The  OPFORFX ® Division was created specifically to service the field of Reality Based Training for: the Australian Special Forces , The Australian Defence Force, the Australian Federal Police, Fire Departments, and Live Counter -Terrorism Training.


Through our close relationship with the Australian Special Forces we have developed a deep understanding of what is needed in designing, supplying and operating Opposing Force  Special Effects.


These are not just an “effect”.


Working closely with the lead trainers, they are tailored to the desired training needs are interactive  :IED’s, Vehicle Born IED`s, Suicide Vest IEDS, area denial charges: (booby traps, trip wires ect, which can be command fired or victim initiated ) thereby creating an immediate immersive cause and effect. This replicates to the maximum extent possible the intense  environment experienced during actual combat operations, and is the enabler  that creates the ultimate stress of war and the critically , physically interactive exchange between soldier and enemy.


They are a pivotal tool in the training arsenal to help ensure our soldiers train as they fight.
