That would be incredible. I am really impressed by the current efforts of the Leatherneck Simulations studio team and the other third party teams, as well. Speaking of Vietnam, the Belsimtek F-86 would make a good Vietnam era DACT stand in for the Mig-17.

I'm not any kind of map maker but there are still lots of traces of old bases in Vietnam.

Camp Radcliffe

LZ English

The question I have is whether or not a map can be made from say 1969 data without all the development since then.

FSX has the very thorough Vietnam War Project http://vietnamwar.project.free.fr/ with over 100 airfields, additional aircraft etc. With this and the recommended terrain mesh installed it makes for very good flying from a historical perspective. It is obviously lacking some of the advantages of DCS however.

A Vietnam war mod would rock but it would need to be like Armas mods so you would want it to be a separate mod from the usual DCS to make it easier for players to fly mp. They could with the same units also do a cold war mod for Europe.

I don't see why not, there are maps out there.

If you like to look at a few check out these sites.

I know I've posted on this before, however DCS World would be PERFECT for a Vietnam war scenario, particularly wrt using FACs. I guess we have to decide whether we're after the North Vietnam air war or South Vietnam air war, which were vastly different ie.

NV air war
- flown by F105s/F4s/A6s/F100s (initially I think)
- included Wild Weasel flights (F105s)
- primarily bombing of industrial or other hard targets
- air combat (Mig 17/19/21)
- anti air (AAA/SAM)
- required A2A refueling

SV air war
- primarily CAS
- flown by F100/A1/A6
- heavy use of FAC a/c (O1, OV10, O2)
- no air combat or SAMs, little AAA
- heavy use of helicopters (UH1, AH1)

Unless we have a map big enough to incorporate both scenarios.

This would be so awesome. Just need to start getting the rights to some good old CCR in order to be authentic.

Voted yes, the aircraft are fun to learn but without an immersive, period backdrop the interest soon wains.

New Chopper > Vietnam Map > Yet Anther Fixedwing.

Belsimtek is the only 3rd party developer that has focused on helos (we're very fortunate that they're so skilled at it too, cause could have been very different ...!).
Expand on that niche, please. A LittleBird, maybe?

ED's focus on WWII isn't going to bring anything for the rottorheads either, that's for sure!

you list a lot of a/c but you for get the carrier stations and the A-4 Skyhawk that was there the whole war. It flew north and south both navy, marine corps. I too would love a vietnam DCS map. just hope it comes before i get to old to fly in it.

Apparently you weren't alive at the time like many of us.

These were very bad times indeed!
