Here at VTact we truly understand the importance of providing tactical teams with an environment in which they can hone their skills.
Real tactical situations require pinpoint accuracy, exceptional judgement and calm, measured reactions under pressure. Field life: Soldiers hone tactical, technical skills
Because many tactical teams engage in life and death situations, simulating experiences in which your team can practice and hone critical skills has, in the past, been incredibly difficult. Lifeliner signal Soldiers hone technical, tactical skills | Article | The United States Army VTact has been working on this problem for some time and we are pleased to announce that we are now able to provide tactical clients with an exciting custom simulation site.
The VTact team set up multiple VTact 3D shooting dummies along with the VTact react units so that you can communicate the “danger” of each target to the team and then measure their performance. (Read more about the VTact 3D shooting dummies and react systems here Home – VTact South Africa)
This gives your tactical team 4 key advantages:
#1: VTact’s live tactical experience.
One of the key aspects that is most difficult to practice when training tactical teams is the chaotic environment many tactical teams face. This includes noise, visual impairments such as smoke, and unpredictable factors such as civilians.
VTact’s simulation sites enable tactical teams to practice in an environment where these elements are simulated. Smoke bombs, speakers, lighting and the placement of your VTact 3D dummies all add to the sites efficacy in recreating a live and dynamic tactical site.
#2: Training tactical discretion
One of the most important skills for tactical teams to learn is discretion. When to shoot and when to hold back. Honing these skills is incredibly difficult in an ordinary shooting range and incredibly dangerous if your tactical team gets this wrong in a live situation.
VTact’s custom tactical sites enable you to mark certain 3D shooting dummies as “dangerous” using the VTact react units. The VTact react units then provide the team with feedback on their decisions, including the time it took for them to make that decision and the accuracy of their decision.

Refining your tactical team’s discretion in highly stressful situations could be the difference between success and failure in the field.
#3: Training tactical accuracy
Accuracy at a shooting range vs accuracy in a live tactical situation is two very different things. Utilising VTact’s 3D shooting dummies and VTact’s React units in a dynamic live site simulation, VTact is able to provide your tactical team with the challenge of accurately shooting the right targets in the right place. You may have some targets that need a “wound” shot and others that need a “fatal” shot. VTact’s live simulation sites enable your team to train and measure this level of accuracy, giving them an enormous advantage in the field.
#4: Training as a tactical team
Key to any tactical team’s success is communication and field teamwork. This is difficult to train at a shooting range because of the static nature of the environment. VTact’s live simulation sites provide your team with an environmental simulation and targets to work with. Training as a team enables each individual to learn how to communicate more accurately, develop leadership skills and enable the team to work as a cohesive whole.

These 4 key advantages to working with a custom tactical site are just the tip of the iceberg as the VTact team works with individual clients to build simulation sites that best mimic the environment your tactical team will need to work in. Some examples of different sites could include dense vegetation, water hazards, open terrain with little cover or buildings. Working with VTact you can also set up different simulation set ups which could include hostage situations, mixed civilian and target scenarios and much more.
