War over Vietnam

Introduction

Gary "Mo" Morgan, the scenario designer behind HPS Sims' new War over Vietnam sent along a prime selection of exclusive screenshots from this new air campaign simulation.  As the title implies, this is a historically accurate simulation based on Morgan's military experience in Vietnam: the game focuses entirely on creating a modern air war as told through the instruments and electronic surveillance equipment seen by commanders.
