position by moving to the south. The idea was to drive them out of the protective ring surrounding Cahama, into the vicinity of FAPLA's AAA defensive sites in the area of Ediva. Once in this area a concerted effort by the ground forces, (both Army and Recce), was to attempt to capture an SA-8 system. This section of the overall Askari plan, was given top priority.
