Mekong Delta River Mat Set (FW903A)

Mekong River Mat Set (FW903A)

Mekong River Mat (FW903A)
includes three 2' x 4' (60cm x 120cm) vinyl gaming mats.

The Brown Water Navy would find it rather difficult to conduct its mission without a river to battle over! A large river has always been a difficult obstacle to riverine wargaming. Building a table can be time consuming, and modular rivers can sometimes be messy or not fit on the table correctly. So we went back to the drawing board and designed the Mekong River Mat set to give you a great range of battlefield flexibility.

The waterways of the Mekong Delta are busy with sampans, merchants, villages, and farming communities. They are the life blood of South Vietnam, through which over half of the entire country’s rice flows. It is remote with few roads accessing the interior’s rice fields and jungles. The Việt Cộng have launched their liberation movement from within this formidable fortress.

However, the US Army and Navy have come together to create the Mobile Riverine Force, a joint operation of infantry and assault boats. They are reinforced with helicopter gunships, devastating Skyraider aircraft and more. This new force is ready to take the fight upriver.

Our game mats are printed on durable vinyl, which sits perfectly flat on the table, providing a smooth, gaming surface instantly. The unique properties of the mats let you mark the surface with wet-erase markers without damaging the printed image. These tough mats will give you years of hassle-free gaming.

The Mekong River Mat set is designed to give you an ever-changing wargame landscape. It comes with three 2’x4’ (60cm x 12cm) panels, so lining them all up next to each other will give you a full 6’x4’ table. Each small panel can be re-arranged in a number of ways to provide you with several different configurations.

River Mat - Reverse S-Bend (FW903B)
If you want to be able to expand your river, we also have a special order mat available, which features a reverse S-bend. As well as opening up more possible river shapes, it also gives you the option of creating an impressive 8' x 4' (120cm x 240cm) table for even bigger riverine battles.

Combining the Mekong River Mat set with the Reverse Bend allows more layout options, as well as allowing for bigger battlefields.

Just as the main river is designed to link up with the other panels, so too are the small tributaries. This allows you develop an island network between two major rivers.

In fact, by combining multiple sets, there is no limit to how long your river could get!

Once your river is on the table, it's simply a matter of adding some jungles, villages, and rice paddies on top. The lack of elevation in the Delta allows you to ignore hills and rises, so you’ll be well on your way to heading upriver!
