War Over Vietnam is a tactical air warfare simulation that
features an extremely detailed and accurate depiction of the operational air
war over the expansive Southeast Asia theater of operations. Electronic
warfare, including standoff jamming, chaff corridors, and self-protection ECM
pods, helps strike aircraft penetrate successfully to their targets in the
thick of the dense and lethal North Vietnamese air defenses. A full suite of
sensors is modeled, from ground controlled intercept and airborne warning and
control radars down to SAM and AAA target-tracking radars. War over Vietnam is
the first computer game to attempt to authentically portray the full complement
of offensive and defensive weaponry the River Rats employed when
going "Downtown" over Route Pack Six.
Reconnaissance and intelligence aircraft overfly targets and
record bomb damage for headquarters assessment and mission planning. Radar-
homing and heat-seeking air intercept missiles, dumb and
smart bombs as well as SAM Killer anti-radiation
missiles are all modeled.War Over Vietnam covers a truly diverse range of
airspeed and altitude flight profiles: from a supersonic F-111 'Aardvark'
roaring 200 feet above the jungle canopy at night; to an SR-71 'Blackbird'
blistering through the lower ionosphere at several times the speed of sound; to
an HH-3 'Jolly Green Giant' hovering motionless 50 feet off the ground near
enemy troops while 'PJ' rescue men winch up downed airmen.
