Things are moving along well with the NVA faction. It is essentially code complete, art is almost done, and ground work for the AI is in process. New maps are being created as well. The way the NVA plays is quite different than anything we've seen before and we hope it feels fresh and new to everyone when it's finally released.
The Utility Factory (left image) builds all the support units such as the Mechanic and theType 85 ARV. It has the Watch Tower module and the SA-2 module shown on it. These modules occupy slots on the structure and can be swapped out for other modules. The Watchtower spots hidden units and shines a light on them. The SA-2 is a long range missile that will track any air unit in range.
The Medium Factory (right image) builds all medium rated units such as the T54 Tank and the Sharpshooter. In the picture the Pillbox module and the ZPU4 module can be seen. The pillbox is the anti infantry solution to structure defenses and the ZPU4 is the quick and cheap solution for AA.

This Month in Vietnam - 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.
