Announcement (kind of) Vietnam war mod !

Postby Darkmil » Fri 30 Jan 2015 13:46

Hi everybody !
I plan to make a Viet-nam war mod (After the release of the DLC 3 if it ever happens)
so first some music



Then a sum-up of what will be in.
Nations :
-USA List
- ANZAC [included in US deck as infantry]
-France [not making it in first release]

-USSR [included in NVA deck as infantry, support and air force]
-North Viet-nam list
-China [included in NVA deck as infantry and air force]

It won't exactly be "Viet-nam" war France will be in because indochina, USSR too because will just assume they'll decide to fight and not only support NVA same goes for China.

Still I don't know what unit should be in (I don't know this era very well) so I'd like you to suggest some units.
So what I need firstly :
NVA :
    Pretty much everything...
USA :
    -Infantry
    -Recon infantry

I'll make some list for you to see what unit I have chosen. And please can you prioritize unit which can be accurately depicted (not the exact model but still something looking alike) using already existing game models (Propeller plane are a no-go for instance)...

ANZAC should be in, mostly as an infantry force. A lot of the fame of the Aussie and NZ SAS comes from jungle warfare, so they should definitely be in. Alternately, you could just add ANZAC units to the US as they were mostly a supporting force.

No problem. I think ANZAC will be available in US Decks.
(If you can provide me a list of unit for ANZAC it would be great though (Name and weaponery))

Woah, you can't forget South Korea!
And what is USSR gonna have besides planes and maybe AA?

Plane-wise, we also need the F-100D, A-37, F-5. And how about a recon plane like the RF-4?

I'm not finished, F-104, A-4, EA-6 and F-101 will be in too.

For USSR I have two choices :
  • A complete army, For gameplay purpose I just assumed they would help NVA as much as they can.
  • Only support, aircrafts, SF's/Paratroopers
I don't know yet.

For SK, I don't know... Maybe with the same role as ANZAC, and if I have time as a proper army (Though it will be long...)

And recon planes need testing but could definitely be in

Delta Force in V-150s or Chinooks
US Marines in Hueys or Phrogs
LAAD Redeye in M113

M163 Vulcan
M109 (the earliest US version)
M110
M108

M577 CV
M114 CV
Jeep CV
M48 (or M60) CV
FOB (obviously)

not sure if the Super Chinook served, but it could stand in as a standard chinook.
M621 Logistical

M113 ACAV
Navy SEALS
AH-1J
M114
NM113 (as a stand in for a recon M24 Chaffee)
M551 Sheridan

I'm not at my PC ATM so I can't check the in game designations, but most are pretty stand in. When I do get home later today, I will search for other infantry to stand in. If you need anything else, just say :D

Well the magic of modding is I can add more than just that... Like grenadiers, green berets and other units like that... And that's when you suggest some cool things ;) (Hope your searches will be interestings :twisted: )

That and the M107, HAWK (on 727 chassis) Chaparral (also on M727 chassis).

For the LOG tab I think I'll just reuse your list as it is. (unless someone adds something)

And recon seems complete (maybe some more infantry in this section could be good)

As much as I'm fond of France's Indochina War, there isn't much you can do with it, appart from:
- M8 AMC (aka Greyhound ou M8 Panserbil norvégienne dans RD).
- M24
- M36 Jackson (brought in Indochina in 1951 to face a possible Chinese invasion).
- Chasseurs (with LRAC turned off).
- Réservistes (with LRAC turned off).
- Hussards (with LRAC turned off).
- Sapeurs
- Groupe de Cmdt
- Truck (the US M35 would be the closer one).
- French or American-design jeeps with up to a 12,7mm as armament.
- GMX M450.
- no helicopters nor planes ingame fits the era. We only used piston-engined ones back then.

And ANZAC & SK should be included before France.
