Campaign Series Vietnam: ALPHA Graphics: SCENARIO DESIGN
New scenario:

Off with a Bang - Battle of Bu Dop
29 November, 1967
[Bu Dop, Binh Phuoc Province, South Vietnam]: [H2H/SIDE A][HIS][CSL]: Bu Dop Special Forces Camp is a former U.S. Army and Army of the Republic of Vietnam base in Bu Dop District, Binh Phuoc Province near the Vietnam-Cambodia border. It was strategically placed near the upper Song Be River reaches as it passed near the border, as this area was a known heavily used infiltration route for the People's Army of Vietnam (PAVN) to bring supplies to War Zone D. While the 9th PLAF Division began withdrawing from Loc Ninh, elements of the 5th PLAF Division were massing near Song Be town, some forty kilometres to the east. The 275th Regiment arrived from War Zone D in southern Phuoc Long Province to join the 88th Regiment, now attached to the 5th Division. The second phase of the PAVN Military Region 10’s campaign to improve the security of Communist lines of communications into III Corps was about to unfold. A large number of Communist troops building fortifications near Bu Gia Map, an abandoned hamlet twenty-eight kilometres northeast of Song Be that had a small airfield formerly used by the Special Forces. The Viet Cong was gearing up for a new campaign in Phuoc Long Province, with evidence supporting that view when part of the 275th Regiment attacked the South Vietnamese Army camp south of Song Be on November 25th. The fight lasted more than four hours, but later turned out, was a diversion. The real targets were Bo Duc, a district capital some twenty kilometres northwest of Song Be, and the neighboring Special Forces camp at Bu Dop, located two kilometres to the north of Bo Duc. On November 26th and 28th, Montagnard troops from Bo Duc observed unidentified enemy forces moving through the area and later on the 28th, the 2nd and 3nd Battalions of the 272d Regiment attacked the Bo Duc District headquarters, a fortified compound defended by a reconnaissance company from the South Vietnamese 5th Division, a company of Regional Forces soldiers, and two Popular Forces platoons. Viet Cong mortar fire prevented the Montagnard soldiers stationed at the nearby Bu Dop Special Forces camp from reinforcing the embattled district headquarters. The enemy attacked the compound from multiple directions to take advantage of his superior numbers and a group of Viet Cong troops fought its way through the southern perimeter and forced the defenders to regroup in the northern half of the compound. The U.S. adviser attached to the reconnaissance company called down napalm and 750-pound bombs a mere seventy-five metres from his location to prevent the enemy from overrunning the compound. The air strike landed on target, violently jarring the government soldiers in their bunkers but also killing many Viet Cong troops caught in the open. When the defenders saw the enemy waver, they counterattacked and drove him back into the jungle. Both Communist battalions broke contact around 0630. Allied reinforcements arrived during the afternoon of November 29th and consisted of two infantry battalions from the South Vietnamese 5th Division that took up defensive positions in the town, while the U.S. 1st Battalion, 28th Infantry, as well as Battery A/2nd/33rd Artillery, equipped with 105-mm. howitzers arrived and established a firebase at the northwestern end of the runway. The Viet Cong would test the American position later that night, starting with a barrage of 122mm rockets and mortars. [ALL][CSEE, Variable Objectives][1.00]

Shouldn't the LZ XRAY be less full of vegetation? the terrain looks the same all around?? It could be my perception from the Movie " When we were soldiers"

Keep in mind the scale, the hexes are 250 metres. The maps above are based on topo's from the time frame, which represent the area fairly accurately.

Unfortunately, I can't have a "partially" treed hex to give the illusion that you see in the movie.

The Omen - Battle of Ban Houei Sane

23 January, 1968
[Ban Houei Sane, Savannakhet Province, Laos]: [SIDE A][HIS][CSL]: . In April 1961, the newly created Bataillon Volontaire 33 'Elephant' Battalion of the Royal Lao Army arrived at Ban Houei Sane, after it was forced to retreat from the Tchephone area by People's Army of Vietnam (PAVN) and Pathet Lao forces. At Ban Houei Sane, the Laotians constructed new defensive positions with assistance from the Army of the Republic of Vietnam (ARVN)'s 1st Infantry Division. One year later, BV-33 began monitoring North Vietnamese movements along the Vietnam-Laotian border. In order to lure American combat units away from the major cities the North Vietnamese High Command decided to launch the first strike; on January 21st, 1968, the PAVN began their attacks on the Khe Sanh Combat Base, where six thousand U.S. Marines were stationed. As part of that major effort, the PAVN made the decision to knock out the small outpost of Ban Houei Sane once and for all, as the Royal Laotian Army's BV-33 was considered an important tool in the Allies' intelligence gathering effort. On the night of January 23rd, 1968, the 24th Regiment of the PAVN 304th Division began on their assault on the small Royal Lao Army outpost at Ban Houei Sane. The small outpost, defended by the 700 man Bataillon Volontaire (BV-33), was attacked by the the PAVN 3rd/24th Regiment, eventually supported by PT-76's tanks of the 198th Battalion. The PT-76 was a Soviet amphibious light tank ideally suited to reconnaissance and fire support roles. This was the first time the PAVN used these tanks in cooperation with an attack on a fixed position, which wouldn't bode well for the next target, the Lang Vie CIDG Camp only 15 kilometres away.

Looks Awesome Jason. Hope we are going to see the Battles for FSB Coral & Balmoral for the Aussies in May-June of 1968 with the introduction of Centurion tanks.

New scenario:

And So it Begins - The Hill Fights
24 April, 1967
[Khe Sanh, Quang Tri Province, South Vietnam]: [SIDE A][HIS][CSL]: While there were a small number of contacts made by 1st Battalion, 3rd Marines, and elements of 3d Reconnaissance Battalion, there was still no conclusive proof that the People's Army of North Vietnam (PAVN) occupied the hilly jungle terrain north of Khe Sanh in regimental or division strength, it was decided to reduce the Marine presence there as the fighting in the eastern part of Quang Tri was heavier. By the time all was said and done, come the beginning of February, Khe Sahn was defended by Company B, 1st Battalion, 9th Marines and a platoon from the 3rd Reconnaissance Battalion with a supporting artillery battery, which was a far cry from the original intention of defending Khe Sanh with at least a battalion. Apart from a firefight in February and a mortar attack on Khe Sanh on March 2nd shortly after the accidental bombing of Lang Vie village, activity around Khe Sanh had been relatively quiet. As the month progressed, an attempted probe by the PAVN on perimeter of Khe Sanh airfield, contacts were becoming more frequent with a major firefight happening on March 16th, which highlighted how dependent the Marines were on helicopter support as well as how the PAVN were capable of keeping large units concealed in the dense terrain around Khe Sanh until they were ready to attack. With this additional concerns, and with Route 9 being opened between Dong Ha and Khe Sanh, a convoy was sent to bolster the defences. Active patrolling was the norm for the garrison and April 24th started no differently with two platoons of B/1st/9th sweeping a complex of caves northwest of Hill 861. Additional forces were maneuvering towards Hill 700 to set up a mortar position to support the other two platoons. Elements of the PAVN 18th Regiment/325C Division were also lurking in the hills and today was the day they planned on revealing themselves starting a series of battles that would become known to the Marines as the Hill Fights.

New scenario:

Special K - The Hill Fights
25 April, 1967
[Khe Sanh, Quang Tri Province, South Vietnam]: [SIDE A][HIS][CSL]: April 24th found B Company/1st Battalion/9th Marines attempting to secure Hill 861 after the 2nd Platoon was taken under fire. The Company was dispersed and on opposite sides of Hill 861 where a company sized unit of the PAVN 18th Regiment was dug in. On a tactical level, then, one could conclude that the Marines had received the worst of the fight on 24 April. The commanding General concluded, however, that the actions of Company B had forced the NVA to reveal that they were staging men and supplies for a potential major attack on Khe Sanh in the coming days. With this, it was determined the real fight was to be at Khe Sanh and addition forces were to be sent immediately. Company K, 3rd Battalion, 3rd Marines were flown in after the fog lifted during the late morning of April 25th and immediately started to head towards Hill 861 to link up with B/1st/9th. Both companies would then attack and clear Hill 861. As Company K/3rd/3rd advanced, F Battery with 105mm and 155mm howitzers were prepping the top of the hill. Once reaching their jumping off positions on Hill 861, Company K took the initiative and had started their assault against Hill 861. Unknown to them was that the 18th Regiment had sent reinforcements to the area during the previous evening and were well fortified on the hill where the preparatory fires seemed to have little effect.
