Special Forces From Mars
Mars US Special Operations Forces (GREEN BERETS) Vietnam War.
54mm figures in plastic.
It is interesting that a set labelled Green Berets has no figure wearing a beret.
It does has a couple people who are rather Rambo in their attire, such as this one with the head scarf. Machine gun ammo is usually carried in pouches rather than Mexican bandit style. Ammo exposed can become damaged and fail to function.
The previous figure and this figure are plausible rather than common in real life. Still both are good figures, well posed and with useful weapons.
M2 carbine with banana magazine.
This looks like a short barrel M16 variant which was carried by Special Forces.
This figure looks more like a standard infantryman rather than anything specific to Special Forces.
