NVA and VC Units March 1972
III Corps Tactical Zone

Generally this summary is limited to battalions or higher. Because of this format, it is sometimes difficult to work back up to subordination of all units. An asterisk indicates a border area unit (i.e., along the border) but believed to be in South Vietnam at the time. Transportation and other service-type battalions have been omitted. "RR" indicates recoilless rifle, not railroad.
