PART III. T54 TANKS, ARTILLERY 130mm, HUMAN WAVE TACTICS OF VC WAS TOTALLY INEFFECTIVE BY RESOLUTE DEFENSE OF ARVN.
Ladies and gentlemen!
- When the sunrise, the enemy still beset our base, they shelled into our position continuously and attacked us with tanks T54.
- Dealing with enemy tanks, we were established a mobile anti-tank group. They move around the defensive lines of the base. They only use portable rocket M72. This kind can fire metal easily.
- Every time the enemy tank appeared, the group of anti-tank they crawl to the right place and ambush there. When the tank showed up they shoot at the same time several rockets.
- What metal does not fire when hit by M72 rocket of the US, I don’t think so. Therefore, that was why the enemy attacked with tanks was totally useless to us.
- Every time the enemy tank fired, battlefield became boisterous. Soldiers of our side yelling noisy while Infantrymen of VC behind the tank they run as a flock of ducks. I did not lie this, that was true.
- Sometime, the enemy attacked us by “Human wave tactics”. At the same time, they were shouting loud “Attacking, attacking” and ran over toward us such as the sea of people.
- Unfortunately for them, two cannons 105 mm of our side direct fired with special cannonball anti human sea tactics, so they fell as chickenpox.
- Every time their attack failed, they continued shelling into our position. But the cannons 130mm and missiles 122mm were not enough destructive power to destroy the bunker cover of our TOC.
- Because B50 base was very solidly, it was built by the US Military before and left behind. The bunker was underground and its cover about one meter of concrete thickness.
- Finally, the enemy side did not breach our defensive lines throughout 7 days and nights. But vice versa, we were able to break their blockade whenever we want. That was true, I did not lie this.
- Thank you.
