Le Chateau briefing for American unit

Postby oddball » Mon Feb 13, 2012 7:38 am

The attack on the German held Chateau will need 14 hard-hitting troops the like of which have never been seen before. Booking here
The latest intel is that there is also a new Garrison block built adjoining the Chateau, it would be wise not to attract any attention from the troops in that block.

We would appreciate uniforms to be M43 or 41 not M42 jump suits this aint Band of Brothers :wink: but if it is all you have let us know and we may be able to help.

Weapons will be any ww2 era airsoft gun under 350 fps, or 500 fps for bolt action rifles (MINIMUM ENGAGEMENT OF 25m)


This is just a general outline. More information will follow as its finalized, please feel free to ask questions in the general discussion, I'm keeping this locked for now, just so I know where I’m at.

Thanks for ideas so far, and I hope your all looking forward to it as much as we are :D

Some new film footage has been acquired which shows some more detail of the Chateau and the heroic work of the French resistance staff (on a personal note they seem a little odd to me :? maybe all Europeans are like this)

Are you still keeping to the rule No M42 jump suits? I can wear 82nd if its an issue :giggle: They did have to jump out of a plane at the start of the mission didn't they? :whistle:

If not i can supose force myself to spend more cash or gear :happyswing:

You can keep the jumps suit or I will have an M43 spare with me to lend out.

I was just trying not to have everyone in M42's as they stick out so much and don't fit with the film.

So M42 is ok or you can spend some cash, remember there are a lot of looks like M43 out there like Dutch, Greek etc
