Infantry Company (VPABX07)

Infantry Company (VPABX07)
includes one Command AK47 Assault Rifle team, two Infantry Platoons each with four AK47 Assault Rifle teams, three B40 teams with optional B41 upgrades, two optional Type 58 LMG teams, two Small three-hole bases & sixteen Medium four-hole bases.

The bộ đội, foot soldiers, are the core of the infantry companies. As the troops of B3 Front are some of the best in the PAVN, they have an almost equal mix of the newer AK47 assault rifles and older SKS carbines. The squad automatic weapon is the RPD machine-gun, a modernised, belt-fed version of the WWII-era DP ‘record player’ machine-gun. Each squad also contains a B40 rocket launcher, a Chinese copy of the Soviet RPG-2.

Tour Of Duty
Infantry Company (VPABX07)

Noting the success of Chinese bayonet charges in driving the US forces back into South Korea, the Vietnamese have practised bayonet tactics. Every soldier is eager to kill Americans and close and use their bayonet to great effect.
