At work tonight and on autopilot so nothing much to do mentally except think more about Afriboria/Vietnam.
Another scenario that appeals to me is the Americans picking a location on the board as an area where the NVA forces MIGHT be. They establish a hilltop firebase or two and fortify the area with troops, hoping to tempt the NVA into a big battle.
This, and the "search and destroy" mission previously mentioned, are examples of the tactics that the Americans did actually use.
Other scenarios: Rescuing a downed Air Force or chopper pilot in enemy territory;
"a walk in the park"- a large American force (at least 2 companies plus tanks and ACAVs) tries to traverse on foot through the jungle from one side of the board to the other-sort of like in the HYW England would send over a sort of medieval BEF to have an amble through France until eventually the French would assemble an army and intercept them somewhere and a battle would ensue (we usually won!) Think that might be interesting to do.
Any comments ideas welcome
