Vietnam Missions:
The Standard Rulebook Mission Adapted For Flames Of War Vietnam

Tour Of Duty, Battlefront’s new book on the Vietnam War, includes eight missions tailored specifically for Vietnam, but these aren’t the only missions available. The standard missions from the Flames Of War rulebook are equally applicable to Vietnam, along with special missions and scenarios you develop for your own games.

Welcome To The Jungle:
Using The Special Rules Of The People’s Army Of Vietnam
Many players are going to be surprised just how hard it is for the Free World forces to succeed in the new Vietnam, Tour Of Duty missions. The People’s Army of Vietnam (PAVN), the Nationalists, have a well tuned set of special rules to neutralise the technological and firepower superiority of their opponents. To bog them down, hit them from surprising directions, confuse, frustrate, and ultimately overcome them.

The Tiểu Đoan Thiết Giap or Ironclad Battalion allows a player to bring heavy metal to the North Vietnamese forces and represent the battles in Laos in 1971, the Spring Offensive of 1972 and subsequent conventional battles leading up to the fall of Saigon in 1975.

UH-1D Slick Templates UH-1D Slick Templates
The UH-1D Huey Slick is one of the most iconic vehicles of the Vietnam Conflict.  Because Slicks have been out of stock for the last several weeks, we wanted to make sure Vietnam players who need the ubiquitous choppers could get their troops to the LZ!  To that end, we’ve devised a stopgap solution until the Choppers are able to reach store shelves (Which should be in the next few weeks!).
 
To that end, we’ve devised a 1:1 scale printout of the Slicks, available for free. We know this isn’t half as cool as having a platoon of Slicks landing on your table top, but hope it will tide you over!

The People's Liberators:
Vietnamese People's Liberation Armed Forces
The media portrayal of the Vietnam War focuses almost exclusively on the guerilla operations of the Local Forces and the seemingly endless patrolling by the Free World forces operating against them. While Tour Of Duty, the Flames Of War handbook on the Vietnam War focuses on the larger-scale operations, this Intelligence Briefing looks at the Local Force battalions that fought the daily war against the US, ANZAC, and ARVN forces.

Props Forever!
The A-1H Skyraider In Vietnam
Few aircraft have the raw firepower and durability of the Douglas A-1H Skyraider. Derided for being a propeller-driven aircraft in the new Jet Age, the ‘Spad’ not only demonstrated that it had a mission to accomplish, it proved that there was still a place for ‘slow movers’. The Skyraider’s legacy paved the way for powerful modern attack aircraft like the venerable A-10 Warthog.

Prop Forever!: The A-1H Skyraider In Vietnam...

Painting The A-1H Skyraider
When I started sculpting this aircraft the first thing I did was to have a look at images of the real thing online and in books. They looked so cool that I decided once there was an actual resin model I’d really like to paint one, but couldn’t decide which colour scheme I liked best. The only real option was to paint two of them, one in US Navy and Marine colours and one in US Air Force colours!
