The South African National Defence Force (SANDF) is responsible for enabling stability in Africa. This implies that peace support and counter terror operations will need to be carried out across the continent. The strategy is for rapid response of a highly mobile force based on contingencies or as problems develop. It is very difficult to train soldiers for these missions due to the variety and infrequency of scenarios. Training is therefore limited to relatively unrealistic scenarios that either don't include live fire or enemy forces, or have only small teams training simultaneously.
