Battlefront features the US Rifle Platoon for Tour of Duty

Battlefront gives us another look inside Tour of Duty, this time featuring the US Rifle Platoon.

From the website:

Rifle Platoon (VUS712) includes two Command M16 teams, one Medic team, three Rifle squads each with two M16 Rifle teams, one Weapons squads with two M60 LMG teams and optional M67 90mm recoilless team upgrade, two Small three-hole bases, one Small two-hole base & nine Medium four-hole bases.

The bulk of American combat soldiers in Vietnam served in rifle companies. As well as the basic grunt work, these workhorses undertook air assaults and worked with the tanks in mobile operations.
