Well, once on the ground airborne tactics are much different then regular infantry. An airborne unit is usually surrounded 360 degrees and hence should keep all their fronts protected while advancing to an objective. In the infantry you should not just assume that all your flanks are protected, but the chances of making contact on your flanks or rear as an airborne unit are much more likely. Since in an airsoft situation you aren't in the air and things are small scale, the tactics are generally the same.

Because of the unique nature of the way airborne units arrived on the battlefield, getting organized to assault your objectives was the first priority. Naturally the Division itself was designed around the idea of isolation on the battlefield but likewise the Regiments down to the individual trooper was expected to be separated from their units at least for a time. Because of that more training was spent on individual skills and small unit tactics. Also methods were developed for identifying friend or foe when first linking up. (The crickets of the 101st, running passwords, challenge numbers etc. )
One local unit uses a technique for identifying friend or foe that is interesting. They rack their bolt and if the other individual doesn't do likewise they are assumed to be members of the opposition. Since bolts are non functional but present on most airsoft guns it's an expedient method.

I just have one thing to say about that 2nd Bat I find that funny because i can imagine the german moving his bolt then the american coming from behind a bush to say hello to his supposed allied friend ;D

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.

ajman: I don't think there's gonna be anything in northern New England anytime soon, and as far as I know there hasn't been in a while, but if you're willing to drive to Connecticut there's usually some decent sized battles a couple times a year.
