Description

The People’s Army committed their armour into battle in battalions, Tieu Doan Thiet Giap (pronounced thee-ow doh-ahn tee-et harp), and grouped these into entire regiments.

As aid from China and the Soviet Union increased, their armoured strength grew rapidly from a single battalion in 1965 to three armoured regiments in 1971. This gave them a significant advantage over the puppet forces as each battalion had more tanks than an entire ARVN armoured brigade.

The Vietnamese term xe thiet giap (ironclad vehicle) is used to refer to tanks. However, the influence of the English word ‘tank’ has also led to the use of xe tang (pronounced ser tung), or simply tang as well. Confusingly, tang itself means increase or up.
