1 SA Tank Regiment deployed under Joint Tactical Headquarters Limpopo recovered millions worth of luxury, high-performance vehicles in one night. Commanded by their erstwhile Officer Commanding, Lieutenant Colonel Heidi Dalton, who happens to be the first female to ever command a Battalion during Operation CORONA in this part of South Africa, the Unit from the ‘City of Roses’ as Bloemfontein is called by those who swear allegiance to the town which is roughly situated in the heart/centre of South Africa, is making hardened criminals run for their dear lives.
Perhaps Lieutenant Colonel Dalton is motivated by the story of the past women warriors like the Dahomey Mino, although 1 SA Tank Regiment is not a female-only unit.
Members of 1 SA Tank Regiment were busy with Waylays operations on the Western side of Mabiligwe 2, when they spotted 4 x vehicles driving towards the Limpopo River. Our soldiers had to manoeuvre in the right place where they assumed that the vehicles would try to cross. But unfortunately, as there is no road, the vehicles changed direction and that forced our soldiers to break cover. Once approached, the occupants started shooting at our soldiers and the SA National Defence Force members returned fire. The suspects escaped into the bushes and were swallowed by the dark night.
The SA National Defence Force members confiscated all 4 x vehicles which were all identified as Toyota Fortuner GD 6, 4 x 4. The two were T/Fortuner 2.8 GD 6 valued at R2, 400, 000-00 and the other two were T/Fortuner 2.4 GD 6 valued at R1, 800, 000-00. All vehicles were handed over to the South African Police Services.
The Officer Commanding Joint Tactical Headquarters, Limpopo Colonel Choene Sam Mabotja commended the members for a job well done.
