Having spoken to other special forces operators from different countries in previous editions, they've all admitted to having had some contact with Airsoft while they were still active in their units. Has this also been the case for you as part of UKSF? How did you come to hear about Airsoft? Within UKSF we didn’t experience Airsoft play. We trained with paint rounds and sim-munition. This is great for force on force training and is very clear when you have been hit and thus have to be treated as a real-time casualty. This tests the teams and forces them to train hard and be very tactical and aware when progressing through any assault evolution. It’s good to make mistakes and learn from them.
