Tour Of Duty
The Vietnam War defined a generation, whether it was through service in Vietnam or opposition to the war. The war in Vietnam remains one the bloodiest wars since the Second World War.

Tour Of Duty
Rifle Platoon (ANZAC) (VAN702)
The cocksure Australians did not know the meaning of defeat, refusing to give ground even when ridiculously outnumbered and surrounded at Long Tan. The New Zealanders were less brash, but equally determined to hold their ground.

The Medic Team
Rifle Platoon (ANZAC) (VAN702) Rifle Platoon (ANZAC) (VAN702)
The Medic Team in Flames Of War Vietnam
The company medics treat the wounded and prepare them for medevac, freeing the combat troops from needing to care for their wounded. They tend to be unusually brave as the wounded are relying on them to keep working, no matter how dangerous the situation.


Medic teams are Independent teams. As non-combatants, they cannot Shoot and do not fight in assaults. If assaulted, a Medic team will break off at the earliest opportunity.

Saving the Wounded
Every company has a small medical detachment to care for its wounded. Unfortunately, in an intense battle, they receive far more casualties than they can adequately treat.

Once each turn during the Shooting Step, a Medic team can treat one team within 2”/5cm that has a Wounded marker. Roll a die.

¦ On a result of 3+, the wounded are cared for and the survivors patched up enough to fight again. Remove the Wounded marker.

¦ Otherwise, the survivors are too badly wounded or shook up to fight again. The team is Destroyed and removed from the game. Teams Destroyed in this way do not count as Destroyed when determining if a platoon has More Teams Destroyed than Still Fighting for Platoon Morale Checks, but neither are they still operational.


Wounded Medics
When a Medic team is Wounded, immediately roll a die.

¦ On a score of 3+, the team treats its wounded and carries on.

¦ Otherwise it is Destroyed and removed as normal.

SLR Teams
The primary weapon of ANZAC riflemen was the SLR (Self-loading Rifle), a similar weapon to the American
M14. This was backed up with an M60 GPMG (General Purpose Machine-gun), an M79 grenade launcher (the
Wombat Gun to some), and M72 LAW disposable antitank rockets, giving the section impressive firepower.


SLR teams are MG teams (see page 114 of the rulebook). As such they have ROF 3, reduced to ROF 2 when Pinned Down, or ROF 1 when moving. If they do not shoot as an MG team, they may shoot their M72 LAW anti-tank rockets instead.

Assembling The Medic Team
Position the prone causality figure (figure D) and the kneeling medic figure (figure E) together as these figures are intended to work together. See James’ painted medic team above for an example of how these two figures work together. The Medic team is modelled on one of the medium four-hole bases included in the blister pack, therefore used the scenic base plugs and a extra rifleman figure to fill the remaining spaces available on the base.
