This July will mark the first Stalingrad event, Gumrak Flugplatz at Yatesbury Airsoft, and it WILL be the game of the year! (Based off how epic Fall of Berlin was.)
 
Missing this one will leave a mark on your soul for sure! 😱
 
Not only will it be the ferocious Soviet team, attacking in waves to the "Urahhh", but will obviously expose Frontline Events players to more Urban fighting!
 
Further to that it will be the first event we are running with much more rigid kit guidlines! Soviet Sailors, Soldiers V the German Heer and Luftwaffe Ground troops in the city! We will be actively encouraging players to ditch full face masks in favour of the clear eye pro!
 
We want to see what you've got! Help us boose our community and make the battles even more brutal!

Good news.

As per the recent poll in the Frontline Events - WW2 Community group. We will be including the Signaller Roll for both the Soviets and Germans in the Stalingrad 1 and all other Stalingrad games there after.

Your Role will be to move with combat troops on the front line, laying down a vital telephone network between the Objective and the HQ. When the Objective is taken, phone back to the HQ in order to secure the objective and move the HQ forward! You will work as a pair, one man carrying the reel, the other with the field phone. You will both be armed as riflemen. Soldiers first! Signaller second.

All you need to do is let us know when you boo on if you want to be a Signaller.

Some inteligence has come accross the desk at .577 Infanterie Regimental Headquarters.
 
Looks like 2nd company has been given the good news. 1 platoon has been chosen to lead the assault on Gumrak Flugplatz.
 
The operation will be broken down into stages. Crossing phase line Anton during the early morning, phase lines Bruno in the afternoon. Phase line Ceasar will be taken by 2 Platoon.
 
Enemy strenths are at Company minus, but they do have medium machine guns and lots of cover from view and fire created by the Stuka attacks.
 
We have been told that a huge artillery barrage will be launched at H minus 2 for 2 minutes, with smoke, to cover our advance across the open ground."

We stumbled accross the original OKW maps of Stalingrad.
 
These will be used in our stalingrad series of event to help you relate to where the battles are taking place.
 
Just for reference, Point 106 is the Barrikady Gun Factory, a tug of war battle that raged from November 1942 to February 1943.

Never a night off at Frontline Events HQ.

All 28 sectors of Stalingrad are added, exactly where they should be, to the map. Each one must be fought over and conquered. Each one a seperate game.

Available int for Gumrak Flugplatz.

Some "hand drawn" mapping of the Objective has been handed down from the Aufklarungs patrol.

N denotes North
Trees denote trees
Boxes denote buildings (numbered)
Broken lines in black denote tracks/roads/runway
Unbroken black lines denote boundaries
Red broken lines represent phase lines
Red crosses are buildings not accessable due to bombing

German Field Telephones for Stalingrad 1 - Gumrak Flugplatz have taken shape.
 
Yes we know these are not original feldfernsprecher 33 (FF33) telephones, and nor would we want to trash a pair of originals, thats why these British Linesman 1705 and 704 will do just fine.
 
Custom made leather straps, painted (fakelite) Brown and lacquered for a bit of protection.
 
So excited for Stalingrad!

A sneak preview of some sound effects that we had recorded and mixed in 2019 in anticipation of the Stalingrad Airsoft games!

The build up to Stalingrad continues!
We have, again, tried to tailor and refine the sound effects for the event. It sounds great!
Here is a 1 hour ASMR track for your twisted enjoyment!
Close your eyes, imagine yourself as a sniper in the ruins of the Dzerzhinskiy Tractor Factory, stalking your prey.
Avoid the HE111 bombings and Stuka strafing runs accross the twisted ruins.
Hear the German propaganda messages to the local militia and soldiers trapped in the concrete maze of rubble on the banks of the Volga.

The work continues.

Soviet "ID Tags" (leave tokens) for the snipers to collect have been finished, now we will add the leather lace.
 
We understand that these are not Soviet "ID discs", however, for the purposes of giving the German snipers something to collect, this is deffinately it!
 
Soviets remember - Collect these from dead snipers to claim your confirmed kills!

The latest edition in the Stalingrad build up!

10 German ID Discs for the snipers gameplay.

This is fashioned after an original found in Northern Volgagrad, 2007.

9. / J. R. 576 24 = 9th Company, Jager Regiment 576, 24th Panzer Division. The 24th Panzer Division was destroyed at Stalingrad in late December 1942.
