I'm proud to be one of the creators of the baddest and meanest Mechanized forces on Berget "Thor Company". B13 will be the staging area of the largest mechanized force so far.

We have selected Mikhail "Mishka_U" Ustinov as commander for the GCT 1st Infantry unit. Mishka is 39 years old and are from Russia. Mishka speaks fluent English and have very good organizing skills since his past Berget experiences: 6 games (B7-B12). We are confident Mishka will make this GCT unit well organized and combat efficient!

Mishka: - A few words about myself: I received an officer's rank in the Russian military over 17 years ago and had no actual military experience since. Now I work as vice president at a local TV-company. To all players in the GCT 1st Infantry, get ready for action: we are supposed to be aggressive this year, so we will try and do whatever it takes to dominate the battlefield through soldiers' hard work and officers' proper planning. I expect you to be hungry for good battles. I look forward to seeing you all in June (and to hearing from your officers much earlier than that).

You can contact "Mishka_U" at our forum. to apply to officer positions.

GCT Ranger commander selected
We have selected 53 year old Alessandro "GLADIO" Marazzani from Italy as commander for the ranger unit. GLADIO has been platoon commander in the rangerunit last two Bergets. He has been handpicked due to recommandations and his leadership skills, the commander of the ranger unit must be able to handle the same physical challanges as his unit but still be making good tactial decisions and orders in the field.


-GLADIO: I served my country several years with the Italian Army's Paratroops Brigade. I'm with the Selected Reserve now. I switched from being transported in a plane and jump at half way to sit in the flight deck and fly the plane. I'm now a Senior Captain with a major airline flying wide bodies aircrafts. I'm still training a lot and participate at events and exercises with the Former Officers Association. I also practice defensive shooting,operational shooting(3 gun),long range shooting providing instructional sessions. I started playing airsoft only 4 years ago with my son and partecipated to two Bergets,11 and 12 both time as a Ranger Platoon Commander. Last year I had the pleasure to work side by side with Ian "Wormbyte" and all the other fantastic guys with the Ranger force. We all did a pretty good job, modestly, and I'd like to do the same this year.

I firstly have to thank the Berget Crew and "wormbyte" for trusting me and giving me the chance to lead the Unit this year. Secondly, I want everyone of you to know that the Game will be actually starting as soon as the Op Orders, maps,etc.,will be available. I'll need your cooperation because the better the planning the more chances of success and fun for the unit. Pretty soon I'll have to select a 2nd in Command and a couple of other Officers to be appointed Ops Off. and Intel Off. So please give me a hand and really put yourself in the game since now.

Do not hesitate to contact me with ideas and suggestions. In the field I'll never tell you to do what I wouldn't and couldn't do. I took this opportunity because I want to stay with my people in the line of fire and always be as an example for them. This is the way I was trained to do. I want you to really enjoy this adventure and have fun but It's not going to be easy at all. We will be requested to operate maybe with inclement weather,marching for many hours, to support the strategy and to accomplish the missions. It's going to be though but it's also going to be very rewarding. Though mission for though guys!


Rangers, step forward and contact "GLADIO" at our forum.

Commanders, TEAM-forums & Berget Shop
After a busy winter quarter we would like to communicate some of the new progress being made for this year’s event. As of today our web shop is now open for business. There will be a limited assortment of airsoft equipment for sale, but rest assured that we are working hard on expanding or supply of different products for the berget shop on site.

Another big news is the release of our newest project, B.A.P.S. hand grenades. There will be a limited amount of grenades in our web shop stock, so if this is something you would like, then we urge you to place your order quickly.

Regarding the new commanders, we will begin the announcement of the first one tomorrow! There have been a great many really good applications for commander posts this year and we are getting close to a decision for all sides. We are also getting close to opening the team forums. This will begin parallel to the announcement of this year’s commanders.

Game rules updated
We have updated the game rules for 2015 and the upcoming B13. There are some minor and major changes. You can see a short summary here and more details in the rules part. We recommend all players to take time to read and discuss the new rules before coming to Berget.

Vehicles
We want to reward players who make an effort to bring vehicles with a serious and more realistic look. More hitpoints for armoured fighting vehicles. No more pickup trucks with tarps as protection.

Support weapons
All PKM versions now counts as support weapons. Car mounted support guns are not affected by weapon-hits. You must take out the vehicle with BAVS or hit the gunner.

Semi snipers
As expected, PSG and Druganov will be nerfed to class 3 max 140 m/s. Class 6 is now for 50 cal snipers only. Barrett, OSV-96, AR-50, CheyTac 50 BMG etc. (Late 2015 berget will introduce a 50 cal B.A.V.S kit.)

Base respawn
You can no longer use the respawn in your base if the base is under attack (Enemy forces inside base). You need to use secondary respawn marked on map further away from base.

Locked / Barricaded doors
Some buildings will be locked and can only be opened by engineers. It takes 2 minutes per door. This is indicated with a yellow “X” on the door. (Spray paint) Engineers need Crowbar or TNT to open a door. (props)

Grenades
We have updated rules for grenades and added the sonic grenade as an option to clear rooms, cars or tents. Still no burning, smoking, exploding grenades are allowed.

Supplypoints
Supply points and tactical points have been removed. Districts and Capture Points have been added.

World premiere!
We are happy to announce the world premiere of the Berget hand grenade!

We have during this januari tested different options for allowing grenades to the upcoming Berget 13. But our tests show that there is no safe options for us to use in a massive scale as Berget. We tested grenades from different manufacturers but the grenades where too loud or did burn with a open flame (fire hazzard if used uncontrolled in a massive scale).

Our conclusion where that other BB shooting options, CO2, GAS, Spring grenades etc works to bad. They will end up in argues over non-hit-takers in house to house CQB. So we decided to create our own solution for airsoft.

Berget sonic hand-grenade (B.A.P.S = Berget anti personal system) is a grenade made for use in houses, tents, cars, rooms and bunkers. It is safe, has no buring parts, is reusable and has a maximum sound of 90 db. It is a safe option airsoft grenade.

It uses two standard AA batteries and you operate it by pulling the sprint upwards until it stops. Then the red LED lights up and that means you have 4 seconds before detonation. You throw the grenade into a room and when it "detonates" it wil be a long sound for 10 seconds, the grenade will then put itself into sleepmode. You reset the grenade by pressing the sprint back into orginal possition. You will know this by the red led-light turning off.

The rules are simple for the grenade, if you are in a room when a sonic grenade "detonates" you are hit (We will put up a video with operation and sound later). No matter if you are behind a cover or furniture, you are hit. If a player enters a room during the 10 second "detonation"-sound he is hit.

The grenade effect does not work outdoors, the rules only apply for indoor use in bunkers, cars, tents or rooms. It is important to know that the grenade does not elimnate a whole house, only the room where the grenade is thrown. The grenade will go on sale for 20 EURO when our webshop opens at the end of this month. It will later this year be available at selected retailers around the world.

NOTE!
We will only be able to produce a limited amount of grenades for Berget 13 so please keep in mind that the grenades can run out of stock pretty fast.
