Show back story.
On November 12th 2016 the whole of the UK went dark after a huge cyber attack whipped out the national grid, communications and rendered the UK military deaf and blind. For two weeks an unconventional war of has raged through the urban cities an rural towns. A huge force of UK and international veterans has made up a backbone to an effective resistance effort. Armed originally with small arms or civilian legal weapons, the resistance has now been resupplied with more current weapons and equipment. The UK military has had a chance to re-organize itself and is now trying to re-establish control of a few major roads and nearby cities.
However, the Russian commitment is astonishing and although it looked like the UK was their only target, Communist movements have now seized power in a number of ex soviet countries and escalation is starting to be felt in Europe. The US are still uncommitted at this time using possible concerns about China as a reason to hold back their forces and aid.
The story continues on from the last event, the British communication system was wiped out by a tactical EMP that the Russian force planted and successfully detonated, leaving the British troops cut off and unable to radio for reinforcements.
Next we move on to pt 6 “rise of the resistance” the British have been decimated on all fronts around the coast and we find ourselves in eversley.
A large homeland force has massed in eversley thanks to its easy access to two main motorways leading to London, with the primary orders of not allowing the Russian armoured division taking over the capital.
The resistance force have drafted in help from RAF Odiham home of chinooks so supply drops and quick response forces can be masses quickly and effectively along with the help of Salisbury camp which homes RTR and many mechanised divisions of the military.
Due to there being a high population area a lot of ex service soldiers, police force and civilians have come forward to assist the war effort these will be a key factor in halting the Russians advance and are know locally as “the militia”
Main factors for the British will be interrupting supply routes, destroying any weapons or supply caches, establishing comms with other local groups and gaining and feeding back any intel found that can help the war effort.
The success of Tuddenham has sounded through mother Russia and your generals are proud.
As you hit land on the south side of England your main objective is to make your way to London but before you get there a large military force needs to hit head on to cut off air supply’s assisting mainland British forces.
When you hit land you were met with little resistance and because of this you advanced to quickly over unguarded territories meaning fuel and ammo are at a minimum as your backup supplies haven’t hit England yet.
Your first priorities are to gain supplies from local areas and find points of weakness in the resistance force, the army are not the biggest worry “the militia” have a new leader and this team of rebels are breaking Russian morale as they don’t adhere to the same rules of engagement as the British troops with stories of Russian forces being taken and tortured this new force needs to be dealt with head on.
Intel is going to be key you can only eradicate a threat if you know who your dealing with and how many there are.
So good luck comrades.

Gunman Eversley - "The Valley" boasts a 65 acre block of mixed terrain supported by a silver birch, pine and rhododendron forest. With natural hills and a sweeping valley that passes around its heights, Eversley is a great location for airsoft and themed events of all sorts. During winter, the evergreens provide plenty of cover as well as the hills and large amount of built features, in the summer the whole site takes on a thick jungle flavour with ferns growing up all over the site. Fixed features include mortar pits, fire bases, CPs, AT emplacements, MG nests, ammo and fuel dumps, mineheads, small rebel camps, a fortified wall with watch towers and breachable gates as well as wild west and viking style villages. Improvements are constantly being made to existing features as well as new areas being contructed, so the site is ever evolving. Gunman also has a wealth of quality mobile props which can be put out in the field including satellite listening posts, SAM emplacements, remote and timed explosives, laptops and more. The site can support some vehicle use internally as well as having the ability to insert troops by vehicle via the majority of the site boundaries. We bring a shop on site selling airsoft guns and accessories, there is also a caterer on site for open weekends. Water for drinking, washing and cooking is available and we have two portable chemical toilets which are emptied weekly permanently on site. Camping is highly encouraged and is free of charge.
