The Azeri Front
The Azeri Front
Russians launch from Russian port city of Makhachkala, land in Sumqayit, Azerbaijan (a coastal city north of the Azeri capital of Baku and approx.. 100 miles south of Derbent) in order to create a southern front that could leave NATO forces in Derbent, Shali, and Grozny caught in a pincer. RUSFOR quickly advances north along HWY E119 towards Derbent. In reaction, NATO forces push south from Derbent across the Azeri border, and the forces meet in the village of Amsar, Azerbaijan (50 mi. south of Derbent).
NATO needs to stop the RUSFOR advance at Amsar in order to secure their southern flank and prevent further advance towards Derbent, Shali, and eventually, Grozny.
RUSFOR needs to maintain the momentum of their advance. If they are able to push through the NATO lines from the south, the NATO positions in the Caucuses will need to split their efforts between northern and southern fronts.

Q. Does the event actually start Friday? Can I show up Saturday?
A. The event starts Friday, that means actual operations start Friday as well. Saturday check-in is highly discouraged and will be at our convenience. Plan on showing up Friday.

Q. Can I wait till the last moment to pay?
A. Yes, you can wait till the last minute to pay, but we wouldn't recommend it. Our previous event sold out before the close of registration leaving many who were planning on coming, but hadn't registered yet, out in the cold. On top of that, there is a significant discount offered to those who register early.

A. Registration closes 2-weeks prior to the event, on April 19th. We would not recommend you wait that long as we expect this event to sell out before then.
