ARVN with Norman


This pack contains an ARVN paratrooper with a 'Blooper' grenade launcher as we felt there was one needed to complete the platoon.

It also has a medic and casualty and a US Army liaison officer.  For this we chose to base it upon a famous incident involving Stormin' Norman Schwarzkopf (of Gulf War generalship fame) Also known as The Bear due to his physical size, who rescued an ARVN casualty whilst serving as a MACV advisor to a South Vietnamese airborne unit during the Vietnam War: His weapon of choice was a short barrel M1 carbine. 

We chose not to simply copy the famous photgraph/ statue of the incident so that Norman can be used independently in his liaison role.  His experiences in Vietnam are best summed up here
