VN175 U.S.M.P. ‘On-Duty’
This particular Military Policeman is a member of the 716th Military Police Battalion who provided security and law enforcement in the Saigon/Cholon/Tan Son Nhut metropolitan area.
Included in their responsibilities were the U.S. Embassy in the centre of Saigon and the massive Military Assistance Command Vietnam headquarters next to Tan Son Nhut Air Base.
K&C’s smartly-dressed MP is wearing his fully-buttoned-up ‘Flak Jacket’, polished helmet and carrying his M16 rifle and, of course, his Colt 1911 .45 Automatic Pistol on his right hip.
This figure works perfectly with the earlier-released M151 “Mutt” U.S. Military Police version (VN142).
