*Men of War: Vietnam* is a new game for the critically acclaimed series. The
new, story-driven campaign lets you taste the explosive mix of the jungle,
Hueys and rock-n-roll in 1968. The US campaign focuses on a team of elite
special ops soldiers, and each one of them has a personality.
The unit includes Sergeant John Merrill, machine-gunner Jim Walsh, sniper
Sonny Armstrong, grenade launcher operator Carl Dillan and combat engineer
Bill Kirby. In some missions they can count only on themselves, while in the
others they act together with regular US and South-Vietnamese troops. The
North Vietnam campaign tells the story of two Soviet military consultants and
two soldiers of the North Vietnam Army who are the only survivors of an
ambush prepared by the US troops. The task of getting back to the North
Vietnam territory is a difficult one – they have no means of radio
communication, no wheeled vehicles, and it’s too far to make it there on
foot. On their way these survivors get involved in a chain of bloodbath
engagements and find themselves in the dead center of the well-known Tet
Missions range from special operations (rescuing a shot-down pilot, escorting
a reporter, etc.) to full scale battles.
