Following years of civil unrest and failed coup attempts the country of Harlingrad became severely destabilised.
Fighting between government and militant forces escalated into a civil war between loyalist forces and rebel factions and in late 2019 a state of emergency was declared by the UN.
All travel into and out of the country has been restricted with many western personnel evacuated.
The situation gained international attention when several US and British civilians mainly press and translators were captured, tortured and eventually executed, a rebel faction known as The Red Dawn claimed responsibility.
While very little is known about The Red Dawn information coming to light reveals they are mainly comprised of former members of the Harlingrad military, led by the disavowed members of Harlingrad Special Operations Group (H-SOG) and seem to be well funded.
While it has not yet been confirmed who is funding The Red Dawn information points to several Eastern agencies.
Battle for Eastmeresh
The town of Eastmeresh resides in the open plains of Harlingrads interior. UN forces led by a British task force (Task Force Blue Shield) have been stationed in the towns police station to the west of the town alongside a Harlingrad Police unit. Their mission is to provide security and a rendezvous point for western civilians to be extracted for eventual transport out of the country.
Sporadic engagements with a rebel cell within the town have become common place during regular patrols, but so far, the rebel cell has evaded capture and not been neutralised.
The situation has become more perilous as a sizable rebel force has been spotted moving through the valley to the east of the town. Security of the civilians must be maintained, and all western civilians making their way to the town must be located and extracted.

What is a Combat Tactical OP
Combat Tactical OP events are not 24 hour firefights. They require you to follow orders from a chain of command to complete the overall objective, such as conducting patrols, recon and intel gathering, setting up observation points, guarding positions and other duties.
When you book your place you will be assigned to a squad so if you are booking separately to team mates please make sure you enter your team name when prompted so we can assign you the correct callsign. You will also be required to define your role such as Rifleman, Support Gunner or Sniper as some roles are limited to aid realism and gameplay.
Please make sure your read and understand the rules (located at the bottom of this page) prior to booking.
Tickets for this event are £95 per person with a £45 deposit required when booking to secure your place with the remainder payable upon arrival.
Eastmere OBUA Village started life as a European style village designed to train troops in FIBUA tactics.
Eastmere was upgraded following fighting in Iraq with middle eastern style compounds and buildings added and is now used to train troops for Operations in Built Up Areas or OBUA for short.
Featuring alleys, multiple storey buildings with balconies and wide streets it makes for a brilliant venue.
