Troy and I are considering attending this event as Russian or Militia to get our Eastwind fix.  Cost is high, and the minimum required gear is substantial.  The game runs 40 hours non-stop, and you live in the field for that time.  This is the kind of thing we want to do for Ostwind.

I have a lot of extra militia field gear and uniforms for this event that I would be willing to sell or loan out. Let me know if you have an interest in carpooling to this event. This could be a good milsim to attend to help us with planning our first Ostwind.

AAR: Assault on Derbent

This was by no means a Eastwind or a typical weekend airsoft game. I would have to say it landed right in the middle of the two. Here are some pros & cons:
Pro: Great view of the valley in fall colors from on top.
Con: Rough trails to walk or drive up or down.
Pro: Warm campfires and sleeping up top.
Con: Cold and frosty sleeping in the lower valley.
Pro: Large AO to run on and a map was provided.
Con: Too large a area for some of the missions and the map was not detailed enough.
Pro: 2 Plt. 4th Sq. was a great group to run with and I was asked to be the Bravo Fire Team Leader.
Con: First few hours on the AO and higher command stripped out our Squad Leader, Radio Op. and Medic.
Pro: Day time combat was intense. Our forces won 2 of the 3 major engagements.
Con: Very early AM blocking action/guard duty. "embrace the suck"

Over all the event was fun, but there seem to be a real lack of organization and communication from the host to players. I'm sure Rekkon will give a more detailed AAR to include the massive amount of eyepro violations that went unchecked.

These MilSim events are going along way to help us with "Operation Ostwind".
