The goal is to show comparisons in equipment and to show how to set up the equipment properly, etc.... Basically an dummy's guide to VN equipment.
Basic M1956 web gear.
There are two different styles of ammo pouches. left is 1st pattern and right is 2nd pattern, the difference is eyelets.
Since those are Universal ammo pouches, It can keep four M1 clips, three M-14 magazines. As you can see, M-16 magazines don't fit in very well because pouches are too deep. According to vietnamgear, soldiers usually stuff sock in bottom to keep magazines near top for easy grab.
