Made by South African’s for South African’s Tactical Training teams to prepare for South African Tactical situations.
There is a reason experienced South African tactical servicemen and women are renown thought out the world. They are brave, strategic and due to the variety of conflict situations they find themselves in, some of the most experienced in managing tactical circumstances as efficiently as possible – Read more here.
The biggest problem with training tactical servicemen and women is that if the training doesn’t equip them properly, the consequences in the field can literally be life or death – read article here. VTact tactical equipment has been designed by the very best South African tactical servicemen and women to help ensure that tactical training has the real- feel factors necessary to equip trainee servicemen and women for the field.

Key to any tactical training are the shooting dummies used in target practice. Most tactical training requires team members to shoot at a target board painted either as a dartboard or with an outline of a human. There are a wide range of issues with using two-dimensional paper-based targets, including:
- Shooting at a two-dimensional target when real-life situations include three-dimensional targets.
- The behaviour of a bullet is different when it is hitting paper or board compared to flesh and bone.
- Two-dimensional shooting targets are too easy to disassociate from leaving servicemen and women unprepared for real life situations.
VTact has solved these problems by creating a three-dimensional VTact rubber compound target that supports tactical training as follows:
1. VTact’s 3D shooting dummies increase tactical team accuracy.
Servicemen and women are able to better gauge the success of their marksmanship on a three-dimensional dummy. It is very difficult to understand the efficacy of a shot on a two-dimensional piece of paper or board because of the shape and curve of the human body. While the lines on ordinary targets give an indication of where the best area to aim for may be, a three-dimensional VTact target is much more effective in teaching servicemen and women where to aim because the impact of the bullet is more visible.

2. VTact’s 3D shooting dummies enable strategic shooting practice
With a three-dimensional VTact shooting target, servicemen and women can practice different types of shots. In the field it is never as simple as “shoot-to-kill”. Learning where to shoot to disable an opponent could be the difference between a serviceman or woman doing jail time for homicide or receiving an accolade for bravery under fire. The three-dimensional VTact shooting target enables strategic shooting practice so that servicemen and women can practice the shots that will defuse a tactical situation as quickly as possible.

3. VTact’s 3D shooting dummies empower servicemen and women to practice difficult shots
In normal shooting target ranges the targets are placed at right angle to the shooter’s gun, but in real-life situations targets may be at completely different angles. Helping servicemen and women to prepare for the unpredictable nature of real-life situations is critical to their success and may even contribute to their survival in the field.

4. VTact’s 3D shooting dummies help to prepare servicemen and women psychologically.
The most difficult part of any tactical training is psychological training. To actively shoot at another human being, regardless of how dire the circumstances might be is the toughest part of tactical training. The VTact three-dimensional shooting dummy is more lifelike than a printed board, as is the sound of impact and resulting damage to the dummy. The VTact three-dimensional dummy helps to mentally train the servicemen and women so that they are able to react appropriately when the time is right.
Your tactical team are often faced with high intensity situations that require split second decision making. Assisting them to be as prepared as possible for any situation is not only your responsibility but a privilege as you train these incredible tactical warriors.
