In September 2014, 35 of the world's elite S.W.A.T. Teams converged in Oakland, California, to compete in the 48 hour Urban Shield training exercise. Without pause for two days these teams were tested in various disciplines including emergency medical, traffic control, outbreak quarantine, and combat operations.
A section of a passenger train donated by California's Amtrak Railroad served as the battlefield for these teams to test their combat skills against the clock. The tools provided were RAP4 468 Training Rifles, RAP226 Training Pistols, and prototype DMAG Helix Magazines for maximum realism.
The Scenario: (Team of 8 Operators)
The S.W.A.T. Team is tasked with the security of a foreign diplomat during transit via passenger train. A two-man personal security detachment (PSD) armed with pistols sit with the diplomat on the second floor of train car #1. A six-man quick reactionary force (QRF) stands ready on the first floor of car #5. When an assassin armed with a pistol attempts to attack the diplomat, the PSD must react quickly to kill or capture the assassin while the QRF makes it's way to car #1. Team must act together to extract the diplomat to the safe zone: a designated structure located 500m from the train. However, upon entering the building the team is met by a single-assailant ambush.
Teams were scored by a number of factors including completion time and target hits. The RAP4 training weapons provided the realism they needed to train as they fight - and fight as they train! Armed with the latest line-up from the cutting-edge designs of former firearm engineer Omar Macy, these 35 teams agree that the 468 is truly As Real As it Gets!
