A "Fireforce" referred to a military tactic employed by the Rhodesian Security Forces from 1965-1979 which saw helicopter and airborne infantry deployed in operations that enveloped and destroyed the enemy. Widely regarded as one of the successful counter insurgency warfare tactics ever utilized, the exploits of Rhodesia's Fireforce soldiers in their fight against communist totalitarianism continue to inspire awe and reverence. In their own way, we believe that these gallant young men became Africa's Greatest Generation. Inspired by their example, a few army buddies decided they needed to get their hands on the legendary Rhodesian Brushstroke kit of the Rhodesian Bush War.
Fireforce Ventures was founded 7 July 2016 as a small business operating out of a dingy basement in Alberta, Canada. Originally intended to be a hobby project to reproduce the vaunted Rhodesian Brushstroke and pay tribute to the Bush War Fireforce missions, the business saw rapid growth. Most of the time, it was growth we could barely keep up with and the constraints of operating a business in Canada made it near impossible to keep our inventory stocked. After over 6 rocky years operating out of the "Great" White North, we permanently relocated our brand and operations to the United States on 25 September 2022. We currently operate out of a private location somewhere in North Texas along the Oklahoma border.
We heavily invest time and effort reproducing and stocking rare camo patterns and kit that are otherwise impossible to find. On top of that, we're always scouring the far corners of the world for pieces of military surplus at exceptional prices. Inspired by Africa's Greatest Generation, professional soldiers, mercenaries, and adventurers of yore, we absolutely love our jobs.
That job is to ultimately give you pieces of kit you can't find anywhere else, and offer the milsurp selection your old neighborhood army surplus store used to have. We'll make every effort to ensure that you can "operate" anywhere from Baghdad to Bermuda with style!
