The US Army, Marine Corps, and ARVN all have the same loadouts as one another. They roughly correspond to the positions of grenadier and anti-tank. MACV is mostly the same, but rather has a different handgun, and the addition of a medical kit, which adds the ability to perform as a medic as well as the aforementioned roles.
The opposite layout of the NVA and VC kits offers the same role as one of the two options offered to the US and ARVN kits, although the second layout performs a significantly different role of anti-air combat, wielding the only anti-air infantry weapon in the game.
- In the initial release, the US Heavy Assault had the M60 and LAW in the same kit. This proved extremely unbalanced and the 1.1 patch both altered the sniper-like accuracy of the M60 and swapped out the LAW for the M79.
