Special Frontline Dispatch

In a change from the usual skirmish format at S.W.A.T. a ‘Special Themed’ event was held on the 7th March 2010. Loosely based on the BAFTA and Oscar winning film ‘Hurt Locker’ this was probably the best day this correspondent has ever spent Airsofting.

As ever S.W.A.T. continued with the innovations both in game play and style with the use of the whole ‘Urban Site’ (based at the former Saighton Army camp Nr Chester). The game saw the use of the whole site for the first time since its opening and this led to some interesting 360 degree warfare with surprises coming from all directions.

The senario involved the Jihadeema Vs Special Forces with the peace being kept by the Marshalls taking on the role of UN Peacekeepers complete with the famous Blue Caps.

What made a huge difference with this skirmish was the limitation on numbers with only experienced regulars attending (as opposed to a ‘normal’ walk on day). Each faction was given advanced notice of scenarios and able to make plans and organise without seeing each others plans. As with real warfare, when it came down to the day plans had to change with scenarios purposely being chopped and changed as well as the ever changing tactical situation. This challenged both the faction’s leaders and team members (not counting the anguish this caused the UN Marshalls!).

Highlights from the day included the great suicide bombing of the Special Forces HQ while we where all out fighting! (Don’t think we’ll be leaving that lightly guarded again!). The searching of so called friendly’s with guns stuffed and hidden in unusual places! The great job my ‘Charlie’ team did in supporting and keeping the bad guys off our bomb disposal expert Andy who did a sterling job. I suppose even getting my ass shot off whilst trying to trace an IED Det-Cord was good fun as well. You know you’ve had a great day when all your muscles ache and you nearly drop-off to sleep in the middle of having your dinner!
