Brothers by my Side: The Story of LZ-Ray is a simulation of the air assault by the 1-7 Air Cavalry Battalion into the hornet’s nest of three North Vietnamese Army (NVA) regiments, and the American’s subsequent 72-hour fight for survival. The player controls –by moving cardboard counters across a map and combating enemy formations— the American and Vietnamese formations that fought in the battle. The map covers Landing Zone X-ray (LZ X-Ray) in South Vietnam’s Ia Drang Valley, and the surrounding area. The counters represent infantry platoons (40-60 men), machinegun sections (4-7 men 2 machineguns), mortar batteries (4-6 tubes), and helicopter sections (2-4 helicopters). Each turn represents approximately 15 minutes.
