Allied military operations in South Vietnam have uncovered caches of enough arms and stores in a recent three week period to supply a 10,000 man communist division for more than three months. Elements of the U.S. 1st Cavalry Division fighting 90 kilometers northwest of Saigon, just 25 kilometers from Cambodia, discovered a deep-dug 30-bunker complex crammed with 45 tons of food and ammunition. It included quantities of small arms ammunition, shells, mortar, and recoilless rifle rounds, rockets, and explosives; mostly of Communist Chinese manufacture. South Vietnamese Rangers on operations in the Mekong Delta have seized 300 automatic weapons. These guns are believed to be of West German origin. Military authorities estimate these losses to the enemy to be the worst since the beginning of the war, with significant impact on communist ability to indicate that most communist war material is transported and infiltrated on the backs of oppressed laborers and enemy soldiers.
