Default Useful links...

Some links I have used for the Viet War Pack :

Maps of Vietnam
Vietnam era helicopters
Sitrep and AAR, may be useful as briefieng model
US Army Helicopter Weapon Systems
Air Mobility 1961-1971
Field Artillery 1954-1973

I have also in PDF (From original documents) :
Vietnam Area Handbook
NVA Infantry Tactics
PLAF/PLAVN Tactics, small Unit Operations
PLAF/PLAVN Reconnaissance Tactics and Techniques
PAVN Artillery (Rocket Units)
The impact of the sapper on the Viet-Nam War
The PLAF/PAVN sapper units
VC Infantry Company Tactics

And I can search in a lot of books for specific questions (Osprey...)

Best regards,
Laurent Touchard

I'll tell you what I'm after:

A lay out of the "Golf Course"/An khe/An Tuc/Camp radclif or any other name the place is called. I've managed to find one map of the area, but it's just too small a scale to effectivly use.

Thanks, I've found some.. but they're no good. One thing I might try is to get a freind to check out the GPS locations with Google Earth. That might provide some clues.

With the links for the VWP, I've found this for tactical maps :
Camp Radcliff West Topo Map
Camp Radcliff and Eastern Vinicity
The An Khe Map

For larger view :
Golf Course is located in the North West corner of the map
Golf Course is located in the North East corner of the map

And :
Pics of Camp Radcliff in 1970
Hon Kong Mountain near "Golf Course"


I hope it will help !

Best regards,
Laurent Touchard

You found almost exactly the same stuff as I did! From the Same sites.

Lets see what Google Earth brings up...

Edit: just got the piccys back from my freind, and although he didn't zoom in enougth, there is something still there... Even if it's just a layout of the roads. Something which I can feed into Hexgrid.

Unfortanly the Hon Cong mountin is just a lump of tree's.

LOL !

But without Google... I've found a lot of things for the VWP with Altavista !

Good luck with Google Earth !
I'll search again, I think we can find it !
