What types of weapons were used by US in the Vietnamese war?

  • Thousands of US troops arrived equipped with heavy weapons and tanks and backed by the most powerful bombers of the time, B-52.
  • The widespread attacks and use of chemical weapons like Napalm, Agent Orange and phosphorus bombs—destroyed many villages and decimated jungles.
  • Napalm is an organic compound used to thicken gasoline for fire bombs. The mixture burns slowly and when it comes in contact with surfaces like the human body, it sticks and continues to burn.
