Hi tootall and happy holidays to everyone! I've been in the mountains with the fam for Christmas, so didn't have access to my computer until now. So, my first real look at VN 65-75 was this morning, and it's most impressive. It's quite complex, so that may deter some, but I'm looking forward to unraveling its mysteries. The use of the OOB map, pioneered by Boco in "El Aurens" is an elegant solution to the problem of simulation of the escalation and de-escalation by US forces. The withdrawal of American and other interventionist forces was a problem I could never properly solve. It also allows appropriate delays in the arrival of replacement units without the excessive use of the high memory cost of the "delay" event. Use of industrial units as targets affecting NV production is something I experimented with, and including supply trucks on the Ho Chi Minh trail is a great addition. It gives the US player strategic targets that were critical during the actual conflict. Tech research and connected events look like they reproduce the major strategic options of the US government and military. I look forward to experimenting with the options for "Broadening the War" as you put it, although I struggle with the Johnson administration having such aggressive possibilities vis a vis Nixon. Johnson was far more concerned with limiting the scope of the conflict than Tricky Dick, despite Nixon's goal of winding down the war. The mix of VC Base Areas, Depots, Supply Trucks, NLF HQs, and Industrial targets, together with the unit variation on the US/SVN side gives a real insight to the complexity of Allied operations during the war. The various research choices and strategic military options look like they will represent the grand strategy of the US command very well. Finally, it looks like you've utilized the many new features of the Nameless One's Patch Project fully. It looks like another outstanding contribution to the collective work of our little community. Congratulations! Some questions: 1. Why does the F-4E have such a high attack factor relative to other US aircraft, more than even a B-52? (I realize the firepower is higher, but still) 2. What is the thinking behind using units on the map to represent operational status in NV, Cambodia and Laos? 3. What is the "Ambush" unit in the Appendix (but not in the Units file)?
