  • Description

    UNITED STATES MILITARY INTELLIGENCE OFFICERS HAVE BEEN MAKING A CLOSE STUDY OF WEAPONS CAPTURED RECENTLY FROM VIET CONG FORCES IN THE MEKONG DELTA AREA NORTH OF SAIGON.

    PARTICULAR ATTENTION HAS BEEN GIVEN TO ROCKET LAUNCHERS USED IN RECENT ATTACKS BY THE VIET CONG.

    THE MOST SOPHISTICATED WEAPON CAPTURED WAS A B-40 ROCKET LAUNCHER, MANUFACTURED IN THE SOVIET UNION. AMERICAN EXPERTS REGARD IT AS INACCURATE.

    AMONG THE OTHER WEAPONS STUDIO ARE MACHINE-GUNS MADE IN THE SOVIET UNION AND THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CHINA. AMERICAN OFFICIALS SAY THAT THESE WEAPONS, SOPHISTICATED AND ACCURATE HAVE CONTRIBUTED TO THE INCREASED EFFECTIVENESS OF THE VIET CONG FORCES IN RECENT MONTHS.
