The nature of warfare is ever-changing. Urban combat against guerrilla tactics has necessitated development of specialized defensive techniques to fight the terror the world faces today. Terrorists have created countless variations of IEDs. As a result, law enforcement and military forces have constant need of contemporary C-IED training devices to aid their efforts against those bent on destruction and death.
