A 9 Squadron RAAF helicopter (not pictured) takes in a panoramic view of this bustling port city as it prepares to land at its home base (centre). Matching the escalation of the war, the military infrastructure of this important base area has been fully developed to support ongoing operations in the surrounding region. Vung Tau was chosen for its ability to sustain a significant Australian presence. Here can be seen a vast array of military bases containing buildings, vehicles, plant and aircraft as logistical troops go about their daily activities during the war.
