Battlefield Vietnam features several customization options for soldiers. While choosing a class, players are given the choice of two body and head types. Options vary from faction to faction but do not provide players with any gameplay advantages.
Head - Changes the character's head, changing it from either Helmet, Boonie Hat, etc.
Body - Changes the character's skin color for US and makes them sleeveless and giving the NVA and VC the option to be shirtless it also gives the South Vietnam forces the choice of rolled up sleeves.
