MiGs sweep the skies in Air Conflict: Vietnam

Posted by: Sean Colleli at 10/20/2013 10:15 AM

When people think of the Vietnam War's air battles they usually think of choppers, but there were a lot of engagements that involved jets too. Air Conflicts: Vietnam is showcasing a couple of those planes in a new trailer. In this video you see the MiG15 and MiG25 in action, both used by the North Vietnamese Army. I've always thought MiGs looked kind of cool so I'm glad they're making a major appearance in this game.

Vietnam. 1965. A long-simmering conflict escalates into a full-fledged war, and you are about to become a big part of it

Take to the air in screaming fighter jets or grab the controls of devastating helicopter gunships as you shatter enemy encampments with explosive ordinance, decimate North Vietnamese ace fighter squadrons, escort bombers as they deliver their deadly payload, or rescue stranded soldiers and deliver support troops to the ever-changing front lines of the vicious battlefield.
