The new book helps bring you into the fighting between the US and their enemies during the period. As mentioned above, it is also powered by the Team Yankee engine so if you’re familiar with that system you will have a nice transition to this. It’s very easy to learn and supports playing Historical games without too much hassle.
As well as a book, the team at Battlefront have put together a set of plastic boxes to support the launch. We start off with the Black Horse Armoured Cavalry Troop.
This is for your US army to bring to the tabletop and comes with M113 Armored Personnel Carriers, M551 Sheridans, and an M48 Patton. It’s a heavily armoured assault on your enemies that is focused on wiping them out before they get a chance to react.
If you would prefer playing as the PAVN Forces on the tabletop then you have access to the K-2 Ironclad Battalion instead.
Inside this set, you get your hands on the T-54 Tanks and ZSU-57-2 so you have some answers to the armour of the Americans as well as something to watch the skies too. You will need to be looking up as the US are also bringing the Air Mobile Air Cavalry into play. It wouldn’t be Vietnam without Helicopters…
As well as three different types of helicopters, you will also get a squad of troops that you can drop onto the tabletop. Infantry can get a lot done in games, securing vital objectives and more. Hopefully, we’ll see Battlefront repackage and create more options for you going forward on the infantry front for both sides.
Are you going to be giving this a go?
