Dear Airsoft Fans,

Just to let you know, that the new Systema Motors and Mecha-box sets are now available at Redwolf Airsoft. We have been avidly waiting for these products for some time now, and now that we have our hands on them, we can confidently say that hey have been more than worth the wait. Available with the innovative Magnum motor, or High-Speed Turbo motor, these kits are extremely high-quality products with innovative new designs. We had the chance to test the Systema Motor out yesterday, and the performance can be simply described as phenomenal! After we installed the Turbo motor into one very lucky AEG, it made the BBs spew out, at a rate of fire I haven’t seen before. We updated the news article on the Redwolf Aisoft webpage; here are a few words we wrote about the latest Systema products…

Minor new display bugs fixed

There were a couple of style releated bugs that we found that have just been fixed. Both related to the IE browser and not Firefox.

The first issue is that when images are posted beyond a certain width they cause the LH menu to disappear to the bottom, the problem was that the background colour for quoted text was being displayed over inset images making it look like only half of them had loaded (CSS styling issue).

Both issues have been addressed, so things should look better in IE browsers now.

The Battle of the Bulge – A Clash of Eagles: 17/12/06

Yith has sent in word of a ww2 re-enactors event that will be held in December this year, The Battle of the Bulge – A Clash of Eagles. Here’s the details on the event:

Battle-Bulge

One day Airsoft WWII Midlands event: The Battle of the Bulge – A Clash of Eagles

December 1944: As the world prepares to enter a sixth year of total war, Hitler’s forces mass for an irresistible all-out attack upon the overstretched Allied lines and make a desperate gamble to seize the vital port of Antwerp.

Can Patton’s 3rd Army group aided by a small contingent of plucky Brits of 30 corps hold the line against Pieper’s elite SS and Von Der Heydte’s fearless paratroopers in the dense and stygian forests of the Ardennes?

Choose your side: Will you be a Teutonic veteran of the Eastern Front spearheading the Reich’s bold thrust across Belgium? Or will you skirmish as a fearless defender of liberty for the Allies? Both sides will have to contend with fast paced battles and vital reconnaissance, blending stealth with aggression to achieve their objectives and final victory!

What do you have to do? Don’t worry if you don’t have a WWII loadout or AEG, we’ve compiled a special guide that allows you to construct a ‘good for gaming’ WWII outfit for your chosen side for less than the cost of a couple of hi-caps!

And you don’t need to necessarily have a WWII AEG, we’ll supply you with a list of ‘counts as’ AEGs. For example your M14 can represent a Browning BAR automatic rife or an M249 might represent a German MG42 machine gun.

Where is it? We’re staging this battle at First and Only Airsoft’s excellent Matlock site. We believe its dense terrain reflects the impenetrable Ardennes forests perfectly and is a central location for most UK airsofters to reach.

When is it? The event will take place on Sunday the 17th December 2006. Thats just one day and 62 years after the real events of the battle. Yith, (ww2airsoft.org.uk)
