The Australian Task Force of infantry, tanks and SAS with attached New Zealand units, was probably the most consistently successful formation in Vietnam. It had a high proportion of experienced regular soldiers who had recently fought in Malaya and Borneo, widely admired by the US forces for their professionalism and expertise in jungle fighting - using tactics quite different from the US Army. ANZAC advisors served with the ARVN forces and US Special Forces in Vietnam for a full ten years and were very influential - members of this Australian Army Training Team also won all four of the Victoria Crosses awarded for Vietnam.
