Is there a TS&TF variant for the Vietnam War? or one for the jungle fighting in WWII Pacific?

The World War II variant is K-Bar and Bayonet.

From one who tried it, K-Bar and Bayonet is NOT a variant of TSATF, it is an entirely different set of mechanics. There is a WWII variant if TSATF on the Jackson Gamers page that you could probably modify.

Larry also did a fast play WW2 version called M-1s and Arisakas. Its fast and deadly. Perhaps a bit more sinple than what you want. After playing several games of "With Ole Gimlet Eye" with its provision for air, I am a firm believer that it would work for Vietnam. It is closer to TSATF but as the prior mentioned ones is D10 based. Platoon level with mortar,lmg, hmg and artillery included. Close air is simple, but I think would work. The Jackson crowd may be able to provide you better suggestions.

looking forward to other opinions on this one.

This sounds like an interesting idea. I got to go see if I can find my books on riverine warfare in Vietnam. Maybe I can convert some of it. Last Stand Dan got me interested in adding water craft so maybe this is another venue to try that in.
