Valle de Ia Drang : 1st Air Cav, 1965
Theme: Vietnam War
Vae Victis issue 28:
The game is designed by Franck Yeghicheyan and is a solitaire game which covers the 1965 battle in the Ia Drang River valley between NVA troops and the 1st Air Cavalry Division. The game uses area movement across a map that covers from Cambodia to Pleiku, turns lasting 2 days each, and company-level units. The player, as the US, has overwhelming firepower and mobility, but the NVA has stealth. The NVA uses dummy units to hide his actual deployment while the US (player) must search constantly and hope not to get caught in an ambush. There are extensive rules covering headquarters units/command and control, fatigue, CIDG, tactical air support, battalion cohesion, and of course air-mobile transport.
As with all Vae Victis games, the counters need to be cut out and mounted. Complete with English Rules.
