Vietnam | Glory Obscured - Hydra Status Update
Progress on the NVA faction for the Hydra release has been moving along pretty well. Most of the art is in with a few art assets left to be made. We are continuing to refine the code and trying to squash out any bugs. Balancing the NVA is proving to be a time consuming process, but balancing always is. Over the coming weeks we will continue to balance out the NVA.
Below are some screen shots taken by our beta tester Jackseno. Images include everything from amphibious tank assaults to MIG strikes. Visit our ModDB gallery for more images.
This Month in Vietnam - June 1968
In April, 1968, U.S. forces in Operation Pegasus finally retake Route 9, ending the siege of Khe Sanh. A 77 day battle, Khe Sanh had been the biggest single battle of the Vietnam War to that point. The official assessment of the North Vietnamese Army dead is just over 1,600 killed, with two divisions all but annihilated. But thousands more were probably killed by American bombing. By June, 1968, strong, highly mobile American forces are now in the area, and the base no longer needed for defense, General Westmoreland approves the abandonment and demolition of Khe Sanh
