[Battalion, Vehicles, Helicopters, Support] 02 Jul 1967. During the summer of 1967, the Marines patrolled around their base at Con Thien near the DMZ looking for the enemy. The NVA massed on the border with significant resources looking to engage the Marines in a large battle. Operation Buffalo, the name the Marines gave this fight, would eventually involve significant forces on both sides. This scenario has been modified. The lead elements of the NVA are now fixed for the first two turns. This gives the US company a chance to decide what they are going to do, once they figure out they are surrounded. Also, in this variant, additional units have been added for both sides, another company of infantry for the US player, plus stronger support. And multiple heavy weapons for the NVA. Also, the number of turns has been increased from 27 to 50. Promises to be a real slugfest...

One of the best scenarios for Vietnam - plenty of time and space to maneuver forces. Features Air Support, Tanks, AFVs, and Helo's.
Huge map, fun battle, and very well balanced.
