Men of War: Vietnam is a real-time tactics and strategy developed and published by 1C Company. Men of War: Vietnam is the fourth game in the Men of War series. The game was released on September 9, 2011, for Microsoft Windows. The game is set during the Vietnam War.

Gameplay[edit]

Two new, story-driven campaigns are added along with new features like the Vietnamese jungle and Cold War weaponry of early 1968.

The US campaign focuses on a team of elite special ops soldiers, and each one of them has a personality. The unit includes Sergeant John Merrill, machinegunner Jim Walsh, sniper Sonny Armstrong, grenade launcher operator Carl Dillan and combat engineer Bill Kirby. In some missions they can count only on themselves, while in the others they act together with regular US and South-Vietnamese troops.

The North Vietnam campaign tells the story of two Soviet military consultants and two soldiers of the North Vietnam Army who are the only survivors of an ambush prepared by the US troops. The task of getting back to the North Vietnam territory is a difficult one – they have no means of radio communication, no wheeled vehicles, and it’s too far to make it there on foot. On their way these survivors get involved in a chain of bloody engagements and find themselves in the very center of the well-known Tet offensive.

Missions range from special operations to full-scale battles.
