Out of the Box Industries Presents: Operation Sidewinder

Out of the Box Industries Presents: Operation Sidewinder March 22, 2014

In world news tonight, the United States strongly denied involvement in a weekend raid against a Russian research facility in the mountains of the Altai Republic. Speaking through an interpreter, Russian President Vladimir Putin strongly condemned the raid and promised swift and decisive action against those found to have violated the sovereignty of the Russian state. Anti-American protests have broken out across Russia and global leaders are calling for a swift, diplomatic resolution to the situation before tensions escalate farther. Reporting from Moscow, this is Sandra Callahan, CNN news.

Out of the Box Industries is proud to present, Operation Sidewinder. This will be a military simulation scenario with play being broken into two phases, the outcome of the first having a direct impact on the scenarios and objectives of the second. We will be utilizing a strict chain of command, uniform requirements as well as ammunition and fire restrictions. Additionally, we will be utilizing several role players and a strict R.O.E. Will be put into place that is expected to be followed by players at all times. Unlike other military simulation events, shooting will not be the only viable solution and in some cases, can complicate the scenario for their factions.

The factions participating in Sidewinder will be the following:

75th Ranger Regiment – The United States Army Rangers are some of the worlds most elite warriors and are often utilized in deployments around the world where their advanced training and prowess can be used to maximum lethality. Rangers will be deployed into two platoons, each consisting of the following. 4 9 man squads with each platoon containing a Platoon Leader, Platoon Sgt., Medic and a forward observer team consisting of the FO and his radio man. The Rangers will additionally have a commanding officer, executive officer, cia liason and a radio operator. Uniform requirements will be as follows. Multi-Cam, Despat or Tri-Color Desert. (72 players)

24th Independent Special Forces Brigade GRU – The Russian Federation's special operations troops are amongst the deadliest in the world. The soldiers who make up the 281st Independent Special Forces Unit have seen action in Chechynia as well as numerous other theaters of operation making them some of the most hardened fighters on the planet. 4 9 man squads with each platoon containing a Platoon Leader, Platoon Sgt., Medic and a forward observer team consisting of the FO and his radio man. The Spetsnaz forces will be led by a commanding officer, KGB intelligence officer as well as a communications officer. Uniform requirements will be as follows. M81 woodland, Tiger Stripe, or Flora. (72 players)

Role-Players – The residents of the remote Russian Village bordering the research compound derive their income from the oil fields in which they work. Hardened by generations of living in the harsh Russian mountains these men and women are stubborn and survivable. Not soldiers these men and women can be pushed into defending themselves but their strategic value can be to a commander who understands the value of the hearts and minds of the local populace. The Role-Players will be representative of the residents of the village and will be led by their Mayor. Their are those in the village however who aren't happy with the rule of the Russian Federation and may be willing to undermine the efforts of those they see as war criminals. Uniform requirements will be civilian clothing only. There is to be no military attire, helmets, pads or body armor allowed at all for this faction. Role-Players are by special request only. (26 players)

Squad Breakdown:

Like other Out of the Box Events, we will be utilizing the class system for this event. Squads will be made up of the following. Please note, specialist roles are optional but not utilizing those roles may but your faction at a disadvantage.

Each squad will be broken into two fire teams. Each team will have a team leader (rifleman), a SAW gunner, Engineer (203) and a Combat Life Saver (Medic). Additionally each squad will have a squad leader. (9 men per squad)

Each platoon will additionally have a Platoon Leader and Platoon Sergeant (Rifleman), Platoon Medic and a forward observer team with a FO and a radio operator.

Ammunition Restrictions:

Because neither force is operating out of a military base or forward position, ammunition and re-supply will be a large part of the game. In order to simulate limited amounts of ammunition and weaponry carried into battle the following restrictions will be in place.

1. Semi-Auto fire only for all players with the exception of the support gunners. This increases the tactical value of the support gunner as well as the limited amounts of ammunition available to players during play.

2. Each player may have no more than 4 fully loaded mid cap magazines on the field. As a standard mid capacity magazine holds between 100 – 120 rounds this would mean for a 30 round magazine up to 16 magazines of real steel equivalent. Alternately, players using a gas blowback rifle (not polar star) or using low capacity or real cap magazines may carry as many on their person as they wish.

3. Players may only reload under the following conditions.
1. During the lunch break, all players may reload all magazines.
2. Each command element may request resupply twice. Once during the morning and once during the afternoon. At that point, all players at the re-supply location may reload all magazines.
3. Special events during the course of play will allow players to resupply.

I just have one suggestion...

As you said, we at RR wish to use accurate Russian loadouts but it would help if you expand the uniform options to say, anything that is Russian based. Flora is mainly used only by the Army and is almost completely phased out by digi flora. You only see flora nowadays on various body armor that is left over. "Modern" Russian loadouts (2000-today) can depict various camo patterns depending on the unit. Regular Army typically uses flora and digi flora while "Spetsnaz" units from the MVD and FSB use a wide variety from kamysh, SS-Summer, Les, Izlom, KLMK, Sever, solid OD (gorkas) and even new "gucci" patterns like SURPAT and Spectre and so on (all of these green based btw). So, can you widen the uniform options to anything that was approved by Putin?

Other than that Im good

We will be ready to Remove Many Kebabs and Put HATO in Ground once more. DAVAI, DAVAI, DAVAI!!

I am going to try for attendance. Right around this time is when track is training, but we aren't going to meets, so there should be a good possibility that I will be able to go unless Academic World Quest falls on this date, which it hopefully shouldn't.

Berezka, TTSKO, and the various version of the Gorka suits are not uncommonly used by airsofters.

Relim role players are representing villagers and as such wont really be combattants per say. Their role is to represent villagers caught in the middle. There will be events that allow them to possibly take up arms but primarily they are non combattants

This sounds like fun, I think I'll have to mark this on my calendar.
Also, I think I would be good for a role-player

Event listing is up guys as well as expanded rules from the initial posting. Please note that the rules are very strict on this one and they are that way for a reason. We are approaching this event with the mindset that tactics, teamwork and solid communication will win the day. With limited ammunition and opportunities to resupply players will be forced to weaponize their minds and truly pick their battles as well as listen to their leadership about coordinating engagements rather than "freelancing". We realize that this may not be the play style for everyone but are excited to offer a new level of realism to the game we all love.

I will announce when registration opens and post details as well as update the original posting when we do.
