The Nam: Tour of Duty Out has been released!
Subject description: The duty of making Rochard Nixon as happy as ever! Not!
The Nam: Vietnam Combat Operations, a total conversion for Tiberian Sun made by Tiger Yan that brings a Vietnam war to the battlefield, just received a major update called Tour of Duty, released a couple of hours ago.

The DLC freely gives players a greatly enhanced version of the original game plus all-new maps, units, and music tracks (no installation needed so it's totally safe to download). Aside from infantry and armor combat, the RTS now features naval warfare and vicious dogfights between American and Vietnamese planes!
US brown water navy units now include the famous MK. II PBR gunboat, swift boat, SEAL insertion craft, rickety South Vietnamese yabuta junks and ass-kicking, flame-spewing, armored river monitor ships. Ships and boats can be built by capturing ARVN Naval Yards, shown on the upper right. (Vietnam Combat Operations)
New units include the fearsome AC-47 'Spooky' gunship, the M-163 Vulcan (a tank built around a huge Gatling gun), the Vietnamese K-63 amphibious APC, MI-8 helicopter, mobile SA-2 launchers, sneaky Vietcong infiltrators, senior officers, river sampans, gunboats, support craft, and even armored naval monitors.
The Do Lung Bridge, one of the game's atmospheric new maps which feature riverine combat. (Vietnam Combat Operations)
Defend the nightmarish Do Lung Bridge (featured in the movie Apocalypse Now) and penetrate the mysterious waterways of the Mekong Delta with your gunboats. Wage an air war over North Vietnam, defended by MIG interceptors and batteries of cannon and SAM missiles.
The game's combat mechanics have been improved and now feature simple air-to-air combat between American warplanes and Vietnamese MIG interceptors, which are launched from camouflaged MIG bases. (Vietnam Combat Operations)
Vietcong sampans silently slink through the warren of canals that is the Mekong Delta. Naval units pack a punch and travel much faster than amphibious American Amtraks or Vietnamese APCs and PT-76 tanks.(Vietnam Combat Operations)
Liberate or destroy villages and launch ambushes from hidden jungle bases. Whatever Vietnam War scenario you've always wanted to recreate, you'll find it here.
The game's Facebook Page regularly shares tips, tricks and random facts that Vietnam War buffs might find interesting. (Vietnam Combat Operations)
About 63.7 million hours of research has so far gone into the development of Vietnam Combat Operations . . . mostly because the developer has been stuck home the past two years, just like everyone else. Shown are an A6 Intruder, F4 Phantom, F105 Thunderchief, AH1 Cobra, a North Vietnamese SA-2 Guideline Missile, and MIG-21 interceptor, all of which can of course be built and used in the game!

This mod is downloadable HERE. Despite all the pressure, you are not obligated to register there to download the mod.
That download site worked well for me, although it was not trivial to find the download button due to all the urge to make the user register there. However, if the link disappears or gets complicated to download it from there, you can also try this mirror at PPM. I'm just being discrete about it because this mod is big and our bandwidth is limited. QUICK_EDIT
Thanks a lot for the support, Banshee and everyone!
The game won't run properly if you download it directly onto your Desktop screen and try to run it from there.
Simply copy and paste the folder and its 99 files into your C: or D: drive, then click VCO.BAT or GAME.EXE and it should run perfectly.
If you want to play in full screen, just click TSCONFIG.EXE and set the resolution to 1360 x 768. A newer version of the game is available here (https://app.box.com/s/7he2212ndall9u6ot8hya009q0h0i8e8) but if the download is slow, then please feel free to download from PPM. The most recent changes are mostly cosmetic and make for prettier maps.
If you want to know if your opponent is Vietnamese, then listen to where your opponent is at the start of each game. The sound of rustling foliage means he's Vietnamese. To break slowdown (usually when fighting Viets), just bomb his base with anything and you'll get normal speed again. More tips in the manual.
Thanks again Banshee and the whole PPM community. You guys rock! = )
Hey - was curious why you had to use the external site and not host the files in a zip on moddb directly? Planning to checkout the mod during the week - looking forward to it, seems a nice fan made project! As mentioned above would be nice to see quality of life with integration to standard cncnet client but understand its quite a bit of work! QUICK_EDIT
