Beginning assessment: The ARVN south vietnams soldiers who would stop at nothing to destroy the growing communism in vietnam vs. the mujahideen afghanistan's freedom fighters who fought out the russians in the soviet invasion of afghanistan, who is deadliest?
The ARVN were the anti NVA and VC basicly. They were vietnamese soldiers but rather than fighting against the americans and for communism they fought against the NVA and VC for democracy. They were originally supplied with the m1 garand rifle. However the NVA began getting the ak-47 which overpowered them. At their request they attained the m16a1 a green beret once said "you give a ARVN soldier a m16 and he becomes a tiger". Altough despite their incredible spirit they were defeated by their communist enemies.
Short range: M6 bayonet
Mid range: M16a1
Long Range: Springfield m1903
Explosive: M79 grenade launcher
The pre-taliban freedom fighters. However before they fought against the US we supported them ironically. You see here they have the images of the taliban's current weaponary like the RPG and AK-47. The USA provided these because they were perfect guerilla weapons. With the united states help, unlike the ARVN they pushed out the soviet union.
Short Range: Type 56 bayonet
Mid Range: AK-47 (type 56)
Long Range: Lee-enfield
Explosive: RPG 69
So let's see what happens when two groups both with american funding go up against each other?
M6 Bayonet: The ARVN had their own bayonet made specifically for the m16. The m6 bayonet. Their's not much else to say so here's the pic.
Type 56 bayonet: Like the ARVN the mujahideen had their own bayonet only for the ak-47.
Type 69 RPG (Chinese RPG-7): We've seen this weapon on deadliest warrior before. It fires up to 100 meters effortlessly and up to 900 meters if your trained with it. Not all mujihadeen were well trained necessarily. Although I'm sure they learned how to use it (they figured out the stinger which doesn't even have a trigger).
Edge: The RPG has much greater range although it weighs 7 pounds more than the M79. The RPG also fires 80mm warheads which have a very big explosion. The RPG-7 gets the edge for greater range and explosion.
The battle isn't supposed to be high quality.
4 Mujahadine walk into a vietnamese town. Their's small huts everywhere. They keep walking forward when a gunshot roars. A .30 caliber bullet hits a mujihadeen soldier in the head. Mujihadeen=3 ARVN=4
The Mujiahadeen look in the direction of the gunshot. Inside a hut are 4 ARVN soldiers. Immediately a mujihadeen soldier raises an RPG. The 4 ARVN soldiers run run out but one doesn't make it out of the hut. He is killed in the explosion. Mujihadeen=3 ARVN=3
A mujihadeen soldier raises his ak47 and fires at the ARVN soldiers. He hits one in the chest killing him. The other ARVN soldiers run behind a hut. One grabs a m79 and fires at the mujihadeen soldiers who are charging. He kills only one. Mujihadeen=2 ARVN=2
The Mujihadeen continue charging. An ARVN soldier pops out and sprays with his m16 hitting one of the soldiers in the chest multiple times. The remaining mujihadeen soldier runs behind another hut. The ARVN soldiers seeing a chance charge. The mujihadeen soldier grabs an enfield and fires, hitting one of them in the chest. Mujihadeen=1 ARVN=1
The Remaining ARVN soldier charges and draws his bayonet (detached from weapon). The Mujihadeen soldier grabs his bayonet and charges. The ARVN soldier swings but the Mujiahdeen soldier ducks and stabs. His blade goes into the heart of the ARVN soldier, killing him.
