This just in from the 197th Guards. It looks like a good one for the guys in the Southern region. Check out the list ofÂ vehicles at the bottom:
Operation Winters Storm
April 17, 18 & 19, 2009
Registration: $20 This includes a Saturday night meal.
“Last year’s attendance for the Eastern Front event was over 100 reeanctors with an even number of Russians and Germans.
Calling all defenders of the Russian homeland!!! The time to act is now. We are currently destroying the German soldiers in Stalingrad and the Russian army is in the process of completing our encirclement. Once completed the German army will be crushed and the war will be over.
This is a GREAT location. It is the same location as Operation Cobra. That was a great event and we are excited to be having an Eastern Front at the same location.
This a 300-acre site with wooded areas, open fields, groves, roads and several abandoned buildings. This will be an authentic WWII tactical event with the battles being fought in an area that provides the opportunity for extensive vehicle maneuvering as well as good defensive positions.
We have several vehicles already confirmed:
* A Russian T34 Tank
* A German 251
* A Lend Lease A M5 HST
* A Lend Lease M3 Scout Car
* Several German Kubels
* Possibly a German Sd.Kfz.222 armoured car
* Possibly some lend lease American jeeps
* Several German Motorcycles
* We are working on several fly-overs from a WWII Russian Yak
It is the same location as Operation Cobra. That was a great event and we are excited to be having an Eastern Front at the same location.
It is a great location for vehicles. All Russian, German and Partisan troops are welcome. This will be a great time so please attend.”
