What I would truely like to have is a Vietnam Helo sim. Huey slicks, Huey gunships, Huey Cobras, medevacs, Loaches, maybe even a Jolly Green for SAR up north. There is that MIA game but it isn't anything more than an arcade game. Vietnam would be such a good setting for a helo sim. I can't think why it hasn't been done yet. Dynamic ground war, troop insertions/extractions into hot LZs, med evacuation, riverboat support in the delta etc. Should I send this idea into PC Gamer? I have already seen two ideas from there turn into real games (MS Train sim and some firefighting game).

Unfortunately, Vietnam seems largely ignored in the flight sim world (as the Korean war was before Mig Alley). I only know of one sim that's planning to model Vietnam, and that's Konami's Jet Warrior (and it's been so long since I've seen any updates on this that I'm not even sure of what it covers anymore).

Personally, I'd love to see a Vietnam sim, but the only way it would ever be made is if developers and publishers saw a profit in it, and right now, flight sims aren't a favored topic for publishers.

BTW, I'm not sure if you're aware, but Microsoft recently did announce a MS Train Simulator.

Whistler, I totally agree with you on this one. Nam is the perfect setting for a chopper sim, Im so surprised that no one has picked up on this. I would support a submital to PC Gamer whole-heartedly and think it is about time someone said something.
