Force on Force / UTM Information
- AR15 rifles only. Your bolt will be replaced by a supplied UTM blue bolt.
- Ensure your AR15 is ‘broken in’ and reliable.
- Empty magazines x 8 – you will be required to put a band of blue tape on the magazines.
- Barrels and chambers pulled through / rodded CLEAN & DRY – no oil/lube. Other working parts lightly oiled.
- UTM approved masks / goggle combinations can be supplied. Preferably: appropriate gear brought by students (see below, recommended).
- UTM Man Marker Rounds rounds will be supplied.
- Left hand ejection port AR15’s will not work with the supplied UTM bolt.
- Ensure you have iron sights and consider removing non-protected optics for the force on force CQB phases of the training.
Personal Protection Equipment:
The minimum of protection is as follows:
- Ballistic Eye Protection.
- No Exposed Skin.
Ballistic Eye Protection: You must wear some type of ballistic goggle or alternatively ballistic eye protection that leaves no gaps / is sealed to your face. Appropriate goggles include military issue / approved. Also, for example, Wiley X offers a number of goggle products (meeting or exceeding military standards). You cannot take any risks with your vision, so make sure your eye protection is adequate. Simple wrap-around shades do not suffice. Fogging is sometimes an issue with goggles, the biggest bugbear for students, so whatever you choose to bring, ensure you use an anti-fog treatment.
Optional (recommended by UTM):
- Loose clothing ‘recommended.’
- An outer layer of BDU style clothing is recommended.
- 2 layers of loose clothing is recommend by UTM, but not required.
- No exposed skin is a mandatory rule.
- Military style helmet, either ballistic or bump, solid with no gaps / holes.
- MVT has a number of airsoft style helmets if you don’t have your own.
- Groin protector/cup.
- Tactical / ballistic gloves.
- Females: chest protector.
- Body armor / plates / chest rig / tactical vest or similar to cover the chest area.
The minimum required is Goggle-style Ballistic Eye Protection, and no exposed skin. Head/neck coverage can be achieved by a balaclava/gator in addition to a hat. For those wishing greater head/face protection from the UTM rounds, you may consider:
- Helmet: bump or ballistic style, gunfighter or ACH shape, no holes. Airsoft pretend helmets work.
- Facial metal mesh protector: HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
- Neck protector. Purpose bought airsoft type or a shemagh or neck gater will work to protect the neck and cover up exposed parts of the head below the helmet to the rear.
- Hearing protection IS NOT required.
- Suitable ballistic paintball helmet/google combinations are approved, so long as the holes are small enough to prevent penetration by UTM rounds.
