“12th Kp Events” is excited to present the 3nd Annual Normandy Tactical Battle using mission orders and chain of command to give participants an experience unlike most all events in this genre. The event will focus on events after the actual invasion but prior to entering Belgium in 1944.
The Staff has continued to plan for mission events that you will execute during the Operational timeline. We are looking at a new area of the base to utilize this year. The event will begin @ 12 noon on Friday 11 October 2024 for the German’s and then the American and Commonwealth troops will begin their movement a couple of hours later. Like last year, there will be night operations on Friday until 22:00. Night Operations on Saturday depends upon participant numbers. There will be a large Clamshell facility & Tent areas for those not wanting to stay in a field environment.
For those individuals that are wanting to put together a specific unit impression for the event, you need to contact the event staff for approval prior to 1 June 2024, minimum of 5 personnel is required for this option. Rear area impressions are also welcome to attend and support the event. We also want all vehicle owners to know that compensation for Armored vehicles over 4 tons is provided once the Army and event cost are satisfied and surplus is met.
We invite all units to attend. If you belong to a unit that was not part of the Normandy Campaign, please contact us for recommendations on how you and your unit can participate. This large National Event will be one you don’t want to miss.
