I would love to see an Italian/Mediterranean theater events out here in my area.The summers in the Mid-West would be perfect for HBT's that both sided used in the front.Also since Ohio or nearby state is no North Africa,it would give an opportunity to use German tropical gear,which was used in the Mediterranean front in the war by 1943.Also Hiki Shop has a new line of WW2 Italian gear/uniforms and I believe there are a few Italian airsoft guns if I'm correct.The usual terrain of the Mid-West is suitable enough for an Italian setting.Italian camo would fit right in with this event for those who want to feel more authentic.How about it?I believe it would be a good style of event.
Crete would be an interesting scenario. Fallschirmjaeger and (I think it was) 5th Gebirgsjaeger vs. Brits/New Zealanders. You've still got some weapons issues if you want to be authentic. No SMLE's and no MG-34s, but at least there are Kar98s, MP40's and ZB26's that can stand in for BRENs.
An Italian scenario with the Italians using Kar98s wouldn't be to far off the mark. And why the ***** do they make AEG's but not make spare mags for tem?

Crete sounds like a good scenario.I too would love a North Africa event but don't know how much tropical UK stuff is available.Plus there needs to be a large sandy area for that too.Either way both would make good events.Totally agree with the lack of spare mags for AEG's
In California the Regiment typically themed their events in the MTO as their terrain supported that theater. The challenge for North Africa or the MTO is airsoft weapons simply don't provide adequate range other than during night ops. When your opposition is visible well beyond engagement ranges the suspension of belief is just too great for airsoft to be a good medium. These are areas where blankfire and lazer hits are more effectively used.

we use to recreate Anzio and Sicily down here in Chile, as they´re geographically and climate similar (I studied in Italy a few years back)... let me draw some pics about the Fallshrimjaeger v/s Brits+Big Red One to share
Dracul: It looks like it lost a lot of steam and I now feel bad for randomly dropping off.

stuka: I mean it's not your fault. It is interesting though that things are falling off as we are finally getting our ww2 guns with the type 38/96 and the enfield as well as it recieving a new loading system, it's kind of unfortunate

Dracul: I don't know, maybe its because all the guns are becoming available, there is a decreasing need for the forums.

Dracul: Most of the talk was about making guns, as all the uniform info was already out there, but now the weapons are out there and are usually decent quality.

stuka: well the forum is and should still be useful for updates on guns, creating groups/events and building kits

Cpl. Hicks: I haven't been here in years, but I'm glad to see this forum is still kicking! So much great info on here.

savoy6: anyone know if anyone still carries the enfield?

Dracul: I think Redwolf has a Enfield. If not or not longer, then not until G&G releases theirs. The old gas Iron Airsoft brand SMLE isn't carried by anyone anymore and was such piece of crap. Not worth trying to track one down.
