Abstract:
The number of PAVN troops in South Vietnam continues to grow at a significant rate. The presence of 10 PAVN units of regimental strength along with 4 separate battalions, totalling some 18,500 men, has now been confirmed in South Vietnam. In addition, there are at least 8 to 10 other suspect PAVN units in the South which, if confirmed, could raise the total number of PAVN to over 30,000. Available evidence indicates that large-scale infiltration is continuing as the Communists prepare for their rainy season offensive.
