as the title says. Suggestions are very welcome.

As I use the British Airborne as Congo Mercenaries I wanted to have some different ideas.

Maybe some French for Indochina?

I saw US WW2 Airborne being used for Koreans in Vietnam…no idea how valid that is, but they looked good.

I was going to say you can probably stick them in any US friendly Asian country.

Tough to use as French--the jump uniforms don't really look like the French TAP uniforms, but I suppose if you painted them.

Other big problem is the weapons. No MAT-49s or MAS-36 carbines.

the French used a lot of US equipment. The early olive green TAP uniforms are very similar to the US M43 uniform. They also used M1 Garands and M1 Carbines. So I don't see a big problem.

SMERSH mooks in disguise for infiltration.

Only a crack secret agent might identify them by their old-fashioned kit.

Generic banana republic government troops?
