The aircraft engine sound ,fighter and bomber,artillery shelling and other bomb sounds were played through large speakers,it sonded pretty good Artillery explosions were created by a thunderflash pyro on top of a buried coke can and sand on top,set f by timed remte detonation
Sound effects add a lot as does effective pyro. To create safe but impressive theatrical artillery impacts I pull a trick straight from Hollywood. I take the large fourth of July mortar shells and place them in the bottom of empty sanitary wipe tubes. (I don't throw them out and repurpose them). With the mortar shell in the bottom of the plastic tube I pour in dry concrete mixed with chunks of beauty bark or small pinecones. The fuse is routed up through the top with the cap closed. I bury these so only the disinfectant tube cap at the surface. These can either be lit by staff or electrically controlled by my blast box (I have a dozen switches). I also have a friend who has a system that remotely ignites the fuses using infrared but we found in bright daylight this frequently fails. The initial pop spreads the concrete dust (and warns players nearby) then the big boom spreads the dust very convincingly. You want anyone especially close by to wear ear protection and you really don't want to be breathing in the dust but visually and auditorially they are quite convincing. For a Willy Pete effect use white TALC powder. Also avoid breathing it in! When you see Hollywood explosions it's often what they do.

Stalin should have known communism wouldn't work. There were red flags everywhere!"
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.
