B52s that rained More than 1,700 tons of explosives on the devastated provincial capital 60 Miles North of Saigon. It was the wars heaviest concentration of b52s. The . Command reported one american adviser killed a second wounded and two Small air Force spotter planes shot Down in action around an Loc and Chon Thanh a District capital 15 Miles to the South. Two of the four crewmen aboard the planes were missing. The North vietnamese appeared determined to turn an Loc into another Quang Tri the northernmost provincial capital that fell May i after similar heavy assaults. An Loc under siege since april 7, is 85 per cent destroyed but its capture by the North vietnamese would be another blow to prestige of the Saigon and president Nix no a Vietnam nation program.

Mining of seven North vietnamese ports. That is the opinion of Veteran . Military and civilian specialists who also believe the soviet air transport system is inadequate to handle a massive Long Range heavy cargo Airlift to North Vietnam on a sustained basis. A the mining will not be enough to tighten the screws so much that the North vietnamese cannot carry on their Campaign in South Vietnam a one analyst said.

In the More than three years that North Vietnam was free of heavy bombing engineers and labourers greatly expanded North Vietnam a transportation system. A redundancy is the key a an american specialist said. A where there used to be one Bridge there now sometimes Are three. Where there used to be one Road there May be five. They use Pontoon Bridges and according to american experts the communists take account of the loss Factor when they Send through supplies. Thus officials said if the North vietnamese want to get two tons through they actually move about five tons and write off the balance. Russia East european communist countries and red China have been shipping about 200,000 tons of supplies a month to North Vietnam by sea and another 22,000 tons by rail.

A if China is viewed in the Light of its own past the bottle is half full and rapidly tacked and there were Many civilian casualties.
