The Fallout Rangers were the first tactical airsoft
team in Greece. Originally formed in early 2004, the team's
concept was based on post-apocalyptic survival (influenced
by the legendary computer RPG Fallout series as well as
related fiction) rather than a specific military/law enforcement
model. However, in 2005 after the insertion of new members
and recent growth of airsoft in Greece, the team evolved
into a tactical squad.
The Rangers are relatively old compared to average airsoft
standards. Most also practice martial arts (both Eastern
and Western) and most have had military training as army
service is mandatory in Greece. Still, they are fun-loving
and always welcome good company. Their approach in training
and gaming is indeed tactical as they consider Airsoft a
true martial sport but also enjoy post-nuclear scenario
twists like "Scavengers' hunt" or "Super
Mutants!" (check our articles section for these).
The team utilizes specific uniform colours for different
types of operations. Rangers wear tri-camo desert BDUs in
urban terrain, OD green coveralls in the woodlands and black
BDUs or coveralls for night-ops. The virus of accessorizing
is evidently a disease that all team members share in common.
Thus, kits include tac vests and body armour, all sorts
of pouches and buttpacks, optical sights and lazers as well
as excessive weapon customizations!
