The tank by the tunnel is an M-41 hull. I.e., a Vietnamese Army tank. The oldest tanks the U.S. had in Vietnam were the M-48 (one of which is correctly labelled). The ARVNs were equipped with the lighter M-41. Of course, to label it an ARVN tank, or to leave the old ARVN markings on, would go against the the idea that all Vietnamese were fighting the Americans, which was definitely not the case.
