Since the birth of scenario paintball, more and more games have been centered around the second world war. The reason why is because the lines between good and evil (allies and axis) are more clear. Though some have done games around aspects of the Vietnam war as well but those are fewer. When we look at wars like vietnam next to world war 2, Vietnam is considered to be highly complex as far as the battle lines, and everything else atleast from the prospective of the infantry, there was no clear targets to engage or a real enemy to fight. For Special Forces on the other hand, things seemed simple, you train locals in unconventional tactics, set up base camp, recon, attack. or you have to defend your camp from waves of NVA.
Is Hollywood to blame?
When we see movies on Vietnam in particular, we see the common infantryman, air cav, and very few about special forces who played a vital role in hunting the enemy. The only movies I've seen about black ops of that period were "Operation Dumbo Drop" and "Apocolips Now" If you go to youtube, you may still be able to find documentries on it but to translate it to paintball may not be that difficult.
Vietnam Scanario Game.
My idea is easy, all the players are devided as either American/ARVAN or NVA/Viet Cong. The Americans you select 12 to play the roles of special Forces and the rest of Montanyards (Tribal people that lived in the Vietnamese highlands and were trained bt American Special Forces) brake them into small base camps around the field and have those on the NVA/Viet Cong (VC) attack or defend from the other team and vise versa. Communist forces can respawn to reflect the masses they threw tward these camps and the American forces have to call in for the Mike Force (Mobile Strike Force) to re enforce there positions at the camp. Or a Scenario of rescueing downed pilots.
Either way you cut it. It will only work with the right producers it can be a resonding sugsess. If you understand the history it will defanitly be a sugsess.
