Happy Friday all,
A fairly recent addition to my collection is this "Mobase II" piece.This design is uncommon,and not often seen.It is incountry made,and is a bit grungy.
I wasn't able to find much info about the unit;here is what I found:
Home for Task Force 116 Headquarters was PBR Mobile Base II (Mobase II), a floating barge complex. The base was constructed at Mare Island Naval Shipyard in Vallejo, California and then shipped to Vietnam on the deck of an LSD. The crew berthing quarters, helicopter pad, repair facilities, crane, etc. were then re-assembled at Nha Be. Later the barges were moved up river to a location near Tan Chau. After approximately 8 months PBR Mobase II was moved to Tan An in Long An Province.
