Opposing Forces – Part I.

Many years ago, most airsoft games consists only of a few, poorly equipped men that were fighting each other without any great scenery nor mission background. Today many things changed and more and more milsim games and big(ger) airsoft events include story lines and complex mission objectives. To raise the bar of authenticity, better gameplay and overall fun, many organizers divide participating forces not only by strength, weaponry or experience: they demand certain look for individual groups or special loadouts for e.g. Civvies, Special Forces or VIPs. I really like games where you can tell by clothing/ by looks if somebody is on your side or not (e.g. desert/tan VS woodland/green).

Recently i fought against some Taliban-ish styled group (which lost, of course, hahaha πŸ˜‰ ) and thought that some of the guys are really looking “stupid”. Isn`t it that hard to optain propper shoes and tie a Shemagh in an appropriate way? Perhaps they googled “Taliban” and checked only a few pics… (lazy bastards!)

To help you building new impressions or just for your entertainment: let`s get a new category going: “Opposing Forces“! πŸ™‚

This new rubric deals with loadouts, weapons, tools`n`lifestyle, gear, equipment and pieces of clothing that refer to Talibans, Mujahiddeens, Jihad Warriors, Mercenaries and Insurgents from the 80ies till now!
I think we should start with a bunch of A`stan pictures (and adjoining countries) from recent times. Have fun! πŸ™‚

  1. One the pictures 4th from the bottom looks to be Charlie Wilson testing the heavy weapons he gave the Mujaheddin in the 80s to fight the Soviets.
