Ratel IFV close combat with T-55. UPDATED with info on the fight!~

via Tanks-a-lot Tumblr Page.

The view through the scope the South African RATEL infantry fighting vehicles at a destroyed Soviet tank T-55 during the war for the independence of Namibia.

Geez.  That is close combat for armored vehicles.  For all intents and purposes these guys were in a telephone booth duking it out if the kill happened at this range.  Note the pic has 25ft in its caption.

Anyone know anything about the circumstances surrounding this fight and this pic?
