        Part of the Raid Objective

        We have spaces available on the HEAT 2 Combat Class August 22-25. This was formerly the Combat Patrol Class but has involved significantly. This class moves your tactical understanding on from the basic team level of the HEAT 1 class, to squad level tactical operations such as ambush and raid – if you do not attend HEAT 2, you are severely limiting your tactical capabilities.

        The HEAT 2 Class does not involve an overnight patrol base, and is focused on learning and repetition of live fire ‘actions on the objective’ relevant to Recon, Raid and Ambush.

        Hostile Environment Advanced Tactics 2 (HEAT 2) is a four day class which moves beyond the HEAT 1 class, covering essential tactics, techniques and procedures (T.T.P.s) to allow you to detect, assess and reduce hostile threats in an unconventional kinetic environment.  It will give you the knowledge and training that you will need to not only defend your home base, but also to know what techniques hostile forces may use against you. Topics include:

        • Patrol Techniques.
        • Gear: carriage and use.
        • Reconnaissance.
        • Ambush.
        • Raid.
        • Ground Domination Activity (GDA) / Security Patrolling.

        It is a requirement to have attended Hostile Environment Advanced Tactics 1 (HEAT 1) prior to HEAT 2. This class will involve tactical movement, actions on contact including break contact drills, ambush, raid and reconnaissance patrols. This is a live fire class.

        Classes are open to prior HEAT 1 students only. Priced at $800 per person for the four days.

        Accommodation: The second night of the class (night of day 2) will include a day / night reconnaissance patrol, complete by midnight. You are able to stay on site, or in local hotels, for each night of the class – your choice. 

        Gear: The standard HEAT 1 suggested equipment list remains in place for HEAT 2. In addition, you will be expected to bring and carry a lite patrol pack in addition to your load bearing equipment (i.e. battle belt/chest rig/plates).

        Ammunition: 1,200 – 1,500 rounds approx. More is always useful.

        Technology: If you have NVGs and FLIR, bring it. We will work with what you have. 

        Safety: Bring a whistle on a lanyard and a chemical light stick. This will form part of your safety equipment for the night recce patrol. Pen flares and a compass/map will be loaned.

        Wrist Watch: analogue watch with luminous dial/hands is preferred.

            This class is currently at 5. There is something up with HEAT 2 and I can’t figure it out. I already moved this class once. I am definitely going to run the class with 5, but I want 8 as a great number.

            So, what is the chat out there about HEAT 2? People don’t think they need it?

            In fact, this class is the only live fire class that actually teaches you to operate as a squad and conduct real operations. HEAT 1 is a basic intro to tactics class up to team level. It is teaching you techniques which are designed to be incorporated into tactics. You can achieve the incorporation into squad tactics on FoF and Combat Leader, which are all complimentary classes, but you are not learning live fire squad attack, ambush, raid, break contact etc. I highly recommend HEAT 2 prior to CLC for maximum benefit.

            In fact, I would not have any of the classes we offer if they were not all complimentary as part of a progression / parallel development of live fire / airsim, to make you tactically capable.

            Properly, although we allow latitude as an intro to tactical training for the FoF classes, including CLC, by allowing people to train with no pre-reqs (no safety issue), the FoF class are best taken once the live fire HEAT 1 and 2 are completed, as a test of skills.

            Is there some misunderstanding of HEAT 2 based on what the class used to be? People think they are going to be out overnight or hiking miles? I had a guy just book who thought he absolutely needed night vision for the day/night recce, but in fact we have always had mixed teams of NODS / No-NODS go out on that. If there are misunderstandings, this forum is here to communicate and clear that stuff up.

                Max,

                I’m going through a divorce right now but will sign up for the class but I am also not wanting to be out $800 if I have to go to court on the custody. Let me know if i can Sign up and hopefully I can make it. I will as the lawyers about it. Most of your course have been falling on Drill weekends for me and making money has been a priority to pay for lawyer bills.

                    Come on guys and gals! This class takes the basic maneuvers that you learned in HEAT 1 and shows you how to really apply them to your advantage when defending whats yours or conducting ground domination activities. You will not regret taking this class.

                    Also, read the Tactical Manual!

                                If you are following the MVT IG, you will have seen the work we are doing on a new ambush site. Will be way better, and not so steep as the one we have been using.

                                                    Koolwink is booked. When I called to make sure everything was good to go today they did not see my reservation I had made so I will be over at the South Branch Inn.

                                                    I guess I better bring a few of my Unit Patches so they do not freak out if I come in dirty.
