13 posts in this topic

Hey all here is a pic of my VC loadout (I'm 3rd from the left)

VC pyjamas and scarf

Coolie hat

Chicom Vest

US Claymore bag

AKM w/ 8x mags

 

Without doubt the CHEAPEST loadout I have ever done coming in at under £45 :)

 

So anybody else got a VC or US loadout from the period?

Nice to see someone doing a VC loadout as everyone always seem to want to be US. I want to try vietnam airsoft at some point.

Hey Alex, I see from some of your other posts that you play at AWA Herts, I marshall at Gunman Airsoft and its not a million miles from AWA Herts (down the M11 and then A11, I work in London and regularly drive down there after nights to shoot and it takes an hour from London).

 

 

Anyway, Gunman are running another Vietnam Weekender on 18th-19th June. Still plenty of spaces (I will probably be running the VC team B) ) available for all sides (US, Aussie, NVA and VC). Here is a link to the Gunman forum for booking:

Any questions or if you just fancy a look at some of the other photos from the last Vietnam weekender just pm me. In fact when I get round to it I might post up some of the pics anyway :)

Oh and one other thing, if you want to play and dont have the gear, Gunman has spare gear to loan out.

 

Any way here are some more pics:

I got all my stuff from e-bay from this seller: http://stores.ebay.co.uk/Saigon-Surplus/_i...1513&_pgn=1

 

Its hit-and-miss what he has in though. Soldier of Fortune has some sets of PJs, NVA boonies and other bits in their re-enactors section. Check this link: http://www.sofmilitary.co.uk/reenactors/index.asp

 

Its a bit of a trawl but its all in the US Vietnam section.

 

In the photos I am wearing a black PJ top ( some of the guys just bought their PJs straight from Tesco for £10) and some loose cotton trousers.

 

Chicoms are available for £12 in loads of places. (Airsoft world, Flecktarn.co.uk etc)

 

Hope this helps.

I have about 50 more pics from this event but dont have any others. Sorry.

 

I'm normally shooting myself, but in this game I was the US interpreter for a little while so I got my camera out. The other pics were taken before and after.

Photos look so cool.

 

That said, in the one of the US attrocities, I didn't realise that the VC wore help for heroes bands :P

 

The WE M16 VN is gonna do so much for Namsoft IMO!

 

EDIT: In the picture of the VC guys up top, what's the long boltie being used, the only thing I can think it'd be would be the Kar98?

It does look a little like a Lee-Enfield but the VC and NVA did use some of the Russian Mosin-Nagant aswell as the Mauser Kar98s but they also used Arisakas when they captured them from the Japanese!

Okay got some more pics of last weekends Gunman Khe Sanh 1972 weekender. Even with the sh*tty weather the three days of fighting culminating in a rushed evac by the US as the Khe Sanh Airfield was overrun, was fantastic.

 

All the pics from the event are here:
