Whirlwind of Vietnam is a helicopter sim that depicts the most famous episodes of the war in a movie-style way such as We Were Soldiers, Apocalypse Now, Hamburger Hill and many others.

SpeedTree was chosen for the game for its ability to efficiently render the vast forests and jungles of Vietnam.

"We were really glad when we saw SpeedTreeRT in action," said Sergey Gerasev, Whirlwind of Vietnam: UH-1 producer at 1C Company. "One of the differences between a plane and a helicopter sim is in tree rendering.

SpeedTree enables the rendering of realistic trees in both views."
