North Vietnam, officially the Democratic Republic of Vietnam (DRV), is a faction featured in Battlefield Vietnam and Battlefield: Bad Company 2: Vietnam. North Vietnam was a communist state that occupied the Northern half of the actual Vietnam.

After the Japanese surrender from the French colony in 1945, the DRV proclaimed itself in Hanoi, its new capital with Ho Chi Minh as their leader. The French accepted the new administration, but soon realizing the communist regime, known as the Viet Minh, declared war against the DRV and administrated the colony until the Việt Minh was victorious in 1954.

Soon after, the Việt Minh set their eyes South and attacked the Republic of Vietnam in the hopes to unify the Vietnamese people after nearly 100 years of foreign occupation, starting the Vietnam War, supported by the Soviet Union and the People's Republic of China to the North Vietnam.

The South was thus supported by the United States of America immediately thereafter, and although having won most of the battles in the conflict, the Americans had to pull out because of dissent at home.

Afterwards, the South was losing the war and signed a peace treaty in 1973, but soon the North broke it and conquered the South Vietnamese capital of Saigon on April 30, 1975. After that, the two states merged forming the Socialist Republic of Vietnam.
