TECC + CBRN = Tactical CBRN Preview #1
This is a preview of the upcoming T-CBRN course, available Fall, 2021.
Chemical warfare isn’t just something that happened in 1917. Though stockpiled by the Nazis during WW2, the first battlefield use of nerve agents didn’t occur until the Iran – Iraq war in the 1980s.
- In 1995 a doomsday cult used dilute sarin nerve agent in two attacks in Japan.
- Most recently, both nerve agents and chlorine gas barrel bombs have been deployed during the conflict in Syria.
- ISIL used mustard agents against Kurds in Iraq, as well as during the siege on Mosul.
- All varieties of chemical warfare agents have been placed in rockets, bombs, and both mortar and artillery shells. This makes them a very portable and convenient IED risk.
- The DOD BioDefense section is amazed terrorists haven’t made more use of biological weapons with their reduced cost.
- In 2004 a UK terrorist cell was caught collecting radioactive material out of thousands of smoke detectors in preparation for a radiologic dispersion device.
This course provides you a realistic understanding of both the threats and their treatments.
Expected course time is currently 8+ hours.
