Vietnam is a polyglot of minorities to include several such as the Montagnards who still operated an ancient hunter-gatherer economy. These tribesmen were often at odds with their urban countrymen but fought as irregulars for both sides.

Current:

Tran Ngoc Chau was a former member of the Viet Minh who due to his Buddhist views changed sides and distinguished himself as an innovative administrator and counterinsurgency tactician. He devised “census-grievance teams” to establish the first benign government presence in villages contested by the VC, and thereby gain information on VC infrastructure—often in the face of local Viet Minh resistance tradition and therefore pro-VC sentiment.

Oh yeah, meant to say to use 3 troops to sweep into Kien Hoa. Actually, also use 2 troops to sweep into Kien Giang (all from Can Tho). The ranger that is used to raid into Quang Tin comes from Da Nang.

US plays the unshaded event. Two US Bases are moved from Out of Play to Available, and ARVN gains six resources.

Current:

A key military tactic is to find and fix the enemy to eliminate him. In general, the VC and NVA had superior tactical intelligence on the location of COIN forces and, when faced with superior numbers, would often avoid contact.

US Assaults Pleiku-Darlac, removing VC Guerrilla and base.

Current:

The Gulf of Tonkin incident (Event 1) spurred Chinese and Soviet aid to North Vietnam with various forms of military hardware. One of the key AAA (anti-aircraft artillery) assets was the 57mm AZP S-60 with a range of 1,500 meters. While highly inaccurate, when fired in volume against fighter aircraft making low-level bombing runs or against low-flying helicopters, its heavy caliber round was very lethal.
