We have begun work on a very exciting project which will bring Gunship, and helicopter sims,  into a new era:

The Vietnam War.

This add-on is very ambitious, and will require a few months to complete.

Here are some of the features we hope to include :

OH-6 Cayuse (Loach)

PLUS

-Copilot/Gunner as door gunner (we hope...)

-Authentic weapon load-outs

-New sounds and voices, some using actual Vietnam radio traffic

-Many entirely new missions

-A "what if" mode, letting you fight a war in Vietnam as if it happened in 2002

We hope to be working with Vietnam Helicopter crew associations to make this add-on as authentic and accurate is we can.

The Gunship! Vietnam mod team currently includes:

Pretzel
Jim Trapp
fng2k

We will be seeking additional modmen as we define the requirements. If you have experience in making mods (especially for European Air War or M1 Tank Platoon 2, which have many similarities to Gunship), and are interested in working on this project, contact us .

Updates and discussions will be posted here, and at the SimHQ Helosim forum.

Stay tuned.
