Simunition FX training system is intended for use in law enforcement and military training of close-quarter combat. In global, simunition is training ammunition produced by General Dynamics – Ordnance and Tactical Systems Canada Inc. of Quebec, Canada. It dates the to late 1980s when SNC Technologies Inc. (now General Dynamics) created simunition with the goal of providing more realistic training to military and law enforcement agencies. Now simunition is their registered trademark. These simunition rounds are designed for training with police and military service weapons.
Most of the weapons require slight modification for shooting simunition rounds to ensure that normal service rounds cannot be fired and to simulate full recoil with reduced-pressure/reduced-velocity rounds. This makes training more realistic.
Simunition has many advantages for his use. It provides you with most realistic close-range training system with using of non-lethal and non-toxic cartridges. Providing you with force-on-force and man-to-man live fire scenario training without the associated danger. That also means that you can make convenient training at any place and at any time. Simunition is also reliable and affordable and it is high quality.
The core of Simunition FX training system is the FX marking Cartridges and they are known as “the world’s most realistic close-range combat training system”. The patented, reduced-energy, non-lethal cartridges leave a detergent-based, water-soluble color-marking compound. The visible impacts allow accurate assessment of simulated lethality. The cartridges are available in .38 cal. and 9 mm and feature tactical accuracy up to 25 feet (7.6 meters). The 5.56 mm is tactically accurate with ball cartridges to 100 feet (30 meters). No special ballistic facilities are required. They meet the need for a force-on-force and man-to-man training system that is realistic, effective, inexpensive, adaptable and fully portable.
Types of Simunition
- FX Force-on-Force system
- CQT System
- Securiblank system
- Greenshield system
Today, the Simunition FX conversion kits are must have training equipment for military/law enforcement use. The usage of such training equipment helps to build confidence and connections between trainees in the simulated combat situations close to the real combat except it’s not lethal.
