Airsoft - Military games or serious training aid

Discussion in 'The Training Wing' started by Alpha55, May 5, 2004.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. We run an Airsoft site called Alpha 55 here at Pentre Halkyn in North wales. Being ex-military All our games are based on military simulations, the weapons we use, although classed as toys are accurate in detail and weight to their real counterparts. I see a market for the training of the military with these weapons as the nearest thing to the real thing... anyone out there agree? if so check out our web site at or come and talk to us.
  2. air soft guns :lol: . ohh how much fun .9 eye injuries in basra palace
    alone doctor quote you bunch of pricks
  3. Nice to see we get intelligent responses on this forum
  4. Aw, come off it guys. Leave 'em alone...

    Methinks some of these have a rather strange cam cream fetish! :D
  7. Is this for real?

    Tell me its a wind up.... Surely noone would post such tosh on a site such as ARRSE and expect to get away without being mocked into the middle of next week.

    Someone forward the link to BB... its right up her wannabe alley :D
  8. someone should tell him he iss cammed up very... nicely, but the hoop in his ear would ask people to shoot him (in the right light)
  9. closely realistic as real weapons firing blanks.

    Or using millions of pounds worth of laser firing equipment to simulate kills.

    I suppose a BB will fire accurately to 300metres then?

    Sorry mate...but no. Go back to the TA.

    And take out that sh**ging ear ring.
  10. Got you talking though didnt it???????????????? Bring it on!! :twisted: [/url]
  11. I read a good article recently about how the US do MOUT training (that's FIBUA for Yanks). Anyway, the gist was that the US Army were using laser kit and having problems as although soldiers were getting shot they didn't take it seriously - just a video game. The US Marines used paintball and as getting shot in the arse with one on auto hurts the troops took it all seriously.

    Probably wouldn't be any good for outside though.
  12. Alpha 55 you going to offer ARRSE users discount then and promise not to cry when we wipe the floor with you and earring boy :D
  13. Sounds like our esteemed red capped colleague has issued a who'd be in the team?

  14. Paddy got any Airsoft firing armour we could borrow? :wink:
