Canadian military training tool?
If I'm understanding this web page correctly, this link would let you download a mod for SWAT 4 if you've got both SWAT 4 and the TSS expansion pack (aka SWAT 4 Gold Edition) which is used as a military training tool by the Canadian military. If that's true (I'm still downloading the file and haven't tried to use it yet) it means that you can get a genuine military training tool to play with on your computer, which is too cool. I can hardly wait to try it out.

If you have the ability to stop for coffe at Tim Hortons in the game, then yes it is genuine

It's also authentic if it has an "iltis module", were you're made to drive a vehicle that rolls over and kills you if anybody so much as coughs in its general direction.

It's not a military training tool.
We use some kinda austrailian softwear which includes their rifles and vehicles that drive on the right hand side. No swat 4.
A few years ago some civilians made "canadian forces" mods which featured the C7 assault rifle and iltis for some kinda 1st person shooter type game.You are not free whose liberty is won by the rigour of other, more righteous souls. Your are merely protected. Your freedom is parasitic, you suck the honourable man dry and offer nothing in return. You who have enjoyed freedom, who have done nothing to earn it

Guiltyspark: it is too a training tool. See this video: http://www.armyelearning.ca/cfda/GamingTrial.wmv
I found out that you can host a multiplayer game, set it to CO-OP, but then set it as a LAN game so that as a home computer user you can solo all the maps in CO-OP mode. It's a lot of fun, as they've got skins for the Canadian military, the mounties, the Quebec police, and so on. They also let you play as an Ohio state trooper or a New Orleans cop so that's a lot of fun as well.
Some of the levels are really tough to solo, though. I have not been able to succeed in preventing hostage deaths or being killed as a single player because the area is really big and there are open spaces. I guess that that's actually a good thing since it's more realistic. I mean, it wouldn't be a very good training tool if it were plausible to solo all sorts of hostage situations taking place in big bus stations or whatever. I feel like you really do need a team in situations like that carrying a solid variety of equipment.
