The Defense Target II from RE Factor Tactical

Thursday, August 15th, 2019

The Defense Target II is designed to give you an enhanced training experience by offering one target that can be customized with multiple stickers. The Defense Target II features an individual that can transform from an FBI agent to an office active shooter to a business no-shoot with the simple change of our customized stickers. This allows the target to be used in multiple different scenarios. Available sticker areas include:
Left Hand
Right Hand

The Defense Target II Explained

Each sticker is designed to perfectly match up with the target’s hands, chest area or hip to create a new target scenario that appears natural to the shooter. This allows instructors to take one target and change scenarios rapidly. By changing the target constantly, students are forced to look at different places on the body to make the right decision of whether or not the target is a threat.



The Defense Target II matches up with the varied stickers (sold separately). These stickers overlay on the right hand, left hand, chest and hip seamlessly. These durable 3 Mil stickers allow for hundreds of target variations. Stickers are designed to be used while wearing gloves.

Target Scoring

The Defense Target’s scoring areas are designed to be as close to the average human’s anatomy as possible. The “5” head box measures the average width and height of a human head while the “5” heart box is purposefully offset slightly right (target’s left) and sized to the average human heart. Both “5” areas are designed to mimic a kill zone. The “4” zones match the average lung size and pelvic girdle area and are designed to mimic a shot in which death is probable but not guaranteed. The “3” represents the outline of the average human body and represents an area where death is possible but not likely.

Medical Assault Combat Belt System awarded NSNs

Wednesday, August 14th, 2019

Medical Belt with Choices of Belt Pads, Pouches and Harness – designed to replace the 18D’s Medical Assault Chest Harness.

NSN: 8465-01-675-2118
NSN: 8465-01-675-2107

Previously with too much medical gear in an inaccessible pack, half of the medic’s load needs to be moved to an easy to access belt pouch system. The S.O.TECH Medical Belt System provides the medic with a choice of pouches mounted to a load bearing belt which can be suspended optionally from a shoulder harness (included). The load bearing belt is comprised of three elements, a strength rated safety belt, a contoured padded MOLLE over belt, and a slim padded MOLLE over belt (note that there is one safety (riggers cobra belt) and two sleeves per kit). This provides options for long duration use and for short term low profile use. The belts have optional anchor points for the harnesses’ quick disconnect buckles (some medics will want a harness, others will prefer it without a shoulder harness). The belts are designed so the medic can spin the belt around the waist placing the needed pouches to the front. * Belts are sized small/medium or large/X-large.
