Hammer, Anvil and Steel

Feb 14, 1970,  Hypothetical,  VC Transit through an American Combined Arms Task Force’s TAOR —–

SCENARIO NOTES: This scenario uses multiple VC Exit Objectives. Although A.I. has been programmed for this scenario, tactical  possibilities in this scenario are far wider than the one path that  is programmed into the A.I. and some things can’t be modeled (such  as having the U.S. “Hawk Team” put their weapons on “Hold Fire” on turn one so they won’t reveal themselves until they decide the time is right) .  If you want to play vs the A.I., you should take the Americans.  Download.
