Combat Vietnam

 

September 9th 1968.

Vietnamese Central Highlands, West of Kontum.

 

Current Situation:

Deep in the Vietnamese jungle near the Laos and Cambodian borders elements of the United States Military have deployed a battle hardened infantry company to set up a stronghold position and establish a fire base in the area. The objective of this action is to establish a secure FOB to support reconnaissance and combat patrols for the investigation of suspected large scale enemy troop movements in the area. PAVN units have been reportedly moving reinforcements into the AO in what is believed to be an effort to bolster NLF units already operating against US interests.

 

US intelligence have received valuable intel suggesting the regional NLF Commander in liaison with newly arrived PAVN elements is planning a fresh offensive and the highland areas are being used for planning and preparation. Local support for the NLF is said to be high mainly due to a series of civilian forced evacuation and relocation programmes ending in the accidental killing of some village elders. The relocation programme conducted by US & ARVN forces  was the first large-scale military action this area of Vietnam has seen since the war began but it sure as hell seems that it won’t be the last…

What to expect:

This is a 24 hour Military Simulation exercise.

This is a force on force Vietnam war themed event with some limited role play. There will be a strong emphasis on the theme with objectives and uniform restrictions. Do not expect a skirmish style game with constant action. With this in mind please bring the right attitude to this event. Do not arrive expecting to go off task in search of a firefight, if this is your attitude then please do not book a ticket. We expect participants to follow the instructions from the chain of command to ensure a realistic and enjoyable event for all involved.

 

Tickets available: 31/08/21 at 19:00.

Tickets €90. A non refundable deposit of €40 will be required to secure a place.
