2AiE is putting on what will be the most authentic to date, historically correct event... for being in the right place . . at the right time . . in the right uniform . . in the correct vehicles since end of ww2 .

It is designed as full immersion experience for determined re-enactors to take part in,
run by Reenactors for Reenactors... an American force of over 100 men dressed in the 2 piece HBT Camouflage suits riding in Jeeps, M8 Armored Cars and Half tracks towing 57mm and 37mm canons with support GMCs and a full Field Kitchen

We will be in close combat for a 6 day period against a force of approximately 80+ Germans comprising of Heer and Fallschirmjager troops supported by German tanks, Armored Cars and Opel Blitz towing Anti tank guns.

Private areas in the original Op COBRA combat zone have been sourced, reconnoitered and permissions granted from the Prefectures and Departments to allow full scale combat scenarios.

You will be fed and transported to and from the event in ww2 vehicles.
Weapon hire and pyro technicians will be adding the mix to produce what will go down in
ww2 reenactors folklore as the best event ever. (Until next time)

If you feel you can forgo the modern comforts for 6 days to experience the hard ships of a ww2 Dough-boy in the 41st Armored Infantry,17th Armored Engineers or 82nd Recon Battalion en send your name and email address to 2aiecobra2016@gmail.com to register an interest.
