Low intensity warfare, high stakes
Operation Swift Fox 19 is the recurring spring offensive between Ardea and the Republic of Kitoy over the decades-long fight for control of the Central Grafsten Highlands. You will be deployed as part of a unit of light infantry to find, fix and destroy (or displace) enemy forces in your area of operations.
This event will run continuously for 51 hours. We do not stop for night or poor weather. Make sure you are prepared for that.
Decide if you are Ardean or Kitoi Army, GDL insurgents or Kitoy Police (read on about these two), read the equipment lists and rules, and make your plans.
Note the changes and new features for this event:
- Ardea will be operating as dragoons, fighting and moving to battle or performing recon on foot, but with some vehicle support.
- Kitoy Army will have several vehicles, and a fixed base camp (maybe with buildings), though there will also be foot patrols and those deployed to remote outposts.
- Kitoy National Federal Police will deploy two officers in a marked vehicle to act as local guides for the Army, to add their own intelligence sources, and perform other missions and tasks. You should have previous law enforcement experience ffor this role, so contact us to discuss further and if approved to sign up for the remaining spot.
- The GDL, Grupo de Liberare is an insurgent group from a neighboring country, abusing international law to operate safe havens and smuggle items through the highlands. Full changes will be released later, but they will vary from the Ardean or Kitoy forces in:
- Weapons. Almost anything (available in the real world) is permitted, so if you want to bring your AK, you are encouraged to.
- Uniform. Most anything is allowed, as long as it doesn't match (different pants and blouse) to avoid pretending to be Ardean or Kitoy.
- Communications. None will be issued, and you may end up using your phones to text each other orders.
- Organization and tactics. The GDL will not be an oddly-clothed and equipped army, but will be organized and operate like a modern insurgency. This will provide a valuable and relevant training opportunity whether part of the unit, or opposing them.
- Rucking. While we encourage you to try to pack all equipment into a rucksack, it is not required. You may place all sustainment items such as sleeping systems into the Ready Bag (or box) and return to your supply cache — which will be in an area unlikely to be attacked by foreign troops — for meals and rest time.
- Medic Rules. You have no trained medics, so hits are casualties, no kill cards or medic supplies.
As always, if you wish to bring your vehicles, or other equipment not discussed, just contact us to work out details.
- The total event fee is $125.
- All payments must be received by noon on 21 March 2020.
- All payments are final and not-refundable.
- This event has limited participation: Only 25 each of Ardea, Kitoy or GDL, and 2 Police are permitted. After that, registration will be closed for that faction and no more sign ups are permitted. If there are dropouts with sufficient notice, we may open a few slots for late registration to fill the TOO.
- If you have signed up but cannot attend, payments are transferable to other attendees up to 30 days before the event, but may not be applied to other CWG events.
What to Bring
Read the rules and make sure you can meet the equipment requirements and expectations set forth above for the side you pick before you sign up.
A special list of GDL equipment changes will be provided before the sign up period, but the general equipment requirements list is a good guide you should read through. See the summary above for a sense of the variations.
National Police will be given a set off variations on uniform, weapon, identification and other equipment, but again can be expected to have almost all of the basic equipment requirements as well.
