Excellent again, at this rate you're going to have more figures than they had SEALs and SOG in country, when the SASR come out there's no chance of the North winning lol

Thanks for the feedback chaps.

Just finished the book 'SOG: The Secret War of America's Commandos in Vietnam' by John L. Plaster, can highly recommend it to anyone interested in the subject.

Some incredibly brave men carrying out insanely dangerous missions, against inordinate numbers of enemy.
All whilst the majority of their missions details were leaked to the enemy prior to their insertion.

Smart, did they use silencers on those? Maybe just put one on and just say it was a local armourer fix.

They did have a silenced version, I managed to damage my first go and it's not stuck back on quite straight. Time for take three...



Got the idea from this picture,
