About General ChowEdit

General Chow ran the P.O.W. camp in North Vietnam where the members of the A-Team were held. He starved his prisoners, but his cook, Lin Duk Coo, would sneak them food whenever possible.

When not working for the military, General Chow was a drug supplier. When Thomas Angel was assigned to his camp, Chow gave the prisoner preferential treatment in order to set up a "China White" heroin distribution line with Angel's father, "Big Tom" Angel.


John Fujika played General Vin Chow in another Stephen J. Cannell show: The Greatest American Hero.
