There are two versions of this map.  The one downloaded  via this link  is not the  original map quoted  in the description, but an edited version by Wong Hung Low (though the read me that is included  gives a different email name. In this map  the    bend in the river part of the  map had been changed so that instead of a bend in the river, you  get the river  backing up on itself in a circular fashion.  (You can still see where the original river bed  went).

While the map is loading,  it gives some information  that implies the map would be called Riverbend river patrol, where the opposing forces include  Riverbend patrols vs the Vietcong Air Troop Transport.  The 'south western'  spawn point  on the edge of a small clearing among the jungle has a single  Huey  spawn; plus,  an equipment  box; unlike the original.

In the original by (1VB) Hunter of the 1st Vietnam Battalion  this  SW spawn point is an army base with   Huey,  Attach chopper and  twin rotor transport chopper as well as tanks, artillery, mobile artillery and transports . Also the  river  has a proper bend in it;  (see  the first  map image below)

The original Riverbend map when loading is labelled  Operation Riverbend; so, I'll upload the   original  as Operation Riverbend, otherwise it won't be possible to upload it.  


The actual map you ger is the one you see in the  image  below


The  non original 'edited' version unpacks to an executable and read me that tells you where the installer  will install the map to.  


C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Battlefield Vietnam\Mods\BfVietnam\Archives\BfVietnam\Levels

The executable installs two .rfa  files  i.e.  Riverbend.rfa and Riverbend_001.rfa 

The  map  plays differently to the original, so IMO is worth having; especially if you love Battlefield Vietnam.

There are some minor bot issues on both maps; with bots  hanging around. The more  bots you have set e.g. 64 bots, the more bots  seem to be stationary.  That said, both maps are  still playable.
