Background

Units & Buildings

Units

Jungle Ranger Jungle Rangers use their experience and assault rifles with underslung shotguns to dish out great anti infantry firepower at all ranges. Tier One
Rocket Ranger Rocket Rangers use a break-open M79 grenade launcher to fire powerful, if inaccurate high explosive rounds to destroy light vehicles. They also carry disposable LAW antitank bazookas to deal with enemy armour. Tier One
Napalm Ranger The AEVN Napalm Rangers are equipped with powerful flamethrowers to flush out enemies and destroy jungle foliage. They are also somewhat heavily armoured. Tier Two
Mortar Ranger The AEVN Mortar Rangers pull double duty as suppression and mortar infantry with their equipment of mortars and light machine guns that can dam up a whole advance at a time Tier Two
Predator Response Vehicle The Alliance of Free States made so many Rovers they were practically giving them away after WWII. Unsurprisingly, the AEVN received many of them. It's Brushclearer chain gun sweeps across enemies, destroying cover and concealment, while it's flares keep areas of the fog of war revealed after the Ranger has moved on. Tier One
Battlewagon A sort of impromptu multigunner vehicle, the Battlewagon carries supplies for the AEVN, but when necessary the armoured vehicle can venture out into the field to break some heads. Tier One
AMX Chevalier Light Tank The AEVN still gladly uses the Chevalier Light Tank. While they're considered obsolete elsewhere, it's hard to deny their effectiveness, especially with their stealth detection capabilities and their front-mounted mine flails, which can clear traps and mines and occasionally grind infantry to shreds. Tier Two
Spaniel Tank Whereas the Mainstay of the Alliance regards the Spaniel as too flimsy to serve in their army, the Spaniel Tank is regarded as perfect for the AEVN with its light frame and high speed, and with its smoothbore gun, it can fire a deadly napalm shell to burn enemies out of their position
Peacock Tank Destroyer In combat the Peacock's light armour prevents it from being dedicated to front line combat. So the adoring crew uses the six 120mm recoilless cannons as direct fire support, often destroying everything in its path with ease. Tier Three
Bluejay Transport AEVN Bluejays are armed with a pair of heavy door guns, which scythe down anyone dumb enough to get in the way. Of course, they also retain the ability to quickly shuttle infantry. Tier One
Cardinal Viper A potent combat modification of the lighter Cardinal, the Viper's bite comes in the form of a pair of phosphorous rocket pods and swivel-mounted grenade launchers, capable of quickly disorienting and then eliminating most ground targets. It can switch between the two weapons, depending on the target. Tier Three
60px Rascal Dive Bomber Pawned off by the Allies to the AEVN, the Rascal is still an effective ground attack plane in spite of its age, with twin autocannons for shredding light vehicles and infantry, a single unguided bomb, and a rear gun useful for shooting down attackers. Tier Two

Special Units

60px Patrol Boat The ARVN has several small swamp boats not unlike those used by the Confederates. Their flamethrowers are very useful on the river deltas of Vietnam. This unit is only available in certain maps featuring large amounts of water.

Structures

AEVN Command Tent Those outposts are premade on maps and can be captured like Tech Buildings, to buy ARVN units. They are not very tough however.
60px AEVN Guard Tower Simple wooden guard towers, Guard Towers provide a long line of sight combined with a number of very powerful 13.2mm heavy machine gun easily capable of gunning down infantry or turning light vehicles into scrap. Their height and the power of their weapons also gives them unmatched range for an anti-infantry defense.
60px AEVN Peacock Turret An immobile and enlarged version of the Peacock Tank Destroyer, the Peacock turret slams incoming enemies with six 140mm recoilless rifle rounds that pound tanks into so much scrap metal, and thanks to powerful auto-loaders, maintain a more constant rate of fire than their mobile counterparts.
60px 90mm Flak Turret Using a twin mount of the venerable French 90mm Flak Cannon, the Flak Turret is very useful in shooting down Vietminh, PIRA, and Revolutionary Vanguard Aircraft.
60px V-3 Platform The V-3 platform launches German Vengeance 3 missiles a great distance to destroy far away enemies who threaten an AEVN position.

Peacemaker Reinforcements

These forces can be called upon during Minor Faction Deathmatch. When the going gets tough for the ARVN, they call on assistance from a strike team of elite Alliance Peacemakers. Entirely air-mobile and well armed, this force is perfect for clearing the VM out.

Peacemaker Professional soldiers hardened from combat in Europe and around the world, Peacemakers are excellent combatants in the jungles, where the close quarters gives their shotguns a vital edge. The Dragon's Breath rounds favoured in Vietnam accompany each shot with a tongue of flame that can shake the nerves of even the best disciplined VM, causing them to break cover.
Peacemaker Sentinel Suppression specialists armed with machine-guns, Peacemaker Sentinels lay down support fire for their comrades on the move.
Spectrum Trooper Fully trained in the use of their spectrum cannons, Spectrum Troopers have found Vietnam to be a surprisingly target-rich environment.
Quatrain Tank An innovative airmobile light tank retooled from a WW2 era design, the Stewart is armed with an extremely powerful rocket-based 165mm demolisher cannon capable of firing high explosive shells or wire-guided rounds that will track even the fastest enemy target at long range.
60px Cardinal Raven The original configuration Cardinal has been modified with a pair of miniguns in addition to transporting infantry. It has also been modified with a winch so it can carry airmobile vehicles like the Quatrain.
60px Helios Fighter Using incendiary rounds for its autocannons, the Helios Fighter ensures that even aircraft that try to escape will still be suffering damage from their deadly autocannons.

Deathmatch Protocols

After gaining ground, the AERVN can utilize Rear Echelon support whilst fighting the Vietminh. The results (for the Vietminh) are devastating.

Radar Scan The AEVN scan an area of your choosing and reveal stealthed units in the area. Recharges every minute.
Ranch Hand The Rear Echelon troops send an aircraft filled with Agent Orange to the target area. It then releases its load on the enemies below, not only dealing damage to them over time, but also removing foliage from the area! Recharges every two minutes.
60px Napalm Strike A Rear Echelon Hawker is sent to the target area. It then releases Napalm to the area below it, utterly annihilating enemy infantry and foliage in the target area. Recharges every three minutes.
