EOD: Explosive Ordinance Disposal
An EOD operator is a Field Technician specified for field technical, mechanical and Bomb Disposal missions. His use is set according to the game’s scenario. If no such role is required for the given game he will carry on as a rifle man.
- Helmet REQUIRED. Helmets MUST be worn AT ALL TIMES when playing the ‘role’ of EOD.
- An EOD expert should wear some kind of ballistic protection at any time (soft armor or hard armor, your choice) that meets the general rules criteria
The technician’s gear consists of the basic rifleman’s kit plus the following items:

- Small pair of scissors
- Small wire cutter
- Duct tape
- Electrical tape
- A set of screws (preferably the optician ones)
- A small wrench

A set of fake explosives for blowing away the retrieved “goods”
- The field technician/EOD expert should be designated with the appropriate patch worn on his uniform and/or vest, pack, etc.
- In the event that an EOD team is KIA during the processing of explosives, that EOD will cease to ‘exist’ for the remainder of the game and will no longer be required to wear the EOD helmet. Ex-EOD team members, once KIA will be folded back into their teams as regular riflemen.
The support gunner’s kit is identical with any other rifleman’s with the exception that he is allowed to carry HighCap magazines to simulate the massive fire power provided by him.
