The Army of the Republic of Vietnam retains the older style of organisation with its machine-guns, bazookas, and light mortars grouped into a company weapons platoon rather than being part of the rifle platoons.
The new M20 Super Bazooka is an updated 3.5-inch (89mm) version of the original 60mm Bazooka used in the Second World War. The increase in calibre gives it a significant increase in punch.
With just half the number of M79 grenade launchers and a third the number of machine-guns of an American company, the light mortars are an important component in the company's firepower. They provide both a light artillery capability and operate as heavy grenade launchers to knock out VC machine-gun positions.
