Operation: Letters Home

Inlägg av Enfisk » sön 04 okt 2020, 17:11

U.S. troop numbers peaked in 1968 with President Johnson approving an increased maximum number of U.S. troops in
Vietnam at 549,500. The year was the most expensive in the Vietnam War with the American spending US$77.4 billion on
the war. The year also became the deadliest of the Vietnam War for America and its allies with 27,915 ARVN soldiers killed
and the Americans suffering 16,592 killed compared to around two hundred thousand PAVN/VC killed. The deadliest week
of the Vietnam War for the U.S. was during the Tet Offensive specifically 11-17 February, during which period 543 Americans were killed in action and 2,547 were wounded source: wikipedia

The year 1968 saw major developments in the Vietnam War. The military operations started with an attack on a US base by
the North Vietnamese People’s Army of Vietnam (PAVN) and the Viet Cong (VC) on January 1, ending a truce declared by the
Pope and agreed upon by all sides. At the end of January, the PAVN and VC launched the Tet Offensive.
As you all know by now we have lost all communication with the veterans of 3rd platoon. This happened in a most
uncertain way. What we do know, is that the territory was supposed to be cleared from hostile troops according to
the latest reports. The 3rd platoon had just received orders to push forward on their digged in positions. A couple
of Hueys were supposed to transport the first part of the platoon when they most likely were shot down by rpg fire.
Recon teams has not confirmed this but the smoke pillars over the trees ahead might testify that.

Your mission is clear - Search for any evidence of what have happened to 3rd platoon. We have three objectives that need to be handled at the same time. Three patrols will leave from here to three different positions.
THE SMOKE PILLARS: Investigate and rescue any surviving pilots.
LAST DIGGED IN POSITION: Investigate 3rd platoon last known position
THE VILLAGE: Investigate and interrogate villagers. They might know something.

Betyg 5/5 Hueys från VL.

Med hänsyn till allt strul så framför VL info om saker som funkade.

Ammolåda Arsenal gav åtkomst till alla
Helikoptrarna fungerade tillfredsställande

VL hann inte riktigt nyttja allt men fortsätter gärna att utvärdera och testa funktioner och helikoptrar löpande så ge oss gärna en heads up så hjälper vi gärna till 😎👌
