Panzer Grenadier (Modern)
Vietnam: Khe Sanh 1968
In January 1968, the 325th Division of the People’s Army of Vietnam began a series of attacks against the U.S. Marines defending the Khe Sanh Combat Base in Quang Tri Province in northern South Vietnam. The siege continued until July, when a relief column fought its way through (Operation Pegasus) and the Marine garrison withdrew, destroying the base behind them.
Vietnam: Khe Sanh 1968 is a game based on the battles for Khe Sanh and those in Quang Tri Province in the first half of 1968. The People’s Army of Vietnam (PAVN, usually known as the NVA to American troops), National Liberation Front (known to the Americans as the Viet Cong, or VC), U.S. Marine Corps, U.S. Army and Army of the Republic of Vietnam (the South Vietnamese Army, or ARVN) are all present in 40 scenarios organized in our popular story arc format, with plentiful historical context and battle games to tie the scenarios together.
The game system is the same as that in Panzer Grenadier (Modern): 1967 Sword of Israel: if you’ve played that game, you already know how to play this one. If you’ve played any Panzer Grenadier game (our World War II series), you pretty much know how to play this one, too. The maps are divided into hexagons, each representing a space 200 meters across. Units represent platoons of tanks and infantry, batteries of artillery and anti-tank or anti-aircraft guns, and flights of three to five helicopters or aircraft.
Khe Sanh 1968 includes four new maps (compatible with any others in the series, including Panzer Grenadier and Infantry Attacks) plus 517 die-cut and silky-smooth playing pieces.
