DELTA's mission included operational and strategic reconnaissance into long-held Viet Cong areas and the direction of airstrikes on them. They were also to conduct a bomb damage assessment, conduct small scale reconnaissance and hunter-killer operations, capture and interrogate VC / NVA, tap communications, bug compounds, and offices, rescue downed aircrew and prisoners of war, emplace point minefields and other booby traps, conduct psychological operations, and perform counterintelligence operations. They were to focus on base areas and infiltration routes in the border areas. The Helicopter Units assigned to Project Delta were as professional as the Ground Forces and suffered a similar loss rate of about 55%, The young Pilots proved themselves as professional Aviators along all those Missions.
The mission difficulty level is high!
