Original ARVN Vietnam War Army of the Republic of Vietnam ARVN Rangers Tiger Stripe Long Sleeve Uniform Set
Original Items: Only One Set Available. The Army of the Republic of Vietnam (ARVN) was the name for all ground forces during the Vietnam War. Army units were organized into four Corps (I through IV), each covering a geographical region of South Vietnam. Primary combat units included eleven Infantry Divisions, one Airborne Division (Nhẩy Dù), the ARVN Rangers (Biệt Động Quân), and the ARVN Special Forces (Lực Lượng Đặc Biệt or LLDB). The Vietnam Air Force and Republic of Vietnam Navy (including the Republic of Vietnam Marine Corps or Thủy Quân Lục Chiến) made up the remainder of the South Vietnamese armed forces. Other combatant units during the Vietnam War included the National Police Field Force and the Civilian Irregular Defense Group (CIDG) units, the latter composed of minority tribal people, trained by the US Army Special Forces and funded primarily by the CIA (from 1961 until 1970).
Production of military uniforms in South Vietnam was primarily handled by the Quân-Nhu (Quartermaster) Military Clothing Production Center, activated in 1954 and responsible for the manufacture of textiles and complete uniforms for all of the armed forces of South Vietnam. This uniform appears to have been manufactured by them and bears an extremely faint ink stamp on the inside which is similar to other examples we have seen.
The uniform is in really good condition and shows signs of extensive wear and fading without any extensive damage.
Comes more than ready for further research and display.
