The Brigada Tripeira in "Modelismo em Maceda" - Otan Air Force Base

The Brigada Tripeira wargaming Group, participated in another "Modelismo em Maceda", an annual modeling event that in recent years has been made in the NATO Air Base in Maceda (Aeródromo de Manobra Nº 1 - Ovar).

This year we carry out a Battlegroup demo game, with an "High Ground" scenario.

I present you a few pictures of the event.

Photo Report at Portuguese Air Force Site :


O Aeródromo de Manobra N.º1, em Ovar, recebeu cerca de três mil pessoas ao longo dos dois dias de Base Aberta, no fim de semana de 27 e 28 de setembro.

Os visitantes conheceram diferentes aeronaves, tiveram acesso a uma exposição de modelismo, assistiram a demonstrações operacionais e alguns conseguiram mesmo realizar batismos de voo no C-295M.

O público teve ainda oportunidade de esclarecer dúvidas junto dos militares, de visitar o Pólo do Museu do Ar e de passear pela Unidade na viatura blindada APC CONDOR.
