Hi guys.

I am wondering if there are plans how the GJ's built their forts/strongpoints in Vietnam?

In many pictures i can see that triangle form. Did river forts/strongpoints have a different plan?

Please share your information, especially some pictures and plans about those.

Thank you very much!! :D

Sincerly

They were called firebases and varied a good deal according the the local threat and I doubt there was a singular blueprint. Most had smaller artillery pieces such as 105mm and had a similar layout of bunkers, but certainly varied to the plans of the local engineers, threat displacement and terrain...

Here's a nice site with lots of pictures....

Just watched the link. These 175mm guns on tracks look awesome!
