TYPES OF PLAY
3. Scenarios- 
Operation BOLO(1965)-
was probably the greatest single air battle of the war. 
Involving over 50 F-4s against MiGs.

Tran Hoa Bridge(1972)  
F4s- Repeatedly flew into the Dragons Jaw to destory named bridge 
with Guided missiles.

4. Campaign Missions- This is several connected scenarios where the 
results of one scenario affect the next scenario. This level of play 
requires a gamemaster.  Multiple playing Sessions.

5. Roleplaying- The gamemaster will have to develop nonpiloting 
skills and quirks. Adventure possibilities may include a pilot being 
shot down and rescued, training ARVN, missions into Laos,
supporting the special forces. Non-aircraft involved missions could
involve fooling around in Saigon, the Air Base under attack by ground 
forces, etc.
