I love theses old 21st Century toys NAM sets .

      This is Kwano , part of a Mike Force Team . Mike Force was under command of MAC-V SOG . Coloured scarfs seem popular amongst Mike Force teams , though some of the more brightly coloured ones as here , were more likely given as awards to individuals . Along with the patches , I have doubt these would be worn in combat . Kwano is loaded with ammo , these small teams often operated in areas where extraction or back up could be slow to reach them . His AK47 Chest rig has been converted to carry magazines for the Swedish K - M.G , and a WW11 Grease gun pouch to carry further mags . The other standard pouches likely carry frag grenades and field dressings ect . Often Ammo was carried in favour of food and water . His ruck appears to be a dyed black NVA ruck , I not researched this much , and it could well be a custom made item . The Mike Force Patch was banned in the end , as the initials M.F,  by higher ups was believed could easily be misinterpreted . Very Happy

The NVA fighter chose wisely!

More interesting history, and a great looking figure! Love those colorful scarves! The "canvas" work on all his pouches and satchels is outstanding this time around!

Again such superior work which I'm sure we all remain in awe of, and I really liked the little scenario too. 
Specially the last "English" remark of the NVA fighter!
This really wets our appetite for the BIG PUSH which we hope will come from you soon!

I'm betting the men really loved those MF patches and wore them with a certain pride!
(Not to mention a sense of irony!)
