The US Marine Corps (USMC) has announced that the Special Reaction Team (SRT) carried out a wide range of weapons sustainment training and tactics.

Members of the SRT team are connected to the Provost Marshal’s Office (PMO). They are on quick alert always to tackle high-risk emergencies, such as hostage situations, barricaded subjects, an active shooter, among others.

SRT Marine Corps Installations Pacific (MCIPAC) Headquarters and Support (H&S) Battalion team commander gunnery sergeant Russell Harned said: “Today, we shot from a tower structure to simulate engaging a hostel target from a sniper position.

“Afterward, we moved to a short range to practice static fire, multiple hostel engagements, and team movement drills.”

According to Harned, the latest training involved the team members to undertake a familiarisation course of fire with different weapons, including Colt M45A1 close quarter battle pistol, P320-M18 pistol, M4A1 Carbines and M40A6 rifle.

The SRT team primarily works to contain, control, neutralise and dominate a high-risk threat, both psychologically and physically.
