Red Storm East After Action Report – Maison – Part 2
May 7, 2014
Part 1: http://www.airsoftgitv.com/?p=7275
Upon learning that the package was behind a door not 20’ from me, I quickly began transmitting to my team, instructing them to make their way to the attic of building six. “Be sure to identify yourself when you come up the stairs, or they will shoot you.”
Once my squad arrived, I filled them in on what was happening. Our squad commander quickly tried to get on a line to our Commander but was unable to raise him. So, he sends a runner. Our runner ran all the way back to our FOB, then back to us. He was unable to find the commander but he did bring another squad and a platoon leader with him. At this point we outnumbered the militia by about 2 fold. Once we seized control of the package they decided to leave without causing a fight.
We put two men on the package and the other 14 of us formed around them. Point squad, security and rear security. We hit the shortest route out of the building, taking directions from friendly forces we passed to avoid firefights. The point squad lead us right into our FOB without firing a shot. Package secure.
Entrance to our FOB
Sunday, April 27th: Day Three
Sunday was probably my favorite day of this OP. The number of players had dwindled down over night and I think we landed on the perfect amount for the final day of the OP. I was warmed up, my kit had been systemized (I was running Gabe’s PIG UCR for the first time, so it took some getting used to), and I was familiar enough with the AO. My confidence level was perfect.
After Action on Day 3
This mission began in a much more organized fashion than the previous day. All of our squads were in-sync. We were to secure the 3rd floor of building 6. Squads 2 and 3 were to cover the first and second floors. We reached the target building very quickly, breached the door and made our way to the 3rd floor. We hardly encountered any resistance at all because of the quickness of our assault. We secured the building and I took up post on a corridor. Awaiting orders.
The FRAGO had finally come through. Tan forces had intel on an objective deep behind our lines. They were going to be making a push very soon and we had to do everything we could to keep them pushed back. This scenario resulted in a lot of firefights. Aggressive, close range firefights. The fact that this was the last scenario of the day also added to that aggression. I caught several BBs to the face and head during this portion of the game and shot more people in an hour than I think I ever had. It was insanity.
I am very fortunate to have attended this event. I would like to thank OLCMSS for inviting Gabe and I and I would also like to thank all of the vendors and players who attended. Without you guys, games like this would never happen. Airsoft is sustained by your dedication and loyalty to this hobby!
