Pretty much static for VM, unwinnable for the CEFEO forces, even legionnaire paratroopers didn't make it.
Excellent exercise on attacking a fortified position. Vietnamese start pinned/disrupted which gives a rare feeling that artillery is of some use. Still, the scenario is well balanced as one can tell from the results.

French side has very little smoke and support, so don't burn it up too, early.
