Battle of Ong Thanh – October 29 1967
The battle for Ong Thang has been a continued balance of engagement and withdrawal for both sides. The US has committed a number of Regiments and Battalions of the 1st infantry Division to area of operation and a small company of Australian SAS have been assigned to help them move around the area as they have been here for some time on black ops.
The NVA 251st Regiment of the 9th Division and a number of veteran VC independent companies have recently bolstered the region after a number of heavy defeats. A lack of supplies, primarily food and medical has taken its toll on other elements of the 9th Division.
B Company – Elements
Platoons 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 1st Recon, 2 Recon units. 1st Medic Core.
Our story follows a successive push the day before by the US A Company that was cunningly countered by hidden and waiting enemy. This counter left an over extended number of platoons cut off and in small pockets fending for themselves over night. B Company has been deployed to try and find these ‘platoons’ and return then to a temporary LZ and for airlift. An aid station will also be set up at the LZ for any wounded found.
Its believed the NVA and VC elements have withdrawn from the region expecting a napalm strike but B Company has been warned to go in ready for anything.
The search for the ‘PLATOONS’ is on…
For this one, we will be opening the bookings with two sides.
US 25th infantry (Green machine)
VC 272nd Civilian (PJs)
PAVN 14th Regiment (NVA Greens and pith helmet)
Both sides will have a fixed and out of game HQ with maps and radios.
Welcome to the War guys
Hi all and welcome to the next installment of our epic Vietnam story. This is a full on FilmSim experience and everyone will be expected to play his or her part. Like Milsim, you may not be pulling your trigger all of the time, however when the shit hits the fan, it will really mean something. We hope everyone can get fully immersed, live, eat and breathe the 1960s conflict.
We can offer full rental kit for anyone that needs if for free and period rifles are only £20 for the weekend. This will include 3 x 30rnd mags to get you going.
For this game you will need:
Full camping equipment
Water – drinking
Airsoft Kit (if you have it)
Food and booze for the socials.
