Defenders train regularly to maintain readiness, so when they receive the call to put their lives at risk for the people they protect, they’re prepared. The 100th Security Forces Squadron at RAF Mildenhall, England, has incorporated a firearms training simulator into their regular training and it’s helping them increase their readiness and posture.
The simulator makes it possible for the “Bloody Hundredth’s” Defenders to immerse themselves in a number of different training situations that they may face in the field.
“It’s a 300-degree range with five screens, all of them are interactive so students can potentially interact with any of the screens during a scenario,” said Staff Sgt. Jacob Udell, 100th SFS instructor. “We have more than 300 different scenarios to choose from and we can create our own scenarios specific to RAF Mildenhall.
