It’s Time for Your Tour of Duty The award-winning Lock ’n Load Tactical Series. Heroes of the Nam. This squad-level game, with its fast-paced, intense impulse system, drops you right into the middle of furious jungle firefights and all-out, building-to-building assaults.

In Heroes of the Nam, forces from the Army of the Republic of Vietnam (ARVN), the United States Army and Marines, as well as their valiant Anzac allies from Australia and New Zealand, take on determined enemies from the North Vietnamese Army (NVA) and the unpredictable Viet Cong (VC). Powerfully armed Squads are at the vanguard of all actions, spurred on by daring Leaders and other unique individuals such as Snipers, Medics, Corpsmen, Chaplains, Advisors and, of course, Heroes, whose unique skills and sudden appearance can alter the tide of any battle. Helicopters, tanks and armored personnel carriers (APCs) also join the fight. Test your mettle in over 25 action-packed scenarios (the full game). Only the heroic will be victorious.

This module contains the maps, units, markers, and select tables needed to play the game. Game scenarios are available in the LnL:Tactical Companion Book, which is available on the LnLP website.

What is a Companion Book? The Companion Books are the same as the Module Rules and Scenario booklets that are available in our games, with the exception we included most of the charts and tables that come within that game. So why release the Companion book? The Companion Books were designed for those gamers who are playing virtually and did not want to purchase the entire game just for the scenarios and tables to play via Vassal or Tabletop Simulator. The Companion Books are NOT complete games but do contain everything a player will need to play via Vassal or Tabletop Simulator. Players who prefer to play virtually can do so without the need to own the board (boxed) edition of the game. The Companion Books also can be used by players playing digitally via our Digital DLC editions via Steam for their Macs or Windows computers.

So if you own or purchase the board games you don't need to purchase the Companion Books. Some board game owners prefer them since they are spiral bound and will lay flat on the table and any typos or known errors found since the printing of the original edition of the board game has been updated. The Companion books can be used with any game printing or game rule edition.
