Welcome to OP Fiery Spoon V (OPFSV)



OPFSV is a 2 day airsoft milsim event with a lot of pyro, fireworks, explosions and smoke. Set in the fictional Eastern European nation of Spoonavia formed after the Second Russian Civil war, OPFSV features night and day play, pyro, fireworks, smoke, and vehicles. It is held outside Regina, SK on a 80 acre field with forest, bush and open areas, roads and trails, and lots of bunkers and buildings. Water hazards are pending based on the weather this summer; explosions are guaranteed.

Free camping is available for the weekend.

Field Location: Regina, Saskatchewan - field is approximately 1/2 hour north of Regina.

Story Background:
Pre 2013. See historical Timeline. http://opfieryspoon.ca/thread/35/op-historical-intel

Fall 2013. The eastern European nation of Spoonavia erupted into bloody civil war. Following a series of punishing defeats in the field, the rebel army collapsed and the cause of the Spoonavian Liberation Front was swept away, seemingly tossed into the dustbin of history. Government forces moved swiftly into the rebel strongholds and rooted out those not loyal to the regime. Even though many either fled or went into hiding, blood ran in the streets and towns were razed entirely as vigorous ethnic cleansing occurred before the world reacted and RDU and UN peacekeepers entered the war torn nation. Peace was eventually enforced, but not before thousands died.

2014. With the onset of a brutal winter and the presence of peacekeepers, conflict was halted. By springtime, peace had settled over the nation and rebuilding had begun. By fall, the oil pipeline from the RDU through to Europe was reactivated and repairs were well underway at the university and airport. Peaceful protests demanding elections were held in the streets under the watchful eyes of UN and RDU monitors, with the government agreeing to hold them in early 2015. The news on TV told stories about life returning to normal. By the end of the year, only a handful of international peacekeepers were slated to remain.

However, under the surface, Spoonavia was anything but peaceful. Opposition to the government was strong and many believed the elections would never happen. Enough people had escaped or gone into hiding that the Liberation Front was very much alive, planning and rebuilding, waiting for a chance for vengeance. At a hidden location fighters began regrouping, trained and armed by foreign military contractors retained by wealthy Spoonavian ex-pats.

Then there were the rumours people still told about what happened at the hospital…

2015. Now, two years have passed since the end of the Spoonavian Civil War. With still no dates announced for the elections, protests grew in the springtime. Students, workers, and citizens unhappy with their current state established a permanent presence in the central square in the capital city.
Sept 1st. One hour before a planned visit by the President, an explosion happened at the Spoonavian Power Works. Luckily, only 5 workers were killed and the President escaped unharmed. However, the retribution was swift and harsh. Overnight the army replaced the police in the square. On the morning of Sept 2nd martial law was declared and a general mobilization of the army ordered. All across Spoonavia men and women left their families to return to the army in order to defend their nation.

Simultaneously a second group sprang into action as the Dedicated Second Front sent out signals to hidden cells and loyal fighters abroad. Plans were made to openly oppose the government and rise again before mobilization could be completed.

Sept 4th. Within days, a rapid investigation by the government claimed the explosion was the result of a bomb planted by powers hostile to Spoonavia. Stories immediately circulated that wealthy rebels who had fled abroad were now working in coordination with foreign interests and banking concerns and had attempted a coup.
Sept 5th. Early in the morning the army was ordered to move in and clear the square. The demonstrators were given one last chance to disperse by noon and declined. Mechanized elements of the Spoonavian Army advanced only to be met with RPG fire from Second Front fighters infiltrated amongst the protestors. Carnage ensued when the army returned fire, followed by a series of explosions that rocked the city as Second Front cells activated and took out key installations such as bridges, train stations, and what remained of the Power Works.

1700 hrs. Spoonavia again erupts into open warfare as the Second Dedicated Front openly takes to the field in an attempt to overthrow the government of Spoonavia.

There are two teams for OPFSIV. They are as follows:

Teams

Second Dedicated Front – Rebels – Red

There is no uniform colour distinction for this OP, with 2 reasons for this.
1. This is a civil war and thus uniforms are drawn from a common stock.
2. PBP is a very green field.

Please choose one of these teams and sign up in the registration area.

Armbands will be issued to players as the defining factor as to what team they are on.

ASC Server Maintenance
Sep 12, 2014 - 1:29 PM - by Mantelope
Hey all, you may have noticed some technical problems with the forums lately; our server HDDs are reporting some errors and they need to be replaced. We've scheduled this to happen at 2AM on the 14th, early Sunday morning, and it could take up to six hours or even longer if there are complications. Rest assured that we have offsite backups so there is no risk of catastrophic data loss. If you need any information for Sunday morning like game details, I recommend copying them down some time before Saturday evening.

If anyone's counting, the server has now been up without a restart for 936 days, a little over two and a half years.

Lifetime Membership Charity Auction

You read that right. Are you tired of paying a yearly fee to keep a big inbox and that fancy ass tag. Well here's your chance to do it with all the money going to Wounded Warrior.

Here is how it works. There might be multiple winners pending on how the bidding goes. That means you can bid the same as someone but that can only happen once. So two people can bid the same price the next bidder has to bid higher then them by $5. All increased bids must be $5 more then the previous. You can add onto someone's bid if you like them say +$20 to Aqua's bid etc. Bidding starts at $70. Because I'm awesome bidding begins on my birthday September 14 and runs until one of my favorite holidays Halloween.

Feel free to ask questions if things aren't clear from now and when the contest starts. When it starts bid high and bid often.

Blacksheep MilSim Squad Tactics Training
Apr 10, 2014 - 11:56 AM - by foxtrot-one7


When: May 17th 2014
Where: Niagara Quartermaster Airsoft Field
--->Map, click here

Cost: $55

(patches included)




Ever wanted to participate in real MILSIM training?
Need to brush up on your Squad Tactics?



“Squad Tactics is the foundation for MILSIM. It’s a gamechanger for those who attend this training and achieve proficiency. Any level of tactical operations is based on squads doing their job – a platoon is 3+squads working together, a company is 12+ squads working together, a battalions 45+ squads working together. Obviously there are increasing levels of command, control and communication required at higher levels.

Training is conducted using common practices from the USArmy – Crawl, Walk and Run phases. The Crawl phase is about two hours of classroom instruction. The Walk phase is about one hour of open field manoeuvres to practice the principles taught in the classroom. The Run phase is about a five hour live fire exercise where squads defend and attack – there is plenty of trigger time. Each battle is followed by an After Action Review to discuss lessons learned.”


Throughout the day you will learn the following:

-Leadership Building Blocks
-Leadership Procedures
-Take Charge Minute
-Five Point Contingency Plan
-Reporting Enemy Information
-METT-T
-OCOKA
-Actions on Capturing POWs
-The Clock Method
-Warning Order
-Operation Order (OPORD)
-Arm & Hand Signals
-Individual Movement Techniques
-Buddy Team Movement/Communication
-Temporary Fighting Positions
-Fighting Position Characteristics
-The Fire Team
-Fire Team Bounding
-The Squad
-Squad Movement
-Fire Team Defensive Position
-Squad Defensive Position
-Platoon & Company Operations
-Offensive Combat Drill
-Defence – Priority of Work
-Defence – Responsibilities



Blacksheep6's MILSIM manuals will be avalible for on-site purchase for an additional $10

2015 Airsoft Charity Calendar!
Apr 02, 2014 - 10:13 PM - by Aquamarine


It's officially ready AND for sale!!! The 2015 charity calendar produced by my studio, Pozland Photography is officially ready go to out the door!!!
We are using money raised by this 'Dangerous Toys' calendar to help those affected by the tsunami in the Minamisoma region of Japan. We plan on forwarding funds to the Save Minamisoma Project (http://saveminamisoma.org/) in hopes of of bringing fresh water, food and assistance to those who lost homes and families during the 2011 earthquake and tsunami.

I have spent a couple well over a year and a half putting this together, including girls who are involved in airsoft as players, as spouses of players or those who are simply interested in the military. Our girls come from various parts of the world such as Japan (where most of the photos were shot), Russia, Germany, Canada, New Zealand and even Brazil!)

Our calendars are only $20+ shipping and can be purchased either directly through me via EMT or through our website at http://airsoft-calendar.squarespace.com/ (where credit cards ARE accepted). Our first-run batch is ONLY 40 copies and more will be produced if there is call.

We would like to thank all of those involved in the assistance of production. Our models, location owners, make-up artists and those who donated clothing and airsoft guns for the photo shoots! Help make someone's life a little better and pick up a calendar or two for yourself, your husband's man-cave, or as a gift for a friend!

*noted, the calendar is a swimsuit/lingerie calendar, but is being given a PG-13 rating and is more or less safe for those over 13 years of age... in other words, if you've hit puberty, then it's safe*

Threats of Physical Harm
Mar 11, 2014 - 11:58 PM - by BloodSport
I should not be having to make a post about this, threatening other members with physical harm is against the forum rules, and can also become an issue with the authorities if the member threatened deems it necessary to contact the police.

Tonight I was provided proof from a member who received a threat from another member to act with physical harm at an upcoming event.

Said member has been given his only warning to never do so again here. Next time it is full removal from the site for ever.

I am also providing said members information to the event hosts for them to make their own decision on whether to allow him access to their events or not.

If you threaten physical harm, and the receiving party decides to take it to the police and they investigate we will give up your information if it is done via ASC to the police. This includes your age verification information.

No one needs or deserves threats of physical assault over anything to do with out sport like that.

Nuff said.
