1-908282 various WARGAMES ILLUSTRATED:ISSUE #282 APRIL 2011 Included free with this issue of Wargames Illustrated is the 40-page Intellegence Handbook Tropic Lightning

Tropic Lightning allows you to refight the big battles of the war
in Vietnam. Not little skirmishes, but the major battles where
both sides strove to the utmost to inflict a serious defeat on the enemy and win the war.

The war in Vietnam was unlike anything the US Army had
prepared for. The enemy were lightly-equipped infantrymen
using guerilla tactics in a land full of mountains, jungles, paddy fields and river deltas. The US Army was equipped to fight a nuclear war in Europe with heavy tanks, armoured infantry, helicopter gunships, and lots of firepower.

The resulting clash stretched both sides to the limit. American
firepower and mobility gave them a decisive advantage once
they located the enemy. Therein lay the problem, locating the
enemy. The Vietnamese guerillas could often choose where and when to fight, but faced an up hill battle to inflict a serious
defeat on the American forces and suffered heavy casualties
with every attempt.

Pit your cunning against overwhelming firepower. Fight smart
to bring your firepower to bear and avoid being overrun. Search for the enemy in the jungles and paddies. Find them
and destroy them.
