Richard (Yith) of the Comrades in Arms group has been in touch with details of a one day WW2 event to be held at Phoenix Urban in late April:
One day WWII Themed Airsoft Event by Comrades in Arms
Arnhem – A Bridge Too Far
As the tide of war changes and Hitler’s forces are forced to retreat back to the Fatherland. Monty has a plan that could end the war by Christmas. A daring attack deep into enemy territory. This will be the largest airborne assault in history.
Choose your side.
Will you be one of the Axis defenders, desperately trying to re-organise in front of this totally unexpected tactic. Or will you be a courageous member of the British airborne forces trying to defend your hold in a town completely surrounded by the enemy, running out of supplies and out of time. Or will you be a local Dutch resistance worker, fighting to kick the Axis invaders out of your home town?
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 Phoenix Airsoft’s excellent Urban site in Clay Cross, Derbyshire. We believe the ruined factory buildings and palatial hotel building will bring the real feel of wartime Arnhem to life and is a central location for most UK airsofters to reach.
When is it?
The event will take place on Sunday the 22nd April 2007.
