The Ia Drang Valley is a map featured in Battlefield Vietnam. It is based on the Battle for Landing Zone X-Ray, part of the Battle of la Drang Valley, the first major battle of the Vietnam War.
The North Vietnamese Army starts with the most flags but to combat this the 7th Cavalry Regiment has superior airpower meaning that the USA can quickly insert and extract players into and out of flags.
"November 14th, 1965 - The Battle for the Ia Drang Valley is the first true battle of the war. Until this point in time, altercations and hostilities were launched in secrecy from either side with the enemy having little chance for defense"
The Ia Drang Valley is an Assault map. The U.S forces begin with a constant ticket bleed. This loss can be stopped by neutralizing and/or capturing an enemy control point. The N.V.A forces begin the map with four control points surrounding the US landing zone. The N.V.A will begin to constantly lose tickets if all but one of their control points are captured by the U.S.
