SWAT gear is an essential part of the SWAT team. Without the proper gear they cannot properly run their team and protect the team while fulfilling their mission objectives. Thus they use special weapons and special tactics to reach their goals.
The persons who make up a SWAT team are usually from a specific police squad but in some instances persons with higher power are called in to join the team. Members of SWAT teams are required to continually train to ensure that they are physically fit and can provide the best quality of service. They are usually the top members of their individual police forces.
To do their job properly SWAT team members need specific gear. Necessary gear includes firearms, special clothing, protective gear as well as some standard issue police items. There are items such as body armor that cannot be purchased singly but instead from military suppliers. There are some items however that you can purchase yourself from suppliers such as Range Master Tactical Gear. Below you will find three of these;
