    Modern War #24, Jul-Aug 2016

    LZ Albany depicts the ambush of US air cavalry units by the North Vietnamese Army on 17 November 1965, during the Pleiku Campaign. Turns cover one hour, with multiple impulses driven by a random chit draw. Additional chits add extra assets like artillery and air power. US and NVA platoons maneuver through areas of jungle, sawgrass, and clearings. Leaders magnify unit abilities but are vulnerable. The NVA player is bent on maximizing US losses before being overwhelmed by firepower. The US player must stabilize the situation, maximize NVA casualties, and evacuate wounded to prevent their falling into enemy hands.
