Que es el MILSIM???

Post by ''Correcaminos'' on 2008-08-12, 02:28

MILSIM

MilSim is an abbreviation of Military Simulation.

There are many applications of MilSim: airsoft games, paintball games, military training, and video games simulating military scenarios and tactics.

Weapons used in MilSim are commonly airsoft guns. They are made to resemble real guns from many time periods.

Popular reenactments include World War II battles using weapons like the Thompson submachine gun and smoke grenades. Military simulation battles are popular but there are other types, such as a standard battle using a preset number of hits before players are "dead." When playing a military simulation, game people are encouraged to wear clothing that resembles the time era, although this is usually not mandatory. Although MilSim often relates to airsoft it is not limited to airsoft alone; it also includes paintball.

* 1 Paintball
* 2 Airsoft

1. Paintball

Paintball is a sport in which participants eliminate opponents from play by hitting them with paintballs, spherical gelatin capsules containing primarily polyethylene glycol, other non-toxic and water-soluble substances, and dye, shot from a compressed-gas-powered gun, commonly called a marker.

Paintball draws a wide array of players, and the Sporting Goods Manufacturer's Association estimates that over 30 million people play annually in the United States alone. Insurance statistics show that paintball is one of the safest sports in existence, even more so than tennis (see paintball references).

Games can be played either indoors or outdoors and take various forms, of which some of the most popular are woodsball, scenario and speedball, also sometimes known as tourneyball under various circumstances. Rules for playing paintball vary widely, with most designed to ensure that participants enjoy the sport in a safe environment. The sport requires a significant amount of equipment and has even developed its own slang.

A game of paintball usually involves two opposing teams seeking to eliminate all of the other team's players or to complete an objective, such as retrieving a flag, eliminating a specific player, or other paintball variations. An average, non-professional game of paintball usually lasts around five minutes to half an hour. Since its inception, paintball has drawn a crowd of both casual and serious players.

2. Airsoft

Airsoft is a sport or recreational pastime in which players participate in the simulation of military combat also called MilSim or law enforcement-style combat using smoothbore airsoft guns (or "twist" barrels) designed as replicas of real firearms.

Airsoft has its roots in late-1980s East Asia, specifically Japan where firearms were difficult or impossible to obtain due to local laws; sought a legal alternative for enjoying their passion. Airsoft is still today most popular in several Asian regions, such as Japan, China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macau, South Korea, and to a certain extent, the Philippines, and Indonesia. The vast majority of airsoft guns, accessories, and after market upgrade parts are also manufactured in these countries.

There is also a growing interest in North America and Europe, especially in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France, Spain, Poland, Lithuania, Portugal, Sweden, Finland, Norway, Italy, Belgium (which is also visited by Dutch players, as the game is illegal in the Netherlands), Denmark, Chile, and Argentina, bolstered by an active and expanding Internet scene.
