What was the magazine capacity of the Thompson Tommy gun carried in in Vietnam by the US army?

Thompsons saw very limited use in Vietnam, and were mostly carried by forces which weren't American - the US Army used the M3 'grease gun'. The Navy and many second line units did use them, though, as did non-US forces in the region. They used them with 30 round detachable box magazines.

The 30rd stick magazines were used by the US army in Vietnam
