Maybe, but France has a complicated political and military arrangement with its colonies and to keep an unpopular war going they often use colonial troops from Angolia, etc.

Negritos from the Philippines? Dude you got your assumptions wrong. My country only sent a few non-combat troops for civil and medical operations the group was called Philippine Civic Action Group-Vietnam or PHILCAG-V. But in the Korean War, we had an expeditionary force of around 7,000 plus troops that participated in the Battle of Hill Eerie and the Battle of Yultong - it was a proud moment for us Filipinos - small and third world rate but warriors nonetheless. Sadly, the veterans of these actions are hardly remembered in my country. :-(

Red berets looks like Metro paras of some sort. But those rifles, judging by colour, look like bolt action MAS 36s; if they're French troops, shouldn't they be using semi-automatic MAS 49s?

actually, french paratroopers found the MAS36 to be more reliable to MAS49 in the wet Vietnam... :)

The French weren't involve when the US took over. Unless of course your team is planning to include the First Indochina War (1947 to 1954)! Since the title of the mod is not specific to the Second Indochina War. Both France and Vietnam at the early years of the First Indochina War were mainly using WW2 weapons and throughout the years, there was a slow transition to "modernize" 50s era weapons. It would be great to see French Foreign Legion, aside from the regular army, involve too! Wohoo!

If we show any thing which couldn't be present in this region at that time - it doesn't mean that we don't know the history. We'll keep the history as much as possible. We scan a lot of information about model, before it would be included in the unit-list - how many there were such models, how they were used, etc.
So don't worry. Everything will be historically correct :)

I did not mean to criticize or say anything offensive for that matter or to say that you don't know the history. It's just that most of the first batch of pictures shown were all related to the US Campaign in Vietnam. And in the description of the mod nothing was said that it included the 1st Indochina War. So it meant to us viewers that the mod was focusing on the US involvement in said region.
Now when the picture above was posted, we were all pleasantly surprised - and with the comments, it was obvious that everybody was wondering how there were French Units during the US Campaign. But then I realized that maybe the mod wasn't only for the US Campaign, but that it included the French Campaign too!!? Hence, my statement above. But you guys really surprised us today - a pleasant surprised to know that 2 wars in your mod are covered. - :-) ....and the French Campaign in Vietnam, is another feature MOW: Vietnam won't have! Excellent work guys! You are welcome to surprise everyday!

Still I heard the MAS-49 was well loved too since it had 10 rounds as oppose to the 5 rounds in the MAS-36 and was semi-automatic as oppose to being bolt action.

As opposed to getting fouled nearly instantly, especially during the jump landings.

5 rounds are better than having 10 unfirable rounds.

Jeez guys, come on. These are soldiers of the Corps Expéditionnaire Français en Extrême-Orient (French Far East Expeditionary Corps) which saw action in French Pacific colonies during the end of WW2 and the First Indochina War. Members of CEFEO were drawn up primarily from French colonial territories in the Caribbean, Africa and South-East Asia, so they are primarily not white except for the officer corps. There were also French Foreign Legion and Bataillon Français de l'ONU that fought in the Korean war present during the first Indochina conflict.
