Any military uniform/pattern is welcome!  As always!  The setting for the OP will be high altitude alpine woodland terrain.  Lots of granite and coniferous trees.

WEAPONS:
All modern and vintage weapons accepted.  We strive to re-enact the battle more than to be strict with gear.

The OP will be divided into 3 evolutions with a combat chow break mid-day in the field. Make sure you carry food and water.  The scenario will  involve using military vehicles to carry out the missions.  Some recon will be in very high altitude.

No waiver on file with the CAA?  You must have one on file to operate with the Cimmerians
