England vs. Scotland at Stirling Airsoft

Stirling Airsoft recently hosted their first annual Old Enemy Game, Operation “Silent Eye“, a battle between England and Scotland for the Stirling Shield.
Played in deep snow at Catterick FIBUA Village in North Yorkshire, the game saw teams representing England and Scotland fighting for control of strategic buildings and caches of weapons and money to score the most points and lead their team to victory. More than just a straightforward team against team game, this was a battle for national pride and the chance to become the first holders of the Stirling Shield.
Both sides fought valiantly, with the tide of victory ebbing back and forth between the two teams. But ultimately there could be only one winner, and after taking a significant points lead on Saturday night – by securing both Stinger missle launchers and the money and gold caches (and despite a surge from the Scots during Sunday’s play) – the final scores at EndEx on Sunday were England 1618 – Scotland 924.
You can find more detailed write ups of the game’s events on the Stirling Forum, with debriefs from both Zulu Daddy, the commander of the English Forces and from Landwarrior Airsoft’s Scott, who lead the Scottish Team. You can also find a full set of photo’s from the game on Flickr and a trailer for the DVD of the game on YouTube.
Plans are already in place for next year’s Old Enemy re-match, with Catterick once again providing the location for Operation “Instant Justice” on December 5th and 6th 2009.
