September 17 1944, almost all troops arrived on top of their drop zones without incident. The 82nd concentrated their efforts to seize the Groesbeek Heights instead of capturing their prime objective, the Nijmegen bridge. The capture of the Groesbeek Heights was to set up a blocking position on the high ground to prevent a German attack out of the nearby Reichswald and to deny the heights to German artillery observers.
Required/Recommended Equipment- Uniforms: Period correct uniforms are required. We will be going by the 10ft rule, if your uniform convinces us from that distance, it will pass muster.
A little bit about us, we are a relatively new collection in terms of producing events as a group but in no way new at producing events in general. Specifically historic and MILSIM/Immersive styled events. Most of the crew in Broken Arrow Events are namsofters and have been attending or producing these events for years. Earlier in the year some of us were also part of the group that put on Operation Eclipse: Fight for Cologne up in Massachusetts. We hope to start this event off well and continue to do a few more during the year (2018). Any questions, ask away or hit me up (Liam Wachter) or the group Broken Arrow Events on facebook.
This was the best WWII airsoft game of 2017. Had lots of fun. Weather was great. Everything worked. Major and minor conflicts. Good group of players.
We had three Orange/Dutch Resistance. Sneaking around the occupiers and trying to stay in character in case the Nazis got suspicious (before Americans moved in). And then running away from them. My girlfriend got away and then yelling that there was definitely a woman and trying to track her down. She liberated a Nazi head from its body.
Then working with the Americans. Holding the town/village and changing history.
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.

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.
