Description

The three companies of a North Vietnamese armored battalions were often equipped with different types of tanks. At first this was due to a shortage of modern tanks, but later combinations of tanks, amphibious tanks, and armored personnel carriers allowed a battalion to undertake whatever role was assigned it without further support.

Most armored battalions include a dai doi co gioi bo binh (pronounced dai doy kur vay boh beeng), or mechanized infantry company. These operate Soviet BTR-50PK xe thiet giap cho quan (pronounced ser tee-et harp chur kwun) armored troop carriers. Their role is to use their mobility and armor to advance close behind the tanks, then dismount and assault on foot covered by fire from the tank’s guns. Their high proportion of B41 anti-tank weapons means that they can defend themselves if attacked by enemy tanks.
