Multi-Assault Counter-Terrorism Action Capabilities – In A Back Pack. 

Sure the name sounds exciting, but really… what’s in a name?

In this case you have to understand the meaning of Multi-Assault Counter-Terrorism Action Capabilities (MACTAC). MACTAC is Law Enforcement’s response to dynamic multifaceted attack situations. These are the kind of situations that can, and have recently, produced major casualties quick.

Multiple sites, multiple threats and multiple units responding. Basically the very kind of situation that the word FUBAR was created for. So to understand what a backpack has to do with this, you have to know a little bit more about the type of training and equipment required to support such a dynamic and diverse domain.
