VN-S03 The VC Sampan Combo
Here’s a great way to save yourself $$ – Combine both VN149 the 3-man ‘Sampan Soldiers’ set together with VN154 ‘The Viet Cong Sampan’ boat!
During the Vietnam Conflict the Viet Cong made ample use of the huge Mekong Delta of canals and waterways to move men, supplies and weaponry all over the southwest region of Vietnam.
Although heavily patrolled by US Navy and South Vietnamese ‘brown-water’ naval units the Delta offered an abundance of hiding places and ambush opportunities for the wily V.C. while they moved stealthily around the area using all kinds of small watercraft. This little set comprises three V.C. kneeling, sitting and crouching together with their weapons.
As they have no cumbersome bases they can easily fit onto theSampan or any other small boat or even… on dry land.
This handy little boat has a V.C. ‘Skipper’ manning the tiller as he makes his way quietly along some waterway in the Delta always listening for the approach of any U.S. or South Vietnamese patrol craft.
