Description

Known as the Viet cong (a contraction of Viet nam Cong san, Nationalist Communist, or alternatively Viet gian Cong san Communist Traitor to Vietnam) in the south, the Dia Phuong Quan (local forces) are a mix of southerners returned from the north since the partition, and local recruits disaffected by the Saigon regime.

One of the big advantages the local forces have is the ability to blend in with the population. This makes it difficult for Imperialist and puppet forces to detect ambushes and attacks before the local forces are in position.

The Communist cause has the advantage of the support of the local resistance, be they simply locals who contribute food and medicines, or active fighters who scout out imperialist and puppet positions and plant bombs.
