US Special Forces wearing Tiger Stripe Pattern battle dress uniforms and a variety of headdress, including green berets, bandanas, Jones hats, and steel helmets. The figuras are mounted on Crossfire stands representing fireteams, snipers, mortar sections, and platoon commanders. The bases were covered with spackling compound, painted earth brown, drybrushed light ochre, and partially covered with static grass. The sandbag emplacements pictured here are made of DAS Pronto modelling clay.

- Good choice of subject, US Special Forces are unique in this scale.
- Uniforms, weapons and equipment are well defined and paint up nicely.
- Suitable wargame poses which convert well to add even more variety.
- Compatible with Hasegawa, Italeri, and Revell.
- Some flash and mould lines need to be removed prior to painting.
- Less than 20 percent of the figuras are wearing the ubiquitous vietnam era flak-vest, making them unsuitable for the typical firebase defence scenario.
- Most of these figuras are travelling lightly, without packs and with surprisingly little equipment and ammunition on their bodies, considering that they are supposed to be Special Forces operating behind enemy lines. Dropped packs and cached ammunition might have been a nice addition to this kit, allowing the diorama builder to model a patrol and ambush scenario.
- The Rambo-type figures, half-naked and wearing bandanas around their heads, have a certain Hollywood appeal, but they are out of place in a typical Vietnam War era combat scenario.
- Mortars and Claymore mines are not included in the set.
The 15 poses included in this set are enough to raise a Special Forces A-Team with 12 unique figures. Wargamers may deploy their Special Forces A-Team as a unit of three fireteams, one sniper, and one platoon commander, or as individual soldiers attached to Company Command Stands of indiginous infantry battalions.
