My desire would be for a late spring/early summer european cold war battle.  Something exciting but not over the top.

 

Like the bramley WWII game, a linear assault with the warsaw pact having to take out NATO defences in depth.

 

For those obsessed with being ninjas you can put in some nato air defence that needs knocking out by a small spetsnaz squad :)

 

Cut throat had some excellent large scale firefights, as did the mole, the asylum and the launcher.

 

I'd love to see some more of that and less 'get the codes, go back get the scientists, go back get something else you coudl have got first time round if you knew about it' :)

 

For me heavy RP elements is what flying lead, wastelander etc is all about, i love having roleplay elements but i do miss actually just having a battle sometimes.  I think we may have pushed the seesaw too far one way.

 

I'm more than happy to run some small scale 'secret missions' type games that are all about the RP and Evo and i have an RP heavy 'internal security' cold war game planned soon.

If I could 'Like' your post Gadge, I would;) and agree.  Besides, the battle weekends take 30 mins to write up and roll out with only human errors, the bloody RP ones take best part of a month to put together and have high risk of going wrong, though so far we have been fine.

 

2014...Ops weekends and WAR!!  promise!

 

Anything specialised will be a Secret Missions scenario and limited anyway.

Sounds good to me, honestly i know i sound like i'm moaning, i'm not.  I love CW, we've had some great games so far but I'm itching for some proper platoon/section attacks.   Just a bit of a change for a few games.

 

I love the idea of three CW games a year.

 

1 big battle in europe

1 secret mission in europe

1 'halfway house' with a bit of both in afghan

 

I think that would keep everyone happy.

Oddly enough the difficulty is reproducing Soviet tactical and operational art*. As a minimum you need a vzvod (platoon). You just don't see anything smaller. Though at Cut Throat we had a bob-on otdyel (section)...which was nice.

 

*Without getting into detail it's mainly about deployment of forces in echelons as needed. I can't speak for what works in airsoft and wouldn't try to I've only done the one game (where I had a great time) But to continue with that (Cut Throat) we started out, attitude wise, as Pipeline Troops and as the game escalated we tried to take on the persona of different echelons as they would have been deployed into the area culminating in a razvedka boem on Sunday morning. I hope that came across to the NATO players because it was for their benefit really. :) This was fairly light roleplaying which I know isn't everyone's cup of tea but I think it helps.

 

So, in summary yes I'd be up for a full on war.

Exactly, from the brit persepctive we got 1000 times more out of being hit by 'line abreast' soviet attacks firing from the hip as we tried to use accurate rifle fire to break up the assault than we did from any sneaking about or dropping off beacons etc.   Your attacks were pretty awesome and felt like what i imagine the cold war battles in dense woodland would have been like.   Likewsie the NVA attacking en masse in groups of 20 or so was awesome.

Proof will be in the pudding, I cant wait to get stuck into 2014 and with an Early Ops weekend, followed by a main event x 3 throughout the year, we should hit all the bars wer'e aiming for.

 

Hockwerk looked amazing watching the Warpact move across those open fields to engage our small units of NATO.  Visually amazing.

I can not wait for more cold war action after the last one.  I think a good out and out battle will be good a break from the norm.

Not impossible but expensive and could upset the neighbours.

I think we a couple of decent maroons and some good quality smokes we could at least create the 'oh shit' here they come effect with infantry charging from a smoke screen...

I'm in. The PKM is ready and have the vdv stuff all good to go. Only done one Cold War event so far and the lads are keen to do more.
We are now up against live, hostile targets. So, if Little Red Riding Hood should show up with a bazooka and a bad attitude, I expect you to chin the bitch.
