I would say it's an improvement over the Swedish model, at least when considering an airsoft game: more room to move around (also field cots fit in better) and better ventilation. The only gripe is the lack of fittings for a stove, but this can be remedied with some work. The slightly increased weig...

So you mean that it is good to make your drinking as hard as possible so you are not tempted to drink too much too fast? Nice logic Well, sort of. :D Not really "as hard as possible", but as I said, if you are easily tempted to drink, there's a possibility you will exhaust your water supply, unless...

I have warm memories from eating knäckebrot and beef jerky in about all Bergets I've been to. I always keep at least some jerky with me at all times, because it packs very small and besides tasting good, really keeps you going. Some people might get nasty gas from eating jerky. Better find out if yo...

A related tip: if at all possible, bring an e-tool. Besides digging ditches around the tents, these can be rather useful for the fine art of foxhole digging. The modern tri-fold types are good, because they don't take much space. If you are planning to buy one, go for an army issue shovel, they're t...

MrMedic, I stand corrected. Although the PsyOps must have brought a healthy dose of paranoia to the "real" civilians and some very interesting situations, I feel that in combat it just sucks to have people with one type of armband on both sides, uniformed or not. Well, can't really blame anyone, as ...

Generally the sides were pretty easy to tell apart pretty quickly, as the combination of light/dark camo and a very visible armband worked OK. However, I too think the OD vs camouflage combined with armband would work better for balance purposes - desert camo just generally is less effective in fore...

One important thing along good rainwear are warm clothes, like a pullover, as it tends to get surprisingly cold when it pours. Wool or fleece are the best alternatives, as both keep you somewhat warm even when soaked. Take many extra (wool) socks with you. It really helps the morale to change to dry...

Oh come on, helmets also keep the rain off and some serve well as cooking pots too! Seriously, I bet the crew gives some consideration to helmet wearing badasses, along with those sporting flak vests, if they see you wearing one. Of course, I might be wrong too. Surviving the airstrikes was quite ea...

Along with our fanatical commander Rakowski who demanded to be saluted even in the field because he was such a Man, defying snipers and other sneaky bastards, I gotta hand it over to the Russians playing (at least) in the Poldavian side. Always in good spirits, always on the move, and nasty weather ...

skinner: The terrain is somewhat rough. Lots of rocky hills, dense forest, quite a bit of swamp-like soddy places and there might even be snakes. I would suggest something that supports your ankle and protects well. I'm going for well-treated traditional leather combat boots (Finnish Army M/91 or M/...

Before any weight issues (seriously?), one should consider: 1) Reliability 2) Performance 3) Role in the squad 4) Coolness factor! An SMG might be easy to carry, but an RPK with a 3000bb drum will seriously boost your team's firepower. :wink: The possible secondary (spare) weapon should be your most...

Sure, the upgrades give you some benefits in maximum range, but I don't think it's worth losing the ability to fire at close targets in dense bush, rocky terrain, city fighting or some surprise situations. And as said, a "stock" gun is probably more reliable than most upgraded ones. 80m/s gun is pro...

I believe that the commanders of each faction are doing all they can to keep the game rolling. That is, trying to complete missions. For this, they need troops, and they need to know where they are. If you go to your own little commando missions / "vacations" / whatever without asking a permission, ...

Armbands should be made of rigid elastic material and provided by the Berget Events, even if it means some 3-5 EUR (boo-hoo) higher ticket cost. The colours should be bright enough and easy to tell apart. Yellow, blue, light blue, red, purple, even light grey? Some nasty green might also work, but t...

Didn't notice any major cheating, execpt maybe from that certain Italian group. Unless you don't actually see & hear your BB's hitting your foe, don't get pissed. Many times I had thought "hm, didn't I hit that guy?" but it is very possible that the BB's just landed in front of him, hit some branche...
