Weapon Effects can supply the entire MIL-SIM-FX catalogue from our UK distribution and service centre. Since 2004 MIL-SIM-FX have developed an extensive range of modular and interchangeable Non-Pyrotechnic Weapon Effect Simulators. Weapon Effects have selected some of the most popular effects and devices as outlined below:
- Dismounted Training
- Counter Terrorism Training
- Situation Management Training
- Urban Terrain Training
- Underwater Explosive Training
- Live Fire Training
- Anti Personnel Training
- Unexploded Ordinance (UXO) Training
The E3 Radio detonation improvised explosive device is an anti-personnel IED which is housed in a magnetic caddy allowing the device to be attached to a vehicle or any magnetic surface. The unit is small enough to be easily concealed from view. The E3 Radio device can be detonated from up to 150m away.
The Twin Pipe Bomb Trip Mine is one of the simplest devices available. The Trip Mine uses a physical trip line across the path of the intended victim, with adjustable hair triggers for scalable training difficulty. Two effect tubes gives a larger, louder effect with no additional risk to the trainee.
The most versatile and realistic Suicide Vest simulators on the market: the MIL-SIM-FX Suicide Vests simulate a victim worn improvised explosive device. There are versions which can be triggered either electronically or pneumatically by the wearer or via radio command by a trainer up to 150m away. The tubes can be attached to the victim to give a 360° effect or focussed just on the front.
The pressure release booby trap is a compact and readily concealed booby trap device which can be primed with as little as 7kg of pressure. As soon as 1kg of that weight is removed, the device will detonate with a loud bang and a cloud of smoke.
The MIL-SIM-FX Distraction Device is a compact, hand thrown device which has an adjustable time delay from 1-7 seconds along with a powder cavity to give off a cloud of Cool Smoke at the moment of detonation. Couple this with the loud audio report this device is an incredibly cost effective substitute for a real pyrotechnic device.
Landmine or IED
The pressure applied landmine or improvised explosive device is a compact device which can easily be buried in earth or concealed in an urban scenario. The device will detonate when 7kg of pressure is applied. The explosion can be located separately from the trigger using an air line extension.
The Drop Fire Mortar Simulator is an authentic mortar firing simulator which creates the visual effect of someone loading and firing an 80mm mortar. The device can be used by trainees to develop observation skills or to practice loading and firing drills.
To couple with the mortar firing effect there are a number of different devices which can be easily concealed and detonated by a range of triggers in order to simulate mortar strikes on patrolling troops, convoys or compounds.
Underwater explosion simulations: Many of the MIL-SIM-FX devices can be concealed and detonated underwater giving a spectacular blast and real shock factor to trainees. Due to the machined aluminium construction the devices need no extra anchoring under the water.
