RE: JTCS - Viet Nam
It's a first-day purchase for me. I really enjoy the Mideast game. I'm a WW2 guy too, but I've really dug-in and learned about the Arab-Israeli Wars. The 1948 and 1956 wars are more like small WW2 actions than modern wars. The Israeli invasion of Lebanon is an untapped area for more scenarios. I've designed a number of scenarios and really enjoy them. Although Israel won the War decisively, many of the battles between Syrian forces and the IDF were hard-fought. Lebanon was more about ambush warfare and positional mountain warfare than it was about massive modern armies slugging it out.
I've enjoyed the DG/VN mod but I really look forward to the new scenarios, maps, and Lua functionality in the Vietnam release. Modern warfare is deadly and I think the CS MiddleEast reflects the capriciousness of the modern battlefield. I hope Vietnam depicts the unique scale and challenges soldiers faced during the Vietnam conflicts.
Thank you for all of the hard work the development team has put in over the years. Can't wait for CS Vietnam!
