U.K. – Armored Vehicle Crew – Required Equipment for Individual Attendees

The U.K unit attending East Wind is an element of C Squadron, 11th Hussars (Prince Albert's Own), a light armored cavalry unit deployed to support the British Berlin Infantry Brigade.

In between bouts of fixing things, getting stuck and bashing your (always helmeted) head on the hatch you will conduct combat support, reconnaissance, and raiding operations against and enemy that has developed a well deserved burning hatred for the whizzy sound of your Ferret slinking up the trail.

To attend as a armored vehicle crewman you obviously must be coming either with an armored fighting vehicle or as a crew to an armored vehicle that is attending. If you are not 100% sure that you are an armored vehicle crewman, it's probably because you are not. See the armored infantryman instead.

Each individual attending as a U.K. Armored Vehicle Crewman is required to have all of the equipment listed on this page before they will be allowed entry to the field. Click on the name of each item for more details, and photos. There will be an inspection when you sign in. If you have questions, or are having trouble sourcing some items, please contact us.

Note: This list only applies if you are attending as a crewman of an armored vehicle. If you are not sure, you are almost certainly not a vehicle crewman and should see the U.K. Armored Infantry page for your U.K. equipment requirements.

While some of the equipment on the list may not seem to have immediate value, it is not just for the sake of realism or re-enacting. All the equipment is designed to work as a system, with other people's gear, and with the heavy equipment we provide. For example, it seems like any cup, bowl or plate would work for eating off. But using the correct mess kit means the serving line runs faster, and your kit fits into the cleaning equipment we provide.

Before being sure you have all of this stuff, be sure to read the list of items that you cannot bring.
