Description

An unidentified base which was involved in the defence of the provincial capital Baria. This Tarpaulin Covered Vehicle (TCV), a 106 mm Recoilless Rifle (RCL), mounted on a short wheelbase landrover, was designed primarily for use against armoured targets. This vehicle partly supports a canvas constructed 'hootchie', possibly covering a gun emplacement, on its side. Baria is located 17 km north east of Vung Tau.
