Setting

The Vietnam War was a conflict during the Cold War era that took place in Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia from November 1955 to the fall of Saigon in April 1975.

It was officially fought between the governments of South Vietnam and North Vietnam. The South Vietnamese Army was supported by the United States and its anti-communist allies, while the North Vietnamese Army was backed by the Soviet Union, China and their communist allies.

The Viet Cong, communist rebels aided by the North, fought a fierce guerrilla war against the United States and South Vietnamese forces. In the course of the war the U.S. Army conducted several search and destroy operations in the heart of the Vietnamese jungle.

The capture of Saigon by the North Vietnamese Army and the Viet Cong in April 1975 marked the end of the war.

Teams

Viet Cong

The Viet Cong was an insurgency in the South of Vietnam that fought the established anti-communist government, to unite the two Vietnams into one communist state.

It had a regular army but submerged into the civil population and used guerilla tactics to stage attacks. The Viet Cong relied on their own tactics, including ambushes, raids, sniping, tunnel warfare as well as their tools, such as land mines and elaborate but deadly booby traps.

North Vietnam trained and provided military aid to the Viet Cong and sent them back to the South on the famous Ho Chi Minh trail that lead through Laos and Cambodia.

U.S. Army

The United States directed many combat operations deep inside the Vietnamese jungle to prevent the Viet Cong from overthrowing the capitalist government in South Vietnam.

Operations crossed into bordering areas of Cambodia and Laos, to stop North Vietnamese supply routes helping the Viet Cong. Throughout the war the U.S. Army had to repel various guerilla attacks and took heavy losses.

Direct involvement of the United States army ended in August 1973, top secret operations continued until the official end of the war in April 1975.

Classes

Each team features 6 player classes with a unique role on the battlefield.

Assault

The Assault class is fast paced and offensive.

U.S. Army soldiers received the necessary training to prepare them for Vietnam. They would patrol the jungle and villages locating enemy positions and destroy them. Throughout the war soldiers were airlifted deep into enemy territory, staying there for several weeks or months.

Viet Cong soldiers are native to the soil and trained by North Vietnam. They would submerge themselves into the civil population or hide in the jungle waiting to stage surprise attacks against enemy troops patrolling the area.

Medic

The Medic class can heal teammates and themselves.

U.S. Army medics are trained to quickly help injured soldiers in the heat of the battle. If not already there, they were dropped into the combat zones via helicopters taking wounded back to waiting ambulances, airlifted them directly back to field hospitals or evacuated them to bases in South-East Asia.

Viet Cong medics faced a hard task in trying to keep casualties to the minimum and keep wounded alive in the first vital hour after being injured. Their medical equipment is no match to their enemies and more than often they had to hide the injured in tunnels or in nearby villages to protect and aid them.

U.S. Embassy

At the beginning of the Tet Offensive on the morning of January 31, 1968, 19 Viet Cong sappers entered the embassy grounds through a hole in the wall and occupied the area for six hours. Two military police officers and a USMC soldier were killed during the fighting. Soldiers of the 101st U.S. Airborne Division conquered the area at noon and killed all Vietnamese invaders.

Siege of Hue

The Siege of Hue was part of the Tet Offensive, a large scale operation all across Southern Vietnam in 1968. After losing control of Hue it was later recapture by U.S. Army and ARVN forces. It was one of the bloodiest battles during the Vietnam War. The Tet Offensive was a big blow to the American interest in Vietnam. Even after regaining lost territories, the American public opinion about the war was at a all time low.

3rd Field Hospital

The 3rd Field Hospital is located in Saigon and was probably the best military hospital in all of Vietnam. Injured or sick soldiers were very lucky to be treated there.

Khe Sanh Combat Base

During the Vietnam War from January 21 to July 9, 1968 U.S. forces were defending the Khe Sanh Combat Base against the North Vietnamese People's Army. The battle was proclaimed a victory by the United States, although the combat base was abandoned after the battle. In this respect, Khe Sanh was a tactical US victory - but a strategic defeat.

Port of Qui Nhon

At the beginning of the Vietnam War in 1965 the Port of Qui Nhon, which was connected to railway, was upgraded with U.S. assistance to support military operations in the area. Throughout the war the North–South railway was a target of bombardments and sabotage by both North Vietnamese and Viet Cong forces.

Cho Lon Saigon

During the early hours of 31 January 1968 Vietcong launched several major attacks around Saigon in the first days of the Tet Offensive. The attacks were repulsed by ARVN and US forces, with the Viet Cong suffering heavy losses and causing substantial damage to the densely populated area of Cho Lon.
