Border War 6 – The Sunseeker held in the Czech Republic in former military area Ralsko took place during last weekend of April and hosted players from 28 countries. Participants have tackled a 50 hour intensive day and night infantry MILSIM battle in a very demanding weather.
Border War 6 has pushed forward the limits of Border War 5 and reassured its position as the largest Airsoft and MILSIM 40+hours game operation in the Czech Republic, Europe and around the word, proving to be a benchmark in many aspects of Airsoft MILSIM event organising.
BW 6 hosted many historical vehicles and several helicopters for the ingame insertion for more than 230 airmobile players directly in the heat of the battle, as well fortified bunkers, antitank obstacles/ barriers, and many game locations built specially for the purpose of the event.
A LARP city featured more than 30 buildings and a nearby fortified castle that were inhabited by more than 350 LARP characters enjoying their role-play, integrated closely to the game scenario.
Cooperation with Authorities
Main partners of this year’s event were for the second time the Czech Army and the Ministry of Defence of the Czech Republic. The Czech Army has offered participants some very interesting seminars and opportunity to discuss an actual experience from deployment /active duty with the professionals. 43. Airborne brigade Chrudim has allowed participants to check latest real steel weapons of the Czech Armed Forces right on the spot, heavily armed Landrover Kayman was also on a display. Participants were involved – asking many questions and also checking out the weapons, taking pictures and trying out the vehicle. Chemical Engineers have shared their experiences from chemical warfare deployment/ active duty allowing participants to understand dangers of biochemical warfare. The Ministry of Defence shared a very nice exhibition about the Czech Army featuring plenty of photographs, posters and magazines, that participants took as the souvenirs.
The main sponsor of the event was ASG (Action Sport Games), BBs and replicas were distributed to the participants to test replicas before the game and during the game as well. Event was also supported/sponsored by Gunfire, Bohemia Airsoft, Jackets to Go, Voodoo Tactical Europe, UF PRO, Military Gear Center, Adventure Food, Airsoft & Military News Blog and Airsoft Academy (FAST).

Behind the Scenes
Entire BW6 preparation including the several pre-scenarios supporting the pregame development took 11 months. On the spot BW Crew included 160 people.
Because We Care
Border War MILSIM was traditionally supported by professional medical services provided by the company Medevac (www.medewac.cz) 3 Ambulance cars, more than 30 paramedics in jeeps and quad bikes, surgeon and internist doctors were on stand-by for the entire duration of the game, setting the medical readiness/status of the event to the Role 2 medical standard, ready to help any of the players in need within 5 minutes after the phone or radio notification, in any area of the entire large battlefield.
Role 2 medical preparation set up is a higher level of medical services on spot. For example – music festival with 20 000 people requires a standard Role 1 medical set up – Role 3 is an army field hospital, Role 4 is a regular city hospital. Event was obviously also backed up by local firefighters and police department. Safety of the players is an organizers’ priority.
