Abstract:

This reporting period was characterized by the repositioning of automatic weapons and searchlight assets consistent with the changing operational situation and the increasing exploitation of the M42A1 indirect fire capabilities. The battalions overall combat capability continued to be enhanced by the attachment and deployment of the Vulcan Combat Team VCT. The battalions flexibility and maintenance support capabilities continue to be aggravated by the almost total commitment of General Support assets in response to demands for automatic weapons in the Saigon and Bien Hoa areas. Continuing emphasis was placed on developing procedures and formulizing doctrine directed at improving the indirect fire accuracy of the M42A1.
