Description

This fortified position, possibly a similarly named Fire Support Base (FSB), was located in the surrounds of a nearby South Vietnamese township. From the positioning of several mobile radar units at the corners of the site, it is probably the home of a divisional locating battery with its own artillery pieces. For its geometric pattern, it appears to be heavily defended with wire perimeters and a defensive minefield.
