SADF Operation Packer (1988)
Operation Packer was a military operation by the South African Defence Force (SADF) during the South African Border War and Angolan Civil War. This operation forms part of what became known as the Battle of Cuito Cuanavale.
Although officially following on from Operation Hooper, Operation Packer was in reality concurrent with it most of the time, as its objective was to drive the combined FAPLA/Cuban force back across the Cuito River to the west bank. This task was successfully achieved by the South African forces' GV5 and GV6 howitzers, who forced the FAPLA/Cuban units to the west of the Cuito River from their positions east of Cuito Cuanavale on the Chambinga Heights.
