Description
A steel-hulled '96 Viet Cong trawler that attempted to run weapons and ammunition into the Delta. This photograph shows the captured trawler after more than 80 tons of weapons had been removed by Task Force 116. Master Caption: In the Mekong Delta area on June 20, 1966, a green Viet Cong trawler bearing no flad or markings was intercepted by the Coast Guard Cutter Point League. The trawler attempted to fight it out with two U.S. Coast Guard Cutters, but was chased into shallow water and set afire. The steel-hulled 96 foot 11 inches Viet Cong trawler was estimated by U.S. Military Personnel on the scene to be carrying about eighty tons of ammunition. 120 rifles, 13 machine guns, 12 recoilless mortars and several hundred assorted small arms such as pistols and carbines were part of the cargo. The trawler was run aground 7 1/2 miles south, near the mouth of the Co Chein River near the village of Ba Dong at L 9 degrees 7.5 north L 106 degrees 34.1 50 yeards from the beach. The crew was not reported as captured and were believed to have been able to join an estimated Viet Cong force of five battalions on the beach.

Another patrol craft, with flag flying, stands by during the inspection. Three PACV's have been operating in South Vietnam since May 1966. These high-speed vehicles, capable of speeds up to 50 mph, are being used for coastal surveillance, intercept, and investigation to prevent seaborne infiltration and supply of Viet Cong in South Vietnam.

Description
Looking more like a moster from the sea than a Navy patrol boat, a PACV (Patrol Air Cushion Vehicle) slides slowly up a landing ramp in Vietnam after a patrol along the Delta waterways leading to Siagon. Lt. Michael W. Vincent, executive officer of the division of three PACVs in Vietnam, directs the movements of the craft which rides on a cushion of air. The vehicles can accelerate to 50 knots and pursue Viet Cong craft across shallow waters, flat marshlands or sandbars. Lt. Vincent is from San Francisco, California.

Description
The South Vietnamese River Force, consisting of amphibious boats and patrol craft manned by Vietnamese and advised by U.S. Navymen, combats the Viet Cong along the thousands of miles of inland waterways in South Vietnam. Primary job of the River Force is to transport troops in assault missions against the Viet Cong. The force is divided into seven river assault groups calls rags, based in strategic positions throughout the southermost part of the country. Each rag can carry and support some 500 troops during an operation. Between assault missions, River Force boats patrol waterways looking for the Viet Cong, frequently escorting convoys of small civilian sampans carrying rice to market.
