Max Talk Monday 17: Immediate Action Drill: Fight Through! Live Fire Drill

Monday, April 8th, 2019

This is the seventeenth installment of ‘Max Talk Monday’ which shares select episodes from a series of instructional videos. Max Velocity Tactical (MVT) has established a reputation on the leading edge of tactical live fire and force on force training. MVT is dedicated to developing and training tactical excellence at the individual and team level.

This video is a drill from the Texas Class 2019. It may look a little different from what many would expect for an immediate action drill, but specific training objectives are being exercised. This drill simulates, using a five man team, an aggressive immediate action drill for surprise enemy contact, in this case flank (right), best for use in close country. In this drill, there are eight mannikin targets hidden in positions of cover / concealment – there are no typical targets, simply the manikins concealed in natural firing positions beside / behind trees and scrub. .

The specific training sequence / objectives of the drill are:
-React to contact (flank right).
-Conduct a ‘cover shoot’, designed to kill enemy in their concealed positions.
-‘Fight Through’ to the limit of advance (LOA).

Specifically, the fight through is being conducted as a skirmish line, with buddy pairs operating independently but in conjunction with each other, controlled by the centrally located team leader.
‘Move / Fire’ is being conducted, a different technique to standard fire and movement, where fire is generated continuously both when static and while advancing. In close country, Move / Fire is a technique that in this case is used to generate a large amount of continuous fire to aid a smaller team in winning the firefight.

Detailed explanations can be found in the MVT Tactical Manual: Small Unit Tactics.

Max is a tactical trainer and author, a lifelong professional soldier with extensive military experience. He served with British Special Operations Forces, both enlisted and as a commissioned officer; a graduate of the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst. Max served on numerous operational deployments, and also served as a recruit instructor. Max spent five years serving as a paramilitary contractor in both Iraq and Afghanistan; the latter two years working for the British Government in Helmand Province, Afghanistan.

Federal Resources Adds CounterDrug Training Course to Training Capabilities Profile

Sunday, March 31st, 2019

 

Stevensville, MD (March 20, 2019) – Federal Resources, a leading government solutions provider, announced today that they have expanded their training portfolio with the creation of a new initiative specifically designed to address the growing drug crisis in the United States. The Federal Resources CounterDrug Training Team leverages Federal Resources’ arsenal of the latest, innovative equipment and training solutions to support federal, state and local law enforcement efforts against the war on illegal drugs.

Established in 2019, the CounterDrug training program’s mission is to educate law enforcement teams about the evolving threat climate by utilizing a multi-layered approach; instructors will demonstrate the most innovative technologies, best practice policies and procedures to equip students with the knowledge and skills they need to respond effectively to a drug related incident, then test new skills in hands-on, actual agent detection skill stations. Federal Resources has combined the best in-class instructors, with our manufacturer partners fielding the most modern equipment available, to deliver a scientifically validated curriculum that is reinforced with realistic hands-on training.

“We want our students to be not only competent, but also confident. Federal Resources’ focus is on expanding our support of federal, state, and local teams through this new training program. Topics covered in this course enable the personnel on the front lines and in government agencies to not only receive critical information regarding the use, spread, and effects of drugs, but also give them a hands-on experience so that they’ll be fully prepared for whatever drug related call comes in next. This course gives officers a huge boost of confidence in their equipment and procedures; they learn to safely field test these substances in the classroom and then take what they’ve learned to safely mitigate hazardous situations and save lives” said Gary Sharp, Director of Training at Federal Resources.

Federal Resources Training division offers 10 other courses, each with a unique focus and objective, that are relevant to the most pressing concerns that responders face today. With courses that extend from radiological response training to HazMat/WMD exposure and synthetic opioids, each course teaches students how to respond to a number of threat scenarios safely and efficiently.

Max Talk Monday: Texas Class 2019 Break Contact Flank (Right) Team Drill

Monday, March 25th, 2019

This is the fifteenth installment of ‘Max Talk Monday’ which shares select episodes from a series of instructional videos. Max Velocity Tactical (MVT) has established a reputation on the leading edge of tactical live fire and force on force training. MVT is dedicated to developing and training tactical excellence at the individual and team level.

Break Contact Flank (Right) Team Drill is video footage of a team break contact drill conducted at the Texas Class 2019. This was a team level live fire training exercise with simulated enemy to the right side of the trail. As some are likely to point out, the team was moving on a trail, and a rolling (multi-target) contact is simulated from the right side, in order to keep the peel going for longer for training benefit. Utilizing a trail is an effective training aid because the route in is clearly markedly / recognizable; moving back along same is the drill for getting out of the contact – back along the route already traveled. The drill shown is the immediate action drill, which can be subsequently modified by leadership if required due to increased complexity of the situation. However, it is important to have a drilled, violent, effective immediate action drill to maximize the chances of surviving a contact such as this.

RE Factor Tactical – Defense Target

Friday, March 22nd, 2019

The Defense Target

The Defense Target is designed to give you an enhanced training experience by offering one target that can be customized with 18 fitted stickers. This allows the target to be used in multiple different scenarios.  Available sticker areas include:

Left Hand

Right Hand

Waistline

A Unique Shooting Target

Each sticker is designed to perfectly match up with the target’s hands or waistline to create a new target scenario that appears natural to the shooter.  This allows instructors to take one target and change scenarios rapidly. This keeps students from making engagement decisions without assessing the target- because they memorized the targets after performing multiple runs.  

The Defense Target matches with 18 different stickers (sold separately). These stickers overlay on the right hand, left hand and waistline seamlessly.  These durable 3 Mil stickers allow for hundreds of target variations. Stickers are designed to be usable 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.
