BattleGroup-Vietnam Mod for Battlefield Vietnam

BG-Vietnam is a realism mod aimed at bringing some historical accuracy to the Vietnam vehicles and maps while introducing the features, teamwork and gameplay that are the core of our Battlegroup42 WW2 bf1942 mod (and which will soon be converted to BFV).


Unzip to your \Battlefield Vietnam\Mods\ folder to produce a Battlefield Vietnam\Mods\BG-Vietnam folder and subfolders

If you want all the music, copy across the music folder from \Mods\BfVietnam

BG-Vietnam will be activated automatically when connecting to an online BG-Vietnam server. To run in singleplayer or start a local server, 
go into Options/Custom Game, select BG-Vietnam and click Activate.
To run directly make a shortcut (or copy the one for standard BFV) and set the 'Target' as follows (changing as appropriate for your install folder):

"C:\Program Files\EA Games\Battlefield Vietnam\BfVietnam.exe" +game BG-Vietnam


This is Alpha Release 0.1 of BG-Vietnam. It is intended for Battlefield Vietnam 1.1, and has been tested in singleplayer, LAN conquest and LAN coop.

It introduces 5 new vehicles:
1) M67 Patton Flamethrowing tank for US Marines and ARVN Marines
2) M24 Chaffee light tank for ARVN Army
3) T-34-85 tank for NVA
4) ACAV (M113 with additional MGs) for US Army
5) M42 Duster AA tank for US and ARVN

The flamethrower is very effective against infantry but not so effective against tanks.
The M42 Duster will spawn for the US and ARVN wherever a ZSU would spawn for the NVA/VC, plus there is an additional spawn on the north of the island in OperationFlamingDart.

The other features are as follows:

1) All US and Vietnamese vehicles now have the correct ammo loadout, weight, gun traverse and elevation angles, and correct relative muzzle velocities.
2) Patton and T54 tank models have been corrected.
3) M113, Patton and T54 have 360 degree rotation MG cupolas.
4) M113, ACAV and T34 have 'tank rider' positions on their back decks (able to fire their own weapons).
5) US and Vietnamese APCs (M113 and BTR60) repair vehicles belonging to their own sides.
6) M113, ACAV, Patton, M67 and T54 have exhaust smoke effects.
7) Included is the original unofficial DICE free map, Valley_Assault.
8) All vehicles and maps have bot support (including Valley_Assault for the first time).
