Taking place between August 14, 1987 and March 23, 1988, the Battle of Cuito Cuanavale was the biggest battle to take place in Africa since World War II. The function of the Soviet advisers was to train and advise the Communist forces of the MPLA, from basic training, equipment use to planning operations.

I remember hearing it had been the biggest tank battle since WW 2
