2 Day MilSim organized and hosted by the Admin team of Darkfire Airsoft.

After discovering oil, a small nation state's government collapsed under military coup. Now a fierce dictatorship has arisen from the ashes and the people have become restless. A growing rebellion has formed under the nose of the government, being aided by a network of supportive citizens and foreign military aid. The rebel forces fight to free their homeland from military power, while the nations military does all they can to repel foreign invaders and quell the rebellion.
