We are excited to announce your commanders for the "Red Strike" event at Blast Camp in Hobart, Indiana August 11 & 12, 2012
Our first commander is the captain of one of the largest woodsball teams in the world, with chapters in over twenty U.S. states as well as Germany, Australia, and Canada.
Leading the US Forces will be Steve "Necro" Kaltenbach of SAS Woodsball.
His opponent also leads a large, multi-state team and brings plenty of experience as a general and a field commander. After their performance at Living Legends this year we are confident that he will have no problem bringing the fight to the enemy.
Commanding the Soviet Spetsnaz will be Neil "Cool Breeze" Chittendon of Team Akkadian.
The combination of these two commanders, and this one-of-a-kind field on an actual US Army missile base, should make this a game to remember. We hope to see you there!
The date is January 1972. The US Army is preparing to shut down the last few Nike Missile sites.
However, as papers are being signed and material inventoried five special operators from the Soviet Union's Spetsnaz GRU are landing on a beach in Florida, having originated their voyage in Cuba. They have a bag full of US currency, some small arms, and map coordinates. At the same time other five-man teams of Spetsnaz are landing on other beaches, arriving on commercial flights, and crossing borders; all converging on the same geographic location. All have been provided with false identities and "sanitized" of anything that could connect them to the USSR.
Teams have instructions to travel to prescribed locations. Two teams will link up and verify that they have not been compromised. Once they are assured of their mutual security they are provided a new location to which they will travel to meet another two teams. This will continue until the entire unit is assembled on US soil. Until then none of them is told what the actual target, or mission, is. This is done to protect the security of the mission and deniability for the USSR.
Jump ahead two months and the entire Spetsnaz unit has converged on Nike Missile Site C47 in Northwest Indiana. The plan is an ambitious one; the Spetsnaz operators will seize control of the site and begin targeting US air traffic, both civilian and military. With the US military distracted with this crisis they hope to sneak in five TU-95 bombers armed with multiple missiles armed with nuclear warheads in an effort to strike as many major targets as they can before, ultimately, being brought down.
Why now? You might call this the Soviet Union's "Hail Mary" play. It Is becoming more and more apparent to the staunch conservatives in the Soviet government and military that the US can simply afford to build more weapons than the Soviet Union. Intelligence also indicates that the US military is less in favor of the approach taken at the Strategic Arms Limitation Talks (SALT) last year in Helsinki, Finland, in 1969 and more in favor of accelerating the arms race to break-neck speeds, confident that the USSR will have to simply give up because they won't be able to keep up with the spending of the US.
So the only other choice is to strike now while the sides are as well-matched as they are likely to get. Their theory is "better to take our chances now than assure defeat later."
That means this is all or nothing…winner take all. There are really only two probable outcomes; Either the Soviet Union will catch America off-guard and deal her a crippling blow, leaving only the task of marching in and cleaning up, or the plan will be less effective than predicted and the US will decimate the Soviet Union.
And that brings us to zero hour. Spetsnaz are creeping in the shadows outside the fence at Site C-47, and the brave US servicemen inside have no idea what's coming. Can the soldiers manning a "secure" missile base far inside US territory possibly fend off highly-trained special operators long enough for reinforcements to arrive, or will this be the first slip in the fall of the mightiest nation in the history of the world?

Col. Strelnikov sat in the shadows outside C-47 and listened to his radio as the different pre-assault units checked in.
"This is Alpha One leader. We have finished mining the entrance road leading to the base. Anyone leaving will have a nasty surprise."
"Affirmative. Standby and prepare for go" replied Col Strelnikov
"This is Alpha Two leader. The radio jammers are in place outside the fences. Give us the go and no one more than 200 feet from the base will hear anything from this site."
"Understood. Stand by to activate."
"This is Alpha Three leader. The two men on north security patrol have been neutralized. They did not get a chance to radio in before they were eliminated."
""Are you sure?"
"Excellent. Cut the fence and prepare everyone to enter the base. Secure the Communications Substation and set up a perimeter as planned. We will operate form there and proceed to take control of the station."
"This is Alpha Four leader. All snipers are in place around the site."
"That is what I've been waiting for. Alpha Two cut the communication lines and activate all jammers. All units move to the insertion point. The Amerikan pig dogs won't know what hit them."
