FIRE FIGHT! Vietnam Skirmish Rules 1960-1975

Watermarked PDF

FIRE FIGHT! Skirmish Rules for Vietnam 1960 - 1975 can be used for any scale from 15mm right up to 1:35th! Ideal for Platoon up to Company sized encounters (Battalion if you have the room!) from 1960 right through to the end of the war in 1975; but can be used beyond -such as the war with China and the invasion of Cambodia --or even further afield to the Middle East, '67 and '73 wars? This massive book (227 pages!) has a background section, comprehensive rules section covering everything from firing, wepaons, concealement, cover, tactics, greandes, air launched nasties, flamethrowers, mortars, artillery, forward observers, radios, improvised explosives and booby traps, vehicles from 50cc bikes right up to main battle tanks such as the M48a1 and the T54/55!! Also included are optional/advanced rules for things such as animals, village dogs, weather and infiltration amongst other things! And if this wasn't enough includes a comprehensive TO&E section covering the US Army/USMC, the ARVN, the PLAF (VC main Force and VC Local Force) and the PAVN (NVA)... and did I mention helicopters? yes they are covered! From the UH-1B, UH-1D and of course the COBRA GUNSHIP!!!

Fraught with inaccurate historical information (ex. The author states a squadron of Chieftain tanks arrived with Australian forces when in fact Australia deployed Centurion MK 5 tanks.

The rules on dogs are sound but the illustrations contain erroneous and contradictory values.

The author takes great pains to describe torture by fire ants by the ARVN military police, responsible for overseeing all VC prisoners. The Quan Canh (QC) ARVN military police are listed as Quan Saht. The closest I could translate this meaning would be Biet Dong Quan Sat, or ARVN Rangers. I have no doubt the ARVN rangers used extreme methods for interrogation, but if you're going to describe something not really related to the rules, and then apparently get it wrong, why bother?

What attracted me to these rules was the advertisement of completness, having any and all aspects one could desire. The rules do this bu go overboard, such as suggesting punching out of an undamaged aircraft. Also the rules'...See more

I should have made it clear, Canh Saht is the nickname of the ARVN Mp's, it means White Mice due to their white gloves.

Damnit! I meant Centurion Mk V's!!!!!!!!!! Why the hell did I put chieftain??

Can you email me? I'd love to discuss your ideas, especially in view of improving the rules. Yours is the first proper feedback I have received -so thank you

Awesome work. Very well done.
My only question is when is Morale checked? In Cold War, there is a table, unless I'm missing it in Fightfight!
Thank you for this rule set.

The author lists a whole slug of possible circumstances that would lead to a morale check, but from what I have read so far, it appears the players determine when a moral check is needed, with the exception of those who witness the downing of an enemy aircraft, where it is explicitly stated, no morale check is to be used. It appears to be used on the breaking of a nebulous moral code, if such a thing exists in a conflict like Vietnam's.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
