Dress CodeThis is not a strict reenactment. Many participants will show up with modern camo/clothing and equipment. If you have a somewhat authentic-looking outfit, please wear it. If not, we may provide you with a loaner item that will distinguish you from the opposing faction.If you'd like to be on with the VC, we sell beige boonie hats for $7 each and Chicom Type 56 chest rigs for $20 each at the field. You can also order items for either faction in advance from other online sellers using Stockman's extensive list linked HERE.
Phase 1: Occupation (11:00-13:00)The GI faction will be split into two task forces called Dingo and Raven.Dingo is tasked with inserting into the field through the 1st Entrance and moving to their self-respawn (Pallet Base) where they can drop off any extra supplies they may have. Then, they are to advance into Nui Dat (MAC Complex) where they will raise their Australian flag on the tower and defend it from any VC threats for the remainder of the operation.Raven is tasked with going in light and fast to destroy five enemy weapons caches located at Alpha Base, Bravo Base, Charlie Base, Gully Base, and the Prison. To demolish each cache, the fuse must be lit to detonate the charge, the enemy flag must be thrown to the ground, and the location being destroyed must be radioed in on channel 1. After Dingo has secured Nui Dat, they may send some of their own to assist with Raven's mission.Meanwhile, the VC faction will have been given 15 minutes before startex to drop off any extra supplies they may have at their self-respawn (Wolves' Den) before getting into position around the field in anticipation of the GI insertion. The VC will have the difficult task of defending all five of their weapons caches and sending two to three fighters to use guerrilla tactics to slow down Dingo's progress. During this phase, the VC may not be inside of the Nui Dat fence, but they may shoot into it.
Phase 2: Redacted (13:00-14:00)Each faction will be given orders for a secret mission that will be revealed at the start of this phase. Intel is very limited:
Phase 3: STAND TO ARMS! (14:00-15:00)At 14:00, all GI forces will return to Nui Dat and defend it from the VC who will attempt to capture and hold it before endex by raising their flag in the tower.
