For Hero's of The Nam: How about counters for the CH-47 Chinook, AH-1 Cobra helicopters.
What values they should have?
CH-47 Chinook Values?
AH-1 cobra Values?
Tell me and i'll post those in the resource section for everyone to use for the vietnam game
AWESOME SAUCE, DUDE!!! Let me delve into the specs for each platform and I'll post what I think the values should be.
Roger that. Awaiting numbers!
After some checking, the CH-47 carries up to 35 fully armed soldiers (that's approx. 3 GO MMC counters, 3 SW's and 2 SMC's^) vs 26 for the Soviet MI-8 and the MI-6 is way too huge.
Armament is the typical port and starboard mounted 7.62mm machine-gun. So I would go with the 2* for machine-gun firepower, as the UH-1 fires the same 7.62mm. I would also go with a 1 on armor factor (AF). The CH-47 typically will not mount 2.75" rockets. So the ordnance and HE equivalents can be omitted. As far as troops, I lean towards PPPPP as a PPPP carries up to two squads, four SW's and two SMC's.
As for the AH-1 Cobra, I would use the same numbers as the UH-1 gunship but I would go with an AF of 2. It's AF is less than the AH-64 Apache's so an AF of 2 should be sufficient.
Hope this helps.
^ The leader counters are actually Platoon leaders and should count against the 2 SMC rule.
I forgot to mention the morale numbers. I would keep them the same as their US counterparts for that era.
