Mission Rehearsal Training (MRT) and Opposing Forces (OPFOR)

Our Teams support AFSOC aircraft / aircrew initial qualification, upgrade qualification, and continuation training by emulating friendly and opposing forces. Our friendly force teams develop scenarios in which either a Joint Terminal Attack Controller (JTAC), Ground Force Commander (GFC), or other air assets as required. The opposing force teams mimic enemy Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures (TTPs). We conduct operations using encrypted radios, at least one 4-wheel drive vehicle per team, and the necessary array of personnel to complete the mission. We also provide Landing Zone Control Officers and Landing Zone Safety Officers to provide aircraft terminal training for AFSOC.
