Only the VC (Southern sympathizers living in South Vietnam). The USSR/Red China supplied the war goods. It was part of Hanoi's strategic plan to gain the "sympathy" of "the whole world's watching" through world wide televised combat footage, etc. by fighting alone against the US. North Vietnam would be the "underdog" fighting alone against the world's super power...America. A strategy which ultimately paid off for Hanoi.

Two separate nations were created in 1954; a NORTH and a SOUTH Vietnam. TWO separate nations were fighting against each other in Vietnam-A North and a South.
