|Genre||Real-time strategy (mod)|
The 'Nam: Vietnam Combat Operations or Tiberian Sun Vietnam is a freely-downloadable conversion mod for Tiberian Sun. It aims to recreate company-sized combat operations set during the American phase of the Vietnam War, termed by Vietnamese as the Second Indochina War.
Overview[edit | edit source]
Players can choose to play as the US Marine Corps or the Vietcong (VC) and People’s Army of Vietnam (PAVN).
Marines can draw support from additional service branches like the Army for Special Forces (SF) troops, plus the Air Force and Navy for land and carrier-based air support, plus the allied Army of the Republic of South Vietnam (ARVN). The VC and PAVN can set-up and capture villages or go underground and fight from hidden tunnel systems. The game has over 100 units ranging from Marine riflemen to Vietcong guerrillas, all the way to water buffalo, villagers and even Indochinese tigers prowling through the deepest parts of the bush.
Among the many battles players can recreate are Con Thien, FSB Mary Ann, Hamburger Hill and the Tet Offensive. The game can be downloaded for free through The Nam's fan page. Whoever wins, each battle will surely test your mettle as a field-grade combat commander.
