Airsoft Event

https://www.facebook.com/events/725461161223589/

HQ Airsoft (RAF Driffield)
9-10th May 2020

Story:
The U.S. XIX Corps has rolled into Germany. For 6 days now the American artillery has rained down around Aachen and Würselen denying the German forces any freedom of movement during the daylight hours, however the nights are growing longer, easing the pressure off of an already tired German force largely made up of boys and old men. General Charles Harrison Corlett’s objective is to clear and liberate Aachen.
Würselen is a town in the borough of Aachen on North Eastern flank. It is housing thousands of German reinforcements and must be held back from joining forces with units within Aachen making them vulnerable.

German forces from the area vary, Kreigsmarine and Luftwaffe have been conscripted into fighting units in order to bolster defences in the district along with thousands of Volksgrenadier and Volksturm. Reports suggest that the 1st, 2nd and 12th SS Panzer divisions have been pulled back from positions to refit.

Objectives:

• The Allies must punch a hole in German defenses and push the Germans completely out and of Würselen.

• The Germans hold every cm of Germany that they can.

• A form of white light (torch) must be carried at all times.
• Some form of whistle must be carried for emergency.
• A white bandage must be carried at all times.
• To leave the spawn zone you must have a squad leader.
• Automatic is permitted indoors, however bursts of 3-5 will do fine.
• Vehicles must have lights on when moving during dark hours.

1. Water:
Ensure that you bring sufficient drinking water and water bottle, a soldier cannot survive of cans of pop and Monster alone.

2. Ammunition Count:
• Pistol – 2 Magazines
• Shotgun – 100 Rounds
• Rifle (Bolt Action) – 100 Rounds
• Rifle (Semi Auto) – 100 Rounds
• SMG (Full Auto) – 300 Rounds
• Automatic Rifle (Full Auto) – 200 Rounds
• Machine gunner – 2000 Rounds
• Sniper – 50 Rounds
• Anti-Tank – 2 Rockets
Extra ammo may be carried in metal ammo container e.g. MG34 Trommel or .30cal box.

3. Classes:
• Section Commander – It is your role to ensure your section is kept together and is working efficiently to carry out your orders and your commander’s intent. You must also manage water, ammunition and casualties. Look after your men and they will work hard for you. (to be a section commander please dress appropriately, and act the part e.g. sergeant stripes.)

• Rifleman – You are the back bone of the modern fighting force. Your role is to obey direction from your section commander to win the fire fight or use your quick thinking to outflank the enemy position. Put in maximum effort and you will be rewarded by your superiors.

• Automatic Rifleman – Your role is simple. You are a rifleman with an added capability, the ability of sustained and accurate automatic rifle fire. Keep the enemies heads down as you fire during the assault.

• Machine Gunner – You are the heavy support that your section needs to win a fire fight, although the machine gun is heavy, you have fire superiority over the enemy fire teams. You can only use this weapon in two roles. You may fire from a sustained fire position (bipod deployed) or fire from the hip on the assault.

• Sniper – Snipers are integrated into the sections. They can use their keen eye to spot out key enemy machine gunners and section commanders in order to create chaos. These are limited to one per section and must work within the section. At absolutely no point in time will the sniper be allowed to lone wolf unless he has been briefed for a special mission. The sniper must carry a pistol and will not be allowed to play without one due to the minimum engagement range of 30 meters.

• Anti-Tank – Your role is to destroy vehicles and emplacements. Use your rockets wisely as your team may be relying on you!

• Assault Engineer – Engineers like to think they are the workers of the Army. They will be given special tasks from laying mines, demolitions or even building obstacles to slow down and enemy force.

• Medic – The medic is the life line of each section. At time he may be running around like a headless chicken to breathe life back into players. He should also strive to check on your actual health b making sure you have drank enough water or eaten enough food. Look after your medic. He will be the angel on your shoulders.

4. Spawning:
When you spawn in the SPAWN ZONE you will be with your section and section commander. You cannot leave the spawn zone without the section commander.
Your SPAWN ZONE will be your HQ.


4. Surrendering:
You have the option to surrender yourself! If you surrender you must have your weapon slung and approach the enemy with your hands held above your head. You will have to conform to a search and then maybe taken to the enemy HQ for questioning before being released. Be warned, some SOLDIERS may not take you prisoner! (No personal effects can be confiscated, Weapons can be held for the captured PLAYER until PLAYER is released.)

5. HQ:
Your HQ will consist of an Aid station (Marked with Red Cross) and a HQ Element (e.g. HQ Tent) where you will spawn from.

6. Game Casualty:
You are a casualty in play if:
• You are Melee killed (Another PLAYER puts his hand on you and states, “Knife!” or bayonetted).
• You are struck by a BB.
• You stand on a mine. (Big bang and white dust)
• You are 5 meters from a pyro technique explosion. (Including mines.)
• You are in a room with pyro techniques and not behind hard cover. (Concrete.)
• You inhale yellow smoke (poison/toxin) without a mask.

• You must role play your own injury for 5 minutes. (Fall down screaming.)
• Continue role playing injury until revived.
• If you are dead, when other players are out of site return to spawn zone.
*If you become a casualty during dark hours you must use white light to donate that you are dead.

• You are 5 meters from a pyro technique explosion. (Including mines.)
• You are in a room with pyro techniques and not behind hard cover. (Concrete.)

8. Revive/Respawn:
You can be revived by:
• Another PLAYER can apply your bandage to revive you.
• Injured SOLDIERS can be moved, however must be carried. (If you can.)
• A Medic PLAYER can revive you back to full health by applying a bandage then removing it again.
• If you have a bandage a Medic PLAYER can revive you back to full health.
• If you have a bandage on and have not been killed, you can visit an AID STATION to revive you back to full health.

9. Vehicles:
All in play vehicles will be issued with white smoke. White smoke is to be ignited when the vehicle is immobilised or disabled.
• Soft Skin Vehicles (Jeep, Kubelwagen, Opel Blitz) – These vehicles can be disabled with grenades, this does not kill the occupants inside the vehicle. If these vehicles are hit with rockets, mines or charges they will be destroyed and all occupants killed.

• Armoured Vehicle (Halftrack, Sherman, Stug) – Rockets, mines and explosives charges will be required to damage these hefty vehicles. When the vehicle is truck once by mine, rocket or charge the vehicle and crew are all dead. White smoke will be used to show the vehicle is destroyed.

10. Bunkers:
Once a bunker has been contacted you will only have two option to deal with the situation.
• Retreat – Call the “Retreat” and fall back from the bunker completely.
