Operation Counter Strike (Modified MK2 Vietnam Tomcats campaign by CowboyK for use with SFP1 SP3)
This campaign is a fictional event and the premise is as follows:
Vietnam March 1975:
After almost a 3 year lull in hostilities, North Vietnam has initiated an invasion of South Vietnam. South Vietnam's request for assistance is not denied by President Ford (as it was historically). Upon advisement from the Joint Chiefs of Staff, On March 5th the President launches "Operation Counter Strike". Carrier units stationed in the South China Sea and Air Force units from Korea, Okinawa, and Guam are deployed to assist the South Vietnamese in any way possible. Their primary mission is to maintain Air Superiority over South Vietnam and provide Close Air Support to South Vietnamese ground units near Hue and Da Nang. US Forces will also be used to effect the evacuation of US, South Vietnamese, and Third Country Nationals from South Vietnam. As in 1972, US Air Strikes are not enough to stop the advancement of North Vietnam. Before the fall of Saigon, the President initiates "Operation Frequent Wind" to evacuate personnel from South Vietnam. Operation Frequent Wind and Operation Counter Strike ended on the 30th of April 1975 after the fall of Saigon.
