Operation East Wind is set in the Berlin District of a still divided Germany sometime between 1985 and 1995. As a NATO soldier coming into this environment you would find yourself as part of an elite brigade surrounded on every side by the full might of the Warsaw Pact. If the Cold War went hot, your job is to hold out as long as you can and make the enemy pay for every brick, stick and curb in blood. It was common knowledge that there was to be no such thing as a victory for the Berlin garrison. There would be only blood and pain.

We appreciate your interest in attending on behalf of the NATO forces, and defending democracy for the free peoples of Germany. Before committing to attend, be sure to complete these tasks:

  • Schedule – Make sure you can attend. East Wind takes place over nine days in mid to late March. It is designed to align with the most common Spring Break times, but not everyone's is the same, and those who work cannot always get time off. Make your requests now.
  • Transport – Make sure you can get to the event. The location is D-Day Adventure Park in Wyandotte, Oklahoma. We get attendees from far and wide, so check on the forums, or start your own thread, and arrange carpooling or convoying.
  • Rules – Read the entire list of rules & regulations for East Wind. While you may think you know everything about airsoft, you will be required to abide by the spirit and the letter of each and every rule, both to preserve the milsim experience for everyone else, and for the safety of all players. Do not assume this is legal fine print, and ignore it. Read every word of the rules and decide if you can live up to them.
  • Role – Select the nationality and unit you will join. These are listed on this page, so scroll down to review them all. Review the equipment requirements, and begin purchasing the equipment you need for your selected unit.

Attending East Wind

Attending as a full experience participant means that you are committing to joining the event and staying in the combat environment 24/7 for the duration of your attendance whether that be the full 9 days or a shorter time commitment.
