Nice game tried it for first time.

It is 1965 and the US ground war in Vietnam is in full swing. As a US Army commander, wage a counter-insurgency (COIN) war to secure the Ia Drang valley, on the border with Cambodia.

Congrats on nice game!

I tried it out and on first game looked oh so easy, then enemy showed all went to hell, restarted thought this time I am doing better, then politics got in the way.

It's very addictive and highly fun. I am starting find my way in what I describe as very simple looking but complicated game.

Me too! Very nice experience with fighting in the green hell! Currently one of my favorite games. :D

Surprisingly my first two games I lost...but now it works... 'Rolling Thunder'... :twisted:


Possible additions:

-Underground warfare with tunnel systems and bunkers
-Maps with river inside to have additional transport and recon with patrol boat units
-Strategic bombing with B52 every 5...X rounds to clear some hidden units in the jungle
-Counter air strikes from NVA with random attack missions over the battlefield

Is there a fixed date for publish the sequel/addon '66?

I agree with all..Nice game.Seems easy at first but deceptively so.I'm a Marine veteran of Khe Sanh and I find the FOW accurately makes it feel a lot more realistic as far as a game can be
