WHIRLWIND OF VIETNAM: UH-1 / WHIRLWIND OVER VIETNAM (US Title)|
Whirlwind of Vietnam: UH-1 covers the events of November 1965, the operation in the Ia Drang Valley. You will pilot the legendary UH-1B (a gunship featuring maneuverability and fire power) and perform different types of tasks, including attack and destroy, infantry support, rescue and many others. Choose between different aircrew members at any time, becoming the pilot or gunner as the AI takes over any unmanned positions. Multiple settings allow varied flight behavior for the helicopter from realistic to arcade - making the game interesting for both hardcore gamers and casual players.
On March 8, 1965, the first troops of the U.S. Marine Corps landed on the territory of Southern Vietnam. It was the beginning of a new confrontation between the Saigon government and The Liberation Army of Vietnam. During this war, the American troops were using not only new weapons, but new battlefield postures as well. One of these changes was the extensive use of military helicopters both for transportation and fire support in landing zones.
The war in Vietnam became the first military conflict where helicopters played a significant role. Even now, the image of the American Huey helicopter is one of the symbols of the operation in Indo-China.
All the major weapons and military equipment of the period are included - both air and land - from firearms, grenade launchers and artillery to planes and vehicles on both sides of the conflict.
