Description

A slim, slip of a young Vietnamese woman sitting holding her captured U.S. made M2 Carbine.
Many of these weapons were given to the South Vietnamese forces because they were lighter to carry and easier to use than the heavier, more cumbersome M1 ‘Garand’ rifles that the ARVN (Army of the Republic of Vietnam) had originally been issued with prior to the introduction of the M16.
A number of these carbines inevitably fell into Viet Cong hands and were often distributed to female members who found them simpler to operate and lighter to carry.

This young VC woman is holding a Korean War era carbine complete with a 30 x round curved magazine.
