IA must be the kindest Army in the world if they are using flood lights and megaphones to turn back enemy troops. This technique is sometimes used against illegal immigrants and escaping convicts.

The French, who were a significant naval power in that region, called the region itself Indochina and the sea "la mer de l'indochine", given the strong Indian culture coming from the west and Chinese influence coming from the east.
