January 1968
Location: The Demarcation Line, Vinhlinh.

In August 1964 the first exchange of fire between the US and the North Vietnamese took place in the Tonkin Gulf with zero casualties on the US but number of North Vietnamese Navy operating torpedo boats were hit. This was the first probing of the US military whilst the CIA continued to gather intelligence and make analysis of the civil conflict, which at this point was mainly in the Southern regions across the Demarcation line. At this time ARVN training camps were in full operation.

On January 30 1968 began the massive Tet Offensive from the North, millions of NVA propelled themselves across the demarcation line and began the largest offensive of the war. These mixed units of PAVN and Vietcong were well organised and deadly.

Our story follows the sudden and surprise attack felt by many ‘Safe’ US controlled bases along the Demarcation line and beyond the DMZ. At Camp William, a US RnR station which was previously an ARVN training camp is about to have their day ruined.
The 33rd have been unleashed upon Vinhlinh.

US army – Mixed elements.
Aus recce on RnR – My have a BBQ going at all times.

PAVN 33rd Regiment
2nd Regiment VC

Both sides will have a fixed and out of game HQ with maps and radios but each group will have their own objectives.

Welcome to the War guys
Hi all and welcome to the next instalment 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.

Please try to bring and use period (ish) kit only if you can, NOTHING modern looking can be taken into the field or it MUST be disguised to not break the immersion of the camp.

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.
