CQB City Airsoft May 15, 2010 (TopTech MP5 HFC Glock 17 GBB G&G GR16 Systema PTW

The one thing about being the cameraman is that you get shot by both sides on the field. Imagine how many times I get hit on a regular basis but now add in the lack of light. Now you can get how many times I get hit during night operations. Everyone got lost in the dark it was hard to make out where shots were ringing out from. Some insurgent forces took refuge in the 2nd story building and held it down most of the scenario. Most of the fighting remained on the perimeter streets of the city while very few ventured out into the close quarters of the killhouse. Some of the most notable weapons of the night was a TopTech MP5 pneumatic blow back and a System PTW MAX.
For added stealth some operators ran lightweight gear opting for only a sidearm and no lights. Camo forces flanked insurgent positions using the castle and west side favela as cover. Being one of the only very few light sources on the field I naturally became the biggest target. I decided to debut my IBH helmet setup and it worked flawlessly, the only thing missing a an NVG.

Then night before the op I was putting in the batteries into my Peltor Tactical 6s and on the right headset I ripped out the speaker. Needless to say I was not only bummed but utterly pissed off that I was not going to be able to use them. So for the first time in a long time I ran without any ear protection =/ 

Headgear: IBH w/nvg mount X Arena Flakjaks X Balaclava

In all thank to everyone that made it out for a fun evening at CQB City. Solid day of shooting and look forward to the next operation.
