    Hmmm – russian jets & pilots in Vietnam same as in Korean War.
    North Korea only saved by Chinese Army / russian pilots taking part.
    Viet Cong were lapdogs of both Russia and China politically. All part of the 2 sided Cold War !
    As for assess whipped not quite ! look at the horrendous losses of NVA & VC personnel.
    In fact in almost all Battlefield type engagements the VC were beaten to the point where they went fully guerrilla oriented.
    Not that the NVA/VC & Russian advisers weren’t brave good fighters, same with the Aus/US troops. I guess what gets to me about the above comment is that it digs at the integrity of the foot soldiers who did their best and not at the politicians which is where the real responsibility lies.

    “helped defeat the vietcong” They were not defeated. They won and drove out the imperialist invaders as well as their aussie lapdogs. Australians should be studying about how they got involved and how they got their asses whipped. Not focusing on one battle where you can claim victory.
