Main missions kick off at 10am Saturday - 12pm Sunday

Minors 12+ allowed with waiver form signed by both parents.


Required/Recommended Equipment: Like previous events LIBC encourages a high standard for uniforms and weapons.

Period correct uniforms are required. We will be going by the 10ft rule, if your uniform looks correct from 10ft away then it will pass muster. This means no modern uniforms to include Woodland Pattern.

Weapons must also be of period correctness. “Modern Style” rifles Specifically AR varrients are ok as long as they are black, any Rails are covered and no optics, lasers, PEQs ect. (Remember 10 ft rule). This will be a Mid cap game, If you have no midcaps then High Caps filled to a max of 190rds will be allowed. Support Weapons (weapons that are actually support weapons in real life, RPK, Stoner, ECT) can run High Caps.

Each person will be responsible for their own food and initial water. We are trying to set up the logistics to have water on site.

Vc/NVA be prepared to be staying in the field the entire weekend Rain or Shine. You will be able to set up base camp with shelter but there will be no going back and forward to your vehicles. US forcers we will have a tent in the Patrol base but be ready to stay one night in the bush. All gear please try and stay time period or at least military, no civi or molle back packs.

This Game is unlike any most have attended, With the LIBC series is about total emersion, the second you step foot onto the field you are in 1969 Vietnam. Wounded Rules Follow the Military Style wound card with the use of medics. Team work is extremely important and the game runs to encourage unit cohesion (lone wolfs are not tolerated)

we will have pea grenades smoke and bb's available on sight.
More information is to follow.

BACKGROUND:
Operation Arc Light was the 1965 deployment of B-52F Stratofortresses as conventional bombers from bases in the US to Guam to support ground combat operations in Vietnam. By the middle of April 1966, all B-52Fs redeployed back to their bases in the US and were replaced by the Big Belly modified B-52D. Later in the war, the B-52G joined the B-52D.[1] By extension, Arc Light, and sometimes Arclight, is the code name and general term for the use of B-52D/F/G Stratofortress as a close air support (CAS) platform to support ground tactical operations assisted by ground-control-radar detachments of the 1st Combat Evaluation Group (1CEVG) in Operation Combat SkySpot during the Vietnam War. At the same time, investigations of secret CIA activities in Laos revealed that B-52s were used to systematically bomb Laos and Cambodia. In fact, the United States dropped more bombs on North Vietnamese Army-occupied eastern Laos than it did during World War II on Germany and Japan combined. To this day, large areas of Laos and Cambodia are still dangerous because of unexploded ordnance.

In 1964, the U.S. Air Force began to train strategic bomber crews in the delivery of conventional munitions, flying the B-52F. Under Project Big Belly, all B-52Ds were modified so that they could carry nearly 30 tons of conventional bombs. B-52s were deployed to Andersen air force base on the island of Guam, and U-Tapao Royal Thai Navy Airfield in Thailand. Arc Light operations were most often CAS bombing raids of enemy base camps, troops concentrations, and supply lines.

The first use of these heavy bombers in Southeast Asia occurred on 18 June 1965. Flying out of Andersen Air Force Base, Guam, twenty-seven aircraft used 750 and 1,000 pound bombs to attack a Viet Cong stronghold.[1] During this mission two B-52Fs were lost in a mid-air collision; another was unable to conduct air refueling. Missions were commonly flown in three-plane formations known as "cells" and were also employed when ground units in heavy combat requested fire support. Releasing their bombs from high in the stratosphere, the B-52s could neither be seen nor heard from the ground. B-52s were instrumental in nearly wiping out enemy concentrations besieging Khe Sanh in 1968
