UPIR Heavy Weapons & Demolition Unit - Q&A and info

Postby FURBY » Wed 02 Nov, 2016 23:06

"It's time to blow shit up!" :wink:

Hello everyone!
I hope you guys are excited as i am for this Berget 15, because it seems as it might be something different that what we have seen. :D

This year, me and a friend have decided to go on the Upir Demo group, but we where wondering about the tools need. So if you are looking forward to join in this group and you have other Q about it, post it! i might have skiped it.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"Unit requirements: Helmet is required and a small toolkit as an add on to the uniform. The toolkit must contain a small shovel, a saw, rope and a wirecutter. Will be required to manufacture some props pre-game like mines and TNT charges. BE will send specs and blueprints. "

Q: How big or small the shovel will have to be? Because we have sizes from a gardener's hand foldable shovel that can fit in one hand up to regular big size shovels. I believe that what the crew might had in mind was something like a regular army shovel style? (if you can facilitate pics on what you reffer, perfect :D )
Saw, If it's just a wire saw or has to be a propper medium to big size saw. or even if its a foldable one?
Rope, will just using paracord will work or it has to be a stronger and bigger diameter of the rope? How many meters minimum/max?
Wirecutter, again, regular hardware store style (bomb defusing style) or one that is as big as your finger?

Because, if there is no more specific explanation with this, you could go with a multitool that has everything but the shovel. Or even better! With a chinesee shovel! You can do everything with it....... but i feel it might make loose the "LARP" thing for the props.

Here are a few suggestions from my side where they keep the stetics of a engenieer loadout yet are lightweith.

Shovel =
Regular army standar try fold shovel, keep it simple yet in the role. You can find them everywhere and arent expensive

Saw:
Gerber Freescape Camp Saw, foldable, lightweith yet able to have a decent size when deployed. (user decision to go with this specific version)

Rope:
(9mm) Medium size rope style, not too fat, not too thing, it gives just the right look for a decent and sturdy rope (also functional! :D ) That you can just attach on the side of a mini map backpack.
((( You can find them on ebay cheap for 10$ aprox, example
https://www.amazon.com/Inch-Foot-Rope-B ... words=rope)))

Wirecutter:
Hardware store wirecutter, nothing fancy but it works.

For the props..... i'm waiting to see the blueprints, but i guess it might be something cool! :D

Overall, i think its going to be fun to go around the combatzone while doind something else, repairing or setting up charges :D So sad we can not use pyros..... :/ ..... but how about using thunder Bs co2 grenades for the charges? :D that could be something, sound is a big thing, specially if you wanna blowout something instead of (oh, ok, it's destroyed now.)

Good points here.


The tools required is not for appearance, you will use them for actual field work & missions. Setting upp "road obstacles" placing mines & IED´s and building defenses. Therefore bring "practical tools" that you can work with.

There will be some "special missions",and this unit will get access to both pyro and smoke. (Not ok to bring your own, will be provided by Berget)

Regarding props. There will for example be blueprints for "boobietrapped" beeping vehicle-mines that "kills" the engineer trying to remove them if he/she is not careful.

It's to my understanding that everything besides your "outer-layer" (uniform) Is your choice, so if you want to meet up in your soviet tanker helmet and your pink crocs that is YOUR choice. :D

The helmet need to be a military Kevlar-style helmet, you will work with explosives etc.

I got a follow up question regarding the tools:

How is this tool-kid-rule to be understood?
We plan to come with a vehicle to support our HWD Squad, would it still be ok, to bring a "real" normal sized shovel, Axe, Saw etc. and keep it on the car, or is the look of a HWD Soldier with a tool kid required?

Hello Corni,

1. Only Heavy Vechicles are allowed in UPIR teams, you need to *MAKE SURE* That you get any vehicle approved by berget-events before you make such plans. Email info@berget-events.com with information about what kind of vehicle you want to bring and to what team, but you need to have a good reason to bring vehicle to UPIR to get it approved.

2. The reason for the tool-kit-rule is twofold. Primarily, the ability you have to destroy and rebuild fortifications is powerful, so unlike medics who only need no-weight bandages, we want to make the powerfulness come with a cost of actually carrying required tools around. ( You will NEED to have tools in your hands to repair/Rebuild/Destroy )
Also, secondarily, you need to be Visially identifyable as more than a normal Engineer to the enemy so they can take you out ( hehe ).

So in short, bring a large shovel if you want to carry it around, i do NOT recommend it, but you need to look like a "HWD" Soldier indeed.

So to be clear here, when we block a road or build anything there won't actual work be involved, just a HWD-Unit standing arround and looking cool with their tools until GM says "ok the Road is now blocked"?


About the vehicle thing: As I understood the unit description, HWD is the only UPIR unit that can bring class 3 vehicles to the game. (I don't know how shadows and PsyOps is handled regarding this either)
UPIR Inf description clearly says "This unit is not allowed to bring vehicles"
and the Iron Skulls of course have the class 5 rule

But that was more or less my interpretation. I figure you probably have more insight here than me.

Yes. As per usual, players should not dig or destroy the enviroment in any way shape or form unless allowed by GM/Staff.
It would be more like your commander will want to blow up XX. He will need 4 normal engineers for 1 hour on the location to destroy it, OR , 2 HWD Engineers for 30 minutes ( JUST EXAMPLES, These numbers are in no way shape or form accurate ). But there will be things you actually need to do, like defuse IEDs and mines... The tools for this will be brought by BE.

Entire UPIR are mostly limited to class 5's , few numbers but extremely powerful ( And that is why UPIR have you guys, NAF Doesnt have anything equal. ).
Exceptions are made, and that is why i am telling you to get it approved thru email before you go crazy with the planning :)

Thanks Arradin for clarifying

The following statement brought me to think, that we actually had to work with the tools.

Yes, that is correct, which is why i said " with GM Permission " , because there will be mission requiring tools. Just dont want people to go around ruining the enviroment for no reason :)
