Ran a mission out of Force on Force "Day of the Rangers" scenario book. Short, small and fun. Found here:

Looks like a good, fun game.
Do you think it would be possible to transpose any of those 'Day of the Rangers' scenarios to Vietnam, maybe during the '68 Tet Offensive?

Thanks for the comments.
MP, yes possible but not too realistic. Most of them concern parts of the famous raid. That doesn't really translate well.I highly recommend their book Ambush Valley. The scenarios are decent but the historical info on the combatants is fantastic whether you use their system or not.
SP, you are correct sir! Am waiting to get a good storage solution for my navy which will include my helos before I fix her up. My Apache is pretty sad as well.

Nice work, Joe. By the way, you were recently mentioned on the Too Fat Lardies Yahoo group in a post that also mentioned Combat Patrol.

Thanks Buck! I just love the way your cards take into account cover during the "to hit" sequence. You can just see bullets bouncing off brick walls and such.
