The GI list is pretty easy - standard combat infantryman's load plus extra canteen is what we usually require. Helmet mandatory for GI. AR-15, M1 carbine, M2 .50cal, and M60 as approved weapons.On the OPFOR side, we (Florida) usually go black/black or black/khaki or khaki/khaki depending on VC/VC Ranger/NVA, with black jungle boonie for ID purposes (pith helmets suck in brush), canteen w/strap, and weapons are pretty much anything WW2 plus AK-47. We sometimes add camo parachute material for extra effect, and at least one guy will have a PAVN rucksack for holding our boobie traps and propaganda cards. Footwear on the OPFOR side is a slight safety issue. We (Florida) strongly discourage Ho Chi Minh sandles in favor of PAVN boots or Converse sneakers or WW2 GI roughouts/service boots since they're fairly plain (civvy boots work, too, so long as they aren't modern nylon or trail runner shoes).The OPFOR side of the battle is a blast! Constantly in action, chance to be creative with the traps, and just all around good fun. Hopefully you guys can have some fun with it, too.
