Back Door
Blackie

Somewhere in Vietnam, May 20 1967, Hypothetical: This is a beginner scenario.  By that I mean that there are all sorts of “support stuff” to use, so that a beginner can get the feel of the game. It should be played as the US player with FOW ON. The idea is the NVA have brought in some armor and have moved down a poorly protected, insignificant road. The US force scrambles to put together a small force, with lots of support, to hold up the NVA until some armor can be found.  Download..

Pick Up Time
Blackie

4th Dec 1967. Hypothetical: After spending the previous night and day in ambush positions, 2 platoons are making their way back to their LZs. Pickup is scheduled for 1845hrs at the main LZ near the village of Trung Ai, with an alternate to the south east. The last report from the lift was that there could be some delay, as some of the “slicks” needed refuelling from another mission, but they will send what they can, when they can. This scenario is best played as the US, and makes use of an exit hex, units must be flown out through this to score.  Download.

Long and Winding Road
Blackie

Nov 19th 1968, Hypothetical: Highway 19 was the major supply route from Qui Nhon to Pleiku, as such, it was one of the most contested pieces of real estate in Vietnam. As many as 20 convoys a day made their way along it. US forces built strongpoints and firebases to discourage VC and NVA ambushes, unfortunately they did not! As the commander of an NVA reinforced platoon, you have been tasked to attack a convoy reported by the local VC to have left Firebase Chain at first light. You are late, your blocking force is in position, but the main force must get to the positions selected by the VC, within 20 minutes. You have ordered your men to wait until the blocking force stops the lead trucks, then to occupy their positions and inflict as much damage as possible. You should withdraw to your rendezvous before the Americans have time to react. Designer Note: Play as the NVA with FOW ON, also can be PBEM, exit hexes are used in this scn.  Download.

Skirmish on Route 27
Ken Talley

Company A on a multi-day patrol along Route 527 has been directed to search a village suspected of being a supply dump for a local VC outfit.  This is definitely VC country but they typically fire a few shots and fade away.  Secure and search the village.  Download.

Dawn Assault
Ken Talley

F company had settled into three separate platoon lagers yesterday evening.  It had been a long and uneventful hump through the paddies but they were almost home.   Early the next morning,  the calm was broken by frantic radio calls for support as waves of VC swept towards 1st and 2nd platoon’s positions.  F companies CO immediately requested artillery support and contacted G company just south of their position for help.  After a quick conversation with battalion, E company would also be sent as soon as helicopters could be lined up.  But there are a lot of VC out there.  Would F company be able to hold out until help arrived?   Download.

Find and Destroy NVA Base Camp
Marc Rosser

(Hypothetical, but very similar to what the 1st Cav might have experienced during the Ia Drang Campaign of late 1965 / early 1966.)  This is the first in what will hopefully be a series of scenarios honoring the efforts of the 1st Cavalry Division in Vietnam.  In this scenario, one battalion of the 1st Cav is air assaulting into a suspected enemy base camp area.  As is typical of these types of battles, the 1st Cav has plenty of support fire at its disposal, especially early in the scenario.  An attempt has also been made to simulate the limitations associated with putting a force that large on the ground.  Designed to be played only as Allies if against the AI.  Stay on your toes!!!

The  Battle for Hill 43
Matt Peckham

August 18, 1965.  Operation Starlite was the first major U.S. ground combat of the Vietnam War.  A VC deserter revealed that a 1500-strong main force VC 1st Regiment was planning to attack the airfield at Chu Lai.  The U.S. response–a proactive combined airborne, ground, and amphibious assault on the VC force bivouaced at the village of Van Tuong 12 miles south of Chu Lai–was swift and effective.  A western containment force of LZs Red, White, and Blue, was designated to land 2000 yards apart, approximately 1 mile inland from the coast.  LZs Red and White encountered only light resistance, but at LZ Blue, the assault force landed almost on top of the VC 60th BTL, entrenched on nearby Hill 43.  After a failed attempt by 1 platoon to secure the hill, H Company received armored support and moved in.  Download.

LZ Hereford – Operation Crazy Horse

Tom Konczal

21 MAY 1966 1330 Hours Vinh Thanh Valley, NE of An Khe

Mortar Platoon, Company C, 1st Battalion (Air Mobile), 12th Cavalry was inserted by helicopter to LZ Hereford, located northeast of An Khe near the Song Ba River. The platoon set up the mortar and fired a few rounds. Instead of digging-in or clearing fields of fire, the men took it easy. Helicopters were inbound when mortar platoon members saw a number of enemy soldiers five meters away, and opened fire with their M16s. As if by signal, other enemy located on a hill about 300 meters away poured a hail of machinegun, mortar and rocket launcher fire onto the platoon’s position. The platoon’s 81mm mortar was knocked out almost immediately, and the platoon, taking heavy casualties, called for help. download

    Is it possible also to ZIP all these for one download and install? 😛

  2. TheBigRedOne says:

    Sure, if you DL all of them, put them into one big folder and send it back to me. Consider it an extra credit project!
