Italeri Military 1/72 Vietnam: Vietnamese Army/Vietcong Soldiers (50 Figures) Set
The armed forces of the National Liberation Front (NLF) were composed both by regular units of the North Vietnam army and by irregulars. The term “Vietcong” was used as a generic term for NLF soldiers, but in common iconography it represents the irregular guerrillas. The Vietcong were armed with Soviet-produced weapons like the ubiquitous AK-47 Kalašnikov assault rifle, or the semi-automatic SKS carbine. In January 1968, they took part in the massive Tet Offensive during the night of the Vietnamese New Year.
