Description

In this defended position in Bien Hoa province, items of military equipment pictured include: two Hughes OH-6A Cayuse, light observation helicopters (upper left) and a Mortar Locating Radar type AN/KPQ-1, from a Divisional Locating Battery (centre). The mound, covered by a hootchie (canvas tarpaulin), is probably concealing a tracked vehicle, possibly an armoured personnel carrier (APC).
