Operation ROLLING THUNDER – Warning Order
This will be a 36hr TIER 1 COMBAT OPERATION.
Location: Westcott Venture Park, Aylesbury HP18 0XB.
(Please: note this postcode can take you to the old disused site entrance).
Navigate to Westcott and then follow signs for the main Venture park entrance where you will be met by TIER 1 staff.
Date: September 16/17/18.
The event will take place at a disused missile testing site and is around 600 acres in size. We have around 100 compounds, greenzones, irrigation ditches, disused aircraft hangars, a disused railway track and several large wooded areas to work with.
The operation will be set in Pakistan – as part of our ongoing story-line – and will involve Long range reconnaissance patrols, Observation posts, long overt patrols, including advancing to contact and clearing multiple compounds – one after the other. Airstrikes will be available on certain compounds, vehicles will be available including an APC, and the enemy will employ authentic Taliban shoot and scoot style tactics.
Those wishing to insert by helicopter should let TIER 1 know ASAP to ensure this capability will be available for you.
Please note: The compounds, which vary from single story and two story buildings to munition style bunkers, ALL are in various states of repair with many of them being derelict! Although this will add to the realism, we strongly promote a mature attitude when fighting through these structures and that safety is paramount.
All teams are to be complete on site no later than 10.30pm (no arrivals before 18.00hrs). Teams arriving later will have to notify TIER 1 prior to this event.
Safety and administrational briefs will take place on Friday evening at 10.30pm. Thereafter opposing forces will move to their respective tactical assembly areas (TAA) and await intelligence briefs and initial orders.
