NVA Turn 10.
The NVA assault the two remaining US commanders:
With their deaths, the destruction of the US 2nd/7th Air Cav battalion is now complete:
The latest Victory tally:
A US, Side A Major Defeat for sure!
At scenario's end, a surprise:
US forces from LZ Columbus attempt a rescue. Too little, too late!
Note how the US helos have by now exited the scene. (Returned to base for refueling, no doubt.)
In Real Life, although the battle was fierce and the US 2nd/7th Air Cav verged on annihilation, in the end they managed to survive, just barely.
In this playtest, the human played NVA side did indeed wipe out the AI played US 2nd/7th Air Cav.
Not an unreasonable result. In human vs. human PBEM (or perhaps H2H) play, we would expect the US to do better, play more like Real Life, with the 2nd/7th escaping total destruction. With a human played US side vs. an AI played NVA, the US would expect to do even better, of course.
NOTE: A few glitches here and there, all of this is still in BETA. But the game is by now very far along. Release is by no means soon, but we draw ever closer!
