Airsoft Mask Product Features
The UTG Airsoft Full 180 Degree View Tactical Goggles is generally used during games of airsoft.
Airsoft is a shooting sport where game players use airsoft guns to fire 6mm plastic BBs. Airsoft groups can differ in size from a couple of players to many teams, fire teams, and operational forces based on the scale of the field and participant turnout.
Airsoft guns consist of the following rifles, handguns, and sniper rifles. The main airsoft weapons used include guns like the AK47 Kalashnikov, Heckler and Koch H&K G36, Colt M4 Carbine inspired assault rifles which are replicated in the form of automatic electric (AEG) airsoft guns. Sidearms usually consist of Beretta M9, 1911, and Glock handguns which are carried into the field as airsoft green gas, GBB, or CO2 airsoft handgun versions. Sniper rifles typically are modeled after the Remington 700 bolt action long guns which participants deploy as spring powered sniper rifles.
Airsoft game players generally dress in camouflage patterns for games in addition to headgear like tactical helmets and tactical vests configured with pouches. Each opposing airsoft team frequently wears a particular pattern to assist in identifying hostile and friendly forces. The most common patterns include army fight dress uniforms (BDUs) like woodland camouflage, desert camo, digital camo, and MultiCam. A colored band can be worn on the arm to designate opposing forces if teams can not be separated by uniform.
The targets airsoft guns are shot at can vary depending upon game type. Most often the targets engaged with airsoft guns are other participants during the course of force-on-force wars. This is why it is vital for all players on the field to wear protective gear like airsoft safety glasses and face masks and follow the safety guidelines of the field. Other sorts of targets can vary from fixed objects to paper targets as game players enter into marksmanship competitions and events by aiming to strike items at increasingly more difficult ranges. Target acquisition, speed, and accuracy are essential to keeping the shots on target.
There are also many types of airsoft objectives. The types of airsoft games are rather endless as players develop more kinds all the time.
What is Milsim
Military simulation airsoft, or milsim, is often a big component of airsoft. Milsim is the art of mimicking a military atmosphere. Many times this involves a command element, jeeps, and semi-realistic locations with dummy battleground firecrackers or special effects. Most of the airsoft uniforms, objectives, and weapons are replications of genuine weapons, military fatigues, and real-world objectives out of the history books. The end result of properly done milsim results in players looking extremely military-esque and kitted like soldiers.
Milsim airsoft weapons are based around the period featuring well-known weapons during the time of the historical mission. The M16A1 rifle has the traditional appearance of a Vietnam age assault rifle, while other airsoft rifles like the Heckler & Koch HK416 and IWI TAVOR TAR-21 are much more contemporary. In strict milsim gameplay, weapons must be consistent with the era, use related scopes and optics, and be properly modded.
Milsim outfits can vary based on the events and be based around the historical patterns and gear loadouts of the period. The military equipment used typically needs to be and match the uniform from the corresponding era. For instance, a present day U.S. Navy Seal milsim outfit and loadout may combine a Navy Working Uniform (NWU) camouflage pattern with a London Bridge Trading LBT-6094 Plate Carrier Gen II tactical vest and a ballistic helmet like the Ops-Core FAST SF Super High Cut Helmet. Replica tactical equipment and ballistic panels and helmets are generally used in place of the legitimate gear. This saves on money since the real gear can cost 1000s of dollars and be lighter to move around with on the field.
The missions undertaken throughout military simulation operations consist of historical reenactments and objectives set as historical fiction. Have you ever wanted to storm the beaches of Normandy, defend the 38th Parallel, or take on the drug lords of Mogadishu during Blackhawk Down? Milsim integrated with airsoft is one way you can actively join in and experience military history.
