Will American units have access to generous air and artillery support?

I was reading a blog where the blogger was playing Tillers Vietnam Squad battles titles and
he was saying in those scenarios there was a lack of artillery and air support that felt
ahistoric. How will this game tackle this?

The Huge consume of artillery and air bombing didn’t help US to break Vietcong
So it’s not so important

Most US involvement scenarios do have artillery and air strikes and in many cases helicopter gunships and/or armed AC aircraft.

The Vietcong and NVA were temporarily wiped out as a fighting force after the 1968 Tet offensive. The Paris Peace Talks allowed them to reinforce unhindered. But yes, I'm sure air power will not be a silver bullet in the upcoming game. That is for the arcade titles.

Temporary indeed. There are ample battles post Tet that will be portrayed and more so when the US left.

Uhhh....The TET Offensive of 1968 destroyed the VC. After that the war was mainly fought by the NVA, who unlike the VC were actual soldiers.

I'm not arguing that point at all, just saying there was still lots of combat action to be had after Tet '68.
