News in from Headquarters,

The RAF's, 680 Sqn, have taken pictures of Bourguébus Ridge, just south of Caen. The Germans appear to be holding a reserve there.

Join us this may for the Crossroads - Caen Outskirts airsoft event.

Enemy forces seem to be formed of the 16th Luftwaffe, 24th Panzer, 1st SS and 12th SS Panzer divisions.

Crossroads   Poster 5
Date:
28th & 29th May 2022
 
Location:
RIFT Airsoft - The Ridge - MK45 4LG (Devils Pit)
 
Join the fight, for the first British themed Frontline event!
 
Based on the real battle around the fearcely contested Bourguébus Ridge, South East of Caen! This was part of Operation Greenline, the pre curses to Operation Goodwood.
 
The British were to inflict huge casualties on the Germans and cause a major diversion in order to remove defenders from Caen!
 
It would prove very costly. Some German troops like 16th Luftwaffe Field Division, tranfered recently to the Heer as an Infantry Division, were not frontline caliber. The 12th SS Panzer Division was fantical however. This would lead to huge casualties on both sides.
 
It is set to be a really hard milsim battle. You will feel as though you are in Normandy, 1944.
 
Who will you fight for?
 
(Thanks Jack McIver for the photo)
