Petunia Paleo is no oc but a background filly

Looks interesting so far.
Paleo seems nice (Though I will say I get really irritated when people just stick a -saurus on the end of any old word and think it sounds plausible. Saurus is Greek for lizard. Call it Hipposaurus, or Equusaurus or Ungulosaurus. Or name it after where it was discovered or who discovered it. So I suppose she could one day discover a dinosaur and name it the Petuniasaurus)
Still, I look forward to exploring the good and evil on both sides.
The stories of what deserters did to those who ran afoul of them are horrifying!

Couple of my great grandfathers served in Vietnam

8334517
Which Part of the forces if you don't mind me asking.

8334617
One was regular army and the other was special forces

8334813
I See. By the Way, Do you know if
S.o.g operatives had a different Uniform compared to Army and Marines?

8335141
Almost different uniforms, defiantly different patches. Sog operatives wore mostly cameo than just green like marines and regular armed forces

8335547
Thanks, looked everywhere but couldn't find anything. In the old game Battlefield VIetnam, the ARVN wears brown cameo uniforms, so I took that for Hoang's uniform.

8335548
Unless he is in desert, or in marshes. I wouldn't use brown cameo,easily spotted by enemy forces or an enemy sniper in the jungles of Vietnam

8335579
Yes, how do the ARVN uniform on the picture for you, looks brown camo for me. and the SOG uniform, same color as the Army and Marines

8335594
My great grandfather who was in the regular army, he had to go out take corpses off the battlefields in trucks. Didn't matter who it was

8335599
Not a plesant tasks. But tell me, how do the ARVN uniform on the picture for you, looks brown camo for me. and the SOG uniform, same color as the Army and Marines

Well whatever the ARVN had in mind probably worked when it came to camouflaging their soldiers they know the environment, so i won't judge anymore

8335609
Okay. The Marines ingame wear casual camouflaged military fatigues and a tank top, which reveals how exceptionally muscular they are, compared to soldiers of other factions, thus are shown as being the most muscular of the factions. As you could reads, I took that too for the story.

8335604
Its never an easy job, but someone has to do it.Considering the place they were in. Like with SOG they wore black and green or a dark green. But i do find it odd that its brown camo for the ARVN,it could separate them from the NVA

8335616
Yeah. I barely found anything about their uniforms, so I took the uniforms they wear in the game.

8335613
I did see that in the second chapter alot of marines were muscular. Wait have you heard of Larry throne,the soldier of three armies?

8335623
I belive I heard that once but do not know much about it.

8335624
Well he served in the Swedish army as a captain in ww2, then the German army but was recruited by the Waffen SS and finally the U.S Army special forces in the Vietnam war died in a helicopter crash in 1956 October 18th, Couldn't find his remains until 99 then identified in 2003 and buried in Arlington national cemetery

I haven't read this yet but the idea seems incredibly interesting. It is very obscure and will definitely throw the (un)fortunate pony off balance to their normal life...

Nice to see another ARVN story here :). I'm writing a story revolving around the ARVN as well, partly because I want to keep the memory alive. Uniforms are a little off though. yes, the ARVN was equipped with American gear, meaning that they have OG-107 green uniforms and for special forces (Rangers, Airborne, Special forces) ERDL (Early woodland camo.) with Marines and Navy Seals (Yes, they had Navy Seals) wearing the Tigerstripe camo you see SOG wear on some of the BF Vietnam maps. Same as the Americans, with the only differences being pocket style, and sizes (they were ridiculously short). I suggest this site and this site for stories and pictures of uniforms. Also keep in mind of context. it's 1969, the Tet offensive was a year ago, ARVN enlistment would've skyrocketed since they were shown as capable of pulling off victories and defenses against communist forces, the same was said for them in 1972 post Easter Offensive.

Thank you, i took most Information From Battlefield Vietnam, also the Uniform, looked always brown to me.

8337602
Your welcome, just might wanna look them up first. Only exception to the tan uniforms like those shown in BF Vietnam were with the National Police Field force, militarized police forces(Closest equivalent is the Gendarmerie). Closesest thing I could match to what was worn in BF Vietnam is this;

rvnhs.com/museum/uniforms/BEOGAM2.jpg

This was worn by special forces, recon units, and CIDG (Village Militias trained by the U.S.)

8337616
Yeah, i coudn't find anything Else when i wrote this

I really hope you do the russian roulette scene, keep up the good work

8417256
Thanks, i will. I have a Russian Roulette Scene planed for a later chapter

Glad to hear it, it was a Good Game for its Time

No Welcome to Earth no Hello just

"Welcome to the Jungle!"

Yes. I took some inspiration from COD black ops

“Vietnam. I read of it once back home. I’m no fan of it, but judging by your uniforms, you are soldiers, right?”

Sind die jetzt in Vietnamm oder nicht? Woher weiß das kleine Ding was Vietnam ist? Aaaah Black Ops mindfuckery

8846392
Nun, mein headcanon ist das menschen nur ein myth sind aber ihre welt und kultur ist im schul untericht beinhaltet. And ja, es ist Vietnam.

8846395
In meinem Gesehen existieren Erde und Mensch im selben Universum wie die ponies werden aber als Mythos bezeichnet
