Broken Arrow was a code-word used in the Vietnam War used to divert all available aerial resources to save an American unit currently being overrun. It was the ultimate example of American airpower, and it saved many American units from being massacred by the Vietcong and North Vietnamese.

Vietnam Combat Operations is a new fanmade RTS game about the Vietnam War. The game features hundreds of units, including nearly 20 types of aircraft.

Each type of plane or helicopter is optimized for a particular task. Cayuse or Loach choppers are excellent scouts, Hueys are workhorses suited for a variety of tasks from simple fire-support to delivering troops, Cobras are dedicated gunships and Chinook heavy-lift choppers can ferry large numbers of infantry or a single vehicle anywhere on the map.

Skyhawks and Dragonflies drop infantry-killing napalm, Skyraiders use their potent 20mm cannons to hunt down vehicles, Broncos mark targets with CS gas, Tigers use shrike rockets to take out armor, Phantoms deliver general purpose bombs quickly, Corsairs and Thuds fly slow but have large payloads, Intruders have extremely powerful anti-building bombs and B52s fly slow and high but can deliver an entire squadrons’ worth of bombs.

Historically almost never used as attack craft in South Vietnam, North Vietnamese air assets such as the MIG-17 and MIG-21 have been included in a ‘what-if’ scenario. These planes vigorously defended the skies over North Vietnam, accounting for about 100 American kills (one North Vietnamese ace shot down at least nine planes).
