HIGH EVERYBODY! I just wan't to hear other people on face-punch's opinion about Milsims. (military simulators) because me and my new team the Kudryavka, or little curly, are thinking about starting milsims, and where the best ones are. We want milsims in the state of Missouri. We have a heavy weapons guy, a CQB, a sniper, and some guys w/ assault rifles, but the biggest weapons we've got is the famous world war two tank, the T-34, but scaled down to 3/5 scale, and a full scale soviet howitzer, both fire bags of air-soft BBs. We are looking to win milsim matches. We are going full Russian Spetsnaz, we have an RPK, a Dragonov, two or three AK-74s, and an AK-47. Unfortunately some of our squad must be put in our tank and the Howitzer crew. So post back and give us some locations.
you are looking to "win" milsim matches milsim isn't about winning or losing really, it's not a competitive atmosphere at all
[QUOTE=rickybobbyis1;35490993]We have a heavy weapons guy, a [B]CQB[/B],.[/QUOTE] You have a CQB guy? Just one? What happens if the entire enemy team is in a building, do you just send him in?
Serious question: Is everyone on your squad 18 or older? That's a requirement for all milsim ops.

[QUOTE=Stupideye;35491008]you are looking to "win" milsim matches milsim isn't about winning or losing really, it's not a competitive atmosphere at all[/QUOTE] It can be, just in a different way than a speedball sort of competitive. You compete against yourself to get better as an airsofter and as an airsofting team. As a show of this and as a result of this, you may be victorious more often at games and events. [QUOTE=notrabies;35491090]Serious question: Is everyone on your squad 18 or older? That's a requirement for all milsim ops.[/QUOTE] Most, but certainly not all. If you look, there are plenty of milsim events you can attend that don't have this rule. Just make your team official, make things formal. Get some training with each other, divvy yourselves into units, each with a leader and possibly with specialized positions. When you're ready to kick ass, start scanning airsoft forums (ASR, ASF, ect.) and look for local games. Unless you're lucky, you'll have to travel farther for better events. Find a nice national event like Irene, Blacksheep, ect. and ask your team mates about it well in advance. Get a plan worked out to attend. Make it happen. Once you start going to events team members will be more willing to attend future events.
we were just thinking about doing milsims, and I was just wondering what face-punch thinks of milsims and if they are really worth doing. We are currently just doing small time open matches at fields in Missouri. Most of the team is 18, and we just want some places to take the tank and field gun for a spin. We only have one CQB guy because he bout the gun before he joined the team and he doesn't have enough money to buy a new one. We don't mind only having one because most of the places we play at are just open fields that would be great for a field gun.
[QUOTE=rickybobbyis1;35490993]the famous world war two tank, the T-34, but scaled down to 3/5 scale, and a full scale soviet howitzer[/QUOTE] Not to sound like a dick, but those are some pretty big claims without pictures. Do you have any media of these, I have a friend who's looking to procure base parts for a tank and would likely be interested in how you built yours. And if you could afford a tank, can't you afford to re-equip the CQB guy?
lol win milsim matches As far as I'm concerned there is two types of Milsim, a scripted one, and one where its sort of sandbox. Scripted - its set in stone usually who will win, and theres a lot of LARP involved Sandbox - You're given missions, and it's up to the team to decide how you want to achieve that goal, and nobody is set to win. Then again I could be totally fucking wrong but thats just how I look at things.
I misread the title as Muslims.
@catbarf I have used this sight to help me build my tank. (note) you need to register to the website before you can actually view the tanks. Daves page helped me out the most [url]http://www.scaledtanks.com/news.php[/url] P.S. I asked him about re-equipping him, but he doesn't want to get rid of his gun.

The engineering of building a working gun at a reduced scale is definitely beyond what that site provides.
It seems that a lot of FP has a quiet hatred for milsim games. Why is this?
[QUOTE=rivershark;35498771]It seems that a lot of FP has a quiet hatred for milsim games. Why is this?[/QUOTE] most of ifap is pretty casual when it comes to airsoft/isn't mature enough to get into milsim i used to do milsim but eh, not my thing
IMHO it's the only way to get away from 12 year olds and high-caps, so it's what I do.
Milsim seems kind of overrated, there's only so much you can do for immersion. For instance, restricting everyone to realcaps/30 rounds per mag is not okay because, unlike real life, you can miss a perfectly aimed shot easily (I figure it works out to be about 1.5 to 2x as much ammunition as is carried in real life). Proper lingo and fieldcraft is difficult to get down without lots of practice or at least a team to work with, something not everyone has a chance at, and it's barely worth mentioning the other stuff like scripted events and what not. Enforce ammo limits, which railroads players into behaving a certain way, herd them subtlely in a few others ways, suddenly high quality game. No milsim necessary.
I like airsoft, but not enough to spend three days in a row digging trenches and shit like some hardcore milsims. I play airsoft to have fun, see the results of upgrading my guns, and do funny stuff with my friends. I don't want to do the "dirty work" like sleeping on cots in trenches and eating SOS for a week.
I'd love to play serious milisim. For a Columbian Drug Lord vs. DEA game we had at my field I got into character kinda it was fun, I didn't care about the fact we lost horribly and the game was run pretty badly.

Remember we've moved onto the modern times, us Americans spend more money on Air conditioning for our tents then we do on our space program. None the less yeah Milsim can require some backbone, but i've seen small milsim events thats just a bunch of guys going out and having fun, with no set script, just sort of "this is your mission, execute it the best way you can". Vehicles are always cool to see as well.
killer's scale of milsim donut steal speedball----------regular airsoft----------milsim----------hardcore milsim------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------eastwind
What is Eastwind?
its this cold war shit. the only problem with it is in addition to the $200 you have to spend on the tickets to get in. You'll also end up spending like $400 in buying "period correct" gear. I guess it's pretty cool if you have the dosh, but you're better off doing a more modern milsim.
Isn't that the same with most big games? Operation Blacksheep (Pine Plains) was $180 and in the end I'm investing like $1000 in gear and guns.
Eastwind was the super serious "Russia vs. UN" thing for 9 days where you needed things like period correct flashlight and gear. So many stupid regulations.
That sounds awesome if it weren't so sad.
CodeMonkey. If I can get this event off the ground, it'll be much less restrictive. You can use whatever gun you want to get the job done(granted if you've got foreign weapons you'll be placed on the Rebels side), and whatever uniform loadout you want(Hell if the rebels want to wear MultiCam, be my guest, it's not like its impossible to get.) The only restrictions i'm really placing are on the US team Uniform requirements: ACU, Woodland MARPAT, ABU, MultiCam, ATACS Gun requirements: All based on position in fire team, this will be updated later.
You can go to Eastwind as a "day player", meaning you'll only be playing during daylight and you won't be spending the night at the field. Gear restrictions are WAY more lenient as well.
[QUOTE=TheDon;35503642]Eastwind was the super serious "Russia vs. UN" thing for 9 days where you needed things like period correct flashlight and gear.

That's actually kind of what OP Mason relic up here in Canada is except only over two days and I think it's more casual milsim.

I'm lost. I just came in and saw people talking about something called Eastwind so I was like "Oh, neat kinda"
[QUOTE=CodeMonkey3;35503942]What event is this and where? I'm lost.

This will be in South Florida so it's probably a long drive/flight for you since you live in somewhere thats not in florida.
