September 12th 1944 – Hamlet of Zandoerle, Neatherlands.
For two weeks a single German gun has terrorised the surrounding villages and knocked out 6 British medium tanks and 14 light vehicles as well as over 30 US light tanks and armoured cars. The gun and the team operating it have become a priority one objective for a mixed unit of Allied troops. Defending the Zandoerle and its surrounding valleys, ridges and woodland are a mixed units of German paratroopers, Wehrmacht infantry and a number of SS elite units.
Due to the terrain, anti aircraft weapons and the AT gunner aces, the removal of this threat has got to be done with troops on the ground. Also, the enemy are imbedded within occupied homes so conventional mortar or artillery aren’t an option.
This event will start with Allied units moving into surrounding countryside, setting up an operational harbour area and beginning the hunt for the AT gun and its team. This scenario will feature 3 Command Positions as well as mission brief envelopes to be opened by the commander at certain times. All these will be in addition to the main objective, find the gun and kill the aces. Sounds as easy as ACB…..
Now the battle really begins…
Hi all and welcome to another WW2 Filmsim airsoft adventure. As with all Filmsim WW2 events, there is a theme that we play out with role play and a setting to make it feel like you’re in a movie. This will be no different. This new story line will be set in and around the Dutch hamlet of. Each events missions will follow on from the last and no matter who won the battle historically, we look at these events as something that might of happened even though in the end the victors will be the victors.
We ask everyone to make a HUGE effort to look like a movie extra and to help with this we have loads of German and Russian uniforms for free rental and a tons of bolt action and period SMGs for both sides.
This event will be limited to 30 a side and if it sells out, a further 5 tickets a side will be released. This is a weekend game with free camping. Off ground camp fires are allowed with 6 person bubbles.
