Again some great new maps have been added to the POWERBITS GAMETEAM MIXED server:
- Historical background: Tan Son Nhut Air Base (Vietnamese: Căn cứ không quân Tân Sơn Nhứt) (1955–1975) was a Republic of Vietnam Air Force (VNAF) facility. It is located near the city of Saigon in southern Vietnam. The United States used it as a major base during the Vietnam War (1959–1975), stationing Army, Air Force, Navy, and Marine units there. Following the Fall of Saigon, it was taken over as a Vietnam People’s Air Force (VPAF) facility and remains in use today.In 1953, Tan Son Nhut started being used as a military air base for the fledgling Vietnamese Armée de l’Air (VALA) (Air Department), and in 1956 the VALA headquarters were moved from the center of Saigon to Tan Son Nhut. But even before that time, French and Vietnamese military aircraft were in evidence at Tan Son Nhut.On 1 July 1955, the VNAF was established as a separate and distinct military unit. The VNAF consisted of 58 aircraft and about 1,300 personnel. The French had made no effort to expand the SVNAF to a force able to defend South Vietnam. Aircraft consisted primarily of C-47 Skytrains, and Grumman F8F Bearcats. In May 1956, by agreement with the South Vietnamese government, the United States Air Force assumed some training and administrative roles of the VNAF. Teams from Clark Air Force Base began in 1957 to organize the VNAF into a model of the USAF when the French training contracts expired.By 1960 Tan Son Nhut Air Base was growing, with more and more VNAF aircraft arriving from the United States, aircraft such as North American T-6 Texans, Douglas A-1 Skyraiders, Cessna L-19 (O-1) Bird Dogs, and Sikorsky H-19 Helicopters. The build-up of the VNAF caused air units to become very visible on the base. On 4 January 1964, the VNAF 3311th Wing was organized at Tan Son Nhut, and the number of air units grew rapidly. By the mid-1960s, Tan Son Nhut Airport was reported as the busiest airport in the world, with a mix of air traffic that approached chaotic proportions.

- AUTHOR NOTES: Quick 2 point territories, VC attacking USMC base, 20 mins.
Loosely based on the attack on Tan Son Nhut Airbase in Saigon during the Tet Offensive. The VC attack out of a textiles complex, aiming to break through the wire before moving on to assault ordnance storage bunkers.
All of the vanilla territories maps are long slogs, so I want to experiment with smaller maps to break up the marathons. Not everyone wants to play Bridges all day! This is out here for feedback, so let me know what you think down below.
