Finally Dien Bien Phu the Computer war game!

Often Computer wargames take place in WW2. We rarely see PC wargames in other eras. While searching on the net I found a Computer wargame titled Dien Bien Phu.

http://www.wargamer.com/article/2741/dien-bien-phu

As the name suggests it takes place in Indochina War. However the game is more than just about Dien Bien Phu. It actually has campaigns based on battles prior to Dien Bien Phu and places other than Dien Bien phu!For example the first mission in the game takes place on The Street Without Joy. Many of the most important battles in the Indochina War such as the battle of Vinh Yen and the siege of Na Son are playable scenarios! Up until now wargames taking place in the Indochina Wars were limited to boardgames. Now you can relive the Siege of Dien Bien Phu as either the French or Viet Minh or take command of Operation Lorraine. Featuring many vehicles and weapons used in Indochina War and maps based on actual places and the ability to use many tactics that were developed in the war such as aggressive paratrooper assaults of riverine assaults, Dien Bien Phu is as real as it gets in in wargaming.

Something tells me Sega likes the conflict in this time period and geographical location

Sega, you might not have seen it, but the free download option over at Shrapnel games for Steel Panthers Modern Battle Tank has numerous scenarios set in this interest area. Both the French time as well as the US involvement.

We welcome your abundant enthusiasm
