2CAV deploying to Vietnam

Oct 19, 2016 - 4:49 PM - by Bonez





Date
: November 12th, 1965

From: Gen. William C. Westmoreland, Commander, U.S. Military Assistance Command, Vietnam (COMUSMACV)

To: AEF 2nd Cavalry
Effective from the date of these orders, the 2nd Cavalry division of the AEF is deploying to the Vietnam area of operations for a tour of duty.
This tasking will put into use the new military doctrine of Airborne Cavalry and is intended to assist in the securing of enemy territory from the North Vietnamese Army and Viet Cong guerilla forces within Vietnam. It is expected that the division will also be seconded to the Brown Water Navy for riverine operations as required.


The first operation of this tour will commence at 9am AEDST (8am AEST) and will be of 12 hours in duration. This mission will entail pushing into heavily defended enemy territory and holding that location for a minimum of 12 hours to enable additional forces to move up and secure the area. UH-1 Hueys and 105mm Howitzers will be available for supply and artillery support throughout the allotted mission time.


This operation will mark the beginning of the Vietnam tour of duty for 2nd Cavalry. As always, any other members of the AEF or the general public is welcome to join this operation on the 12th of November or for our regular Friday night missions.


The 12 hour mission opener will be an attempt to recreate the battle of Ia Drang on November the 14th 1965 by the 1st Cavalry Division led by Lieutenant Colonel Hal Moore. This battle was memorialised in the book We Were Soldiers Once, and Young as well as the movie We Were Soldiers.

Mission Requirements:


All soldiers will require the standard 2 CAV mission loadout available through Play With Six from the following location:





The additional mods required for the Vietnam missions are approximately 6 GB so it is recommended that these are downloaded and installed well before shipping out.

Battlefield 1

Aug 16, 2016 - 11:48 PM - by Bowie

The next installment of the Battlefield franchise is almost upon us, with the release of Battlefield 1.

EXPERIENCE A WHOLE NEW KIND OF WAR


In Battlefield 1, discover a world where mounted cavalries, tanks and biplanes collide, and war will never be the same. Check out new weapons, unique vehicles, a never-before-seen game mode. Set in the period of the Great War, WW1 where new technology and worldwide conflict changed the face of warfare forever. Take part in every battle, control every massive vehicle, and execute every maneuver that turns an entire fight around. The whole world is at war - see what lies beyond the trenches.

CHANGING ENVIRONMENTS IN LOCATIONS ALL OVER THE WORLD


Discover every part of a global conflict from shore to shore – fight in besieged French cities, great open spaces in the Italian Alps, or vast Arabian deserts. Fully destructible environments and ever-changing weather create landscapes that change moment to moment; whether you’re tearing apart fortifications with gunfire or blasting craters in the earth, no battle is ever the same.

GAME-CHANGING VEHICLES

Turn the tide of battle in your favor with vehicles both large and larger, from tanks and biplanes to gigantic Behemoths, unique and massive vehicles that will be critical in times of crisis. Rain fire from the sky in a gargantuan Airship, tear through the world in the Armored Train, or bombard the land from the sea in the Dreadnought.


The game is due to be released on 21st October 2016, or 18th October if you buy the deluxe edition.

AEF Donations

Jul 12, 2016 - 9:18 PM - by Skid

The AEF needs your help again!


It’s that time again were I pass the hat around to all our members for donations to keep this establishment running. As you can all understand, the services we provide to our members and the public, come at a cost. There are a number of generous people who have setup regular contributions and we thank them for their support. Also others who have made ‘one off’ contributions. But unfortunately the ‘coal in the bunker’ is running low and the lights are dimming.

So we are asking once again for donations, no matter what amount, to keep the lights on, a fire in the hearth and a place we can all call home, our gaming home.

Be assured of the most important part in this process:

Every dollar donated to the AEF will be spent on the AEF.


All donations go into a separate paypal account that is strictly used to cover required running costs.


Those who Donate will be acknowledged on our website but the amount donated will not be posted. After donating, leave a comment in the paypal that has your AEF name. Everyone who donates will have a "Donator" Badge below their name in the forums and on their profile.

Again, we appreciate every dollar that you guys are able to help with. No donation is too small. So thank you, we appreciate your continued support.

If you have any ideas for new features or changes to the website, please voice them in our Suggestions/Requests forum.
