Hi All , meet " Quang . "  " Quang "  is part of my Special Forces Project Delta Vietnam , ( team 1 ) .  Acting under the umbrella of MACV-SOG  . ( Military Assistance Command Vietnam - Studies and observation Group ) . The Project Delta consisted of two types of teams , reconnaissance teams and what were known as road runner teams . The teams consisted of two U.S Special Forces troops and four Vietnamese trained Special forces personnel . These small teams generally became very close friends to each other . The teams often had missions into neighbouring countries to Vietnam such as Laos and Cambodia , there missions consisted of intelligence gathering , sabotage , prisoner snatches , downed pilot rescues , amongst many other dangerous and top secret missions . The Road runner teams , wore dyed black U.S or enemy uniforms , and often operated along known enemy trails .  Quang as you can see is one member of my Road Runner team . He is equipped with an extraction harness , these could be hitched to lines dropped from Helicopters , and they could be evacuated even if a landing zone was not available , and they could be winched up out of danger even in reasonably dense jungle , to get the team out . The road runner teams often used enemy or other more obscure weapons , here an AK47 , to confuse the enemy in any ambush of fire fight .

The photo below shows the Extraction Harness hooked up out of the way , whilst on the mission .

And whilst waiting for extraction , the harness is worn strapped around the crotch , as in the following photo , the troops could actually sit in these harnesses whilst being dragged through the air by the Huey`s .

Well yes, you could, just as long as you were prepared to audition for the Vienna Boys Choir should you survive the mission..... Shocked

Another really superb addition to your troops! cheers cheers cheers

I’m really liking the pictures you’ve taken of Quang. I found that information of Quang  is part of your Special Forces Project Delta Vietnam , ( team 1 ) very interesting. I think Quang is dressed very simply and plain. He sure is carrying lots of ammo pouches.

Thanks all , most kind .
@ Alex , yes he does carry lots of ammo , as they often operated in countries that bordered Vietnam , such as Laos and Cambodia , any contact they made , they pretty much had to look after themselves till they could get to an evac point , there was no back up of artillery or airstrikes in such places , these small teams were on their own .
