    Our best selling and most functional system

    A FiST (Fire Support Team) controls the indirect fire whizzing over the complex battlefield. They refer to multiple maps, templates, and reports to manage the chaotic environment filled with artillery, bombs, and mortars to support the troops on the ground. Oftentimes, FiSTers use both a map and a battle tracking template at once, hence the need for two surfaces. Find the configuration that works the best for your mission.

    Battle Boards are designed as stand-alone tools, but also as components of modular and expandable systems. The Battle Board FiST 4.0 comprises the Expedition 4.0 and the Swift 4.0 - a system designed to provide two writing and display surfaces as well as one internal storage compartment. The two boards link together using the opposing loops and straps of our quick-change system. These features come standard with every board and enable you to mix and match any size (10x12 or 12x16) and any type (Expedition or Swift) to create the setup you prefer.

    The key to our patented design comes from the set of dimensions common between sizes and types of Battle Boards. For example, just as the FiST comprises two boards of the same size, the Expedition and the Swift, you could also easily make one of these combinations:

    • (1) Swift 12x16 linked to (1) Swift 10x12
    • (2) Expedition boards linked together
    • (1) Expedition 12x16 linked to (1) Swift 10x12

      We know that you, the Battle Board user, are getting out there in the most rigorous and austere of environments and are sometimes left out to fight against the elements. This is where our gear shines. Unfortunately though, we do not accept warranties for normal wear and tear or for gear that has been involved in an accident, modified, used against its intended use, exposed to extreme conditions (such as being left in a hot vehicle), or was purchased from a non-authorized reseller.

      Warranty requests submitted for products purchased outside the United States will be handled on a case by case basis and may require additional shipping costs.

      2. Flat rate shipping, international shipping, confirmations, and packaging time:

      Flat rate shipping applies to personal orders to the continental (lower 48) United States. APO/FPO, international, and unit/organizational orders do not qualify for flat rate shipping.

      Shipping confirmations are sent automatically when the package is scanned by the carrier.

      Personal orders are usually processed within three business days. We strive to exceed that timeline and process orders as quickly as possible. 

      Larger unit orders can take up to one week to ship based on added packaging and handling requirements.

      Claims for international orders that are lost by the carrier or damaged in transit should be filed by the customer. Unfortunately, we're unable to insure USPS international orders, therefore, FedEx is the most reliable shipping option for international order. We are also unable to guarantee that orders to APO/FPO addresses will not be damaged or lost in transit since the USPS hands these off to an unknown agent for the last leg of the journey as it makes it's way to the respective government agency.  


      3. What comes with a package or bundle?

      Making any of our boards into a bundle completes the Battle Board system and reduces the price of purchasing the board and accessories separately. Each of our Battle Boards and accessories work together to protect maps and templates from the elements and to simplify your life through organization. Each bundle, depending on the level purchased (Essentials, Plus, Premium), could include a waterproof map pouch for each surface (therefore, a FiST package comes with two map pouches), a protective cover, a Staedtler permanent marker, an accessory pack, overlay sheets, or any number of other accessories that work as a system to protect the board and contents from water, dust, and abrasions. 


      4. Do you have NSNs for the boards?

      We don't have NSNs at this time, but units and organizations have several routes for placing an order. Please check our Government page for options.

      5. Why polycarbonate instead of Plexiglas

      Our abrasion resistant polycarbonate surfaces provide the highest level of protection while retaining the best features of the plastic family of materials. They are virtually unbreakable and are self-extinguishing when set on fire. The abrasion resistant coating helps keep them in great condition for a longer life-cycle, and through the toughness of polycarbonate, our boards can even withstand being crushed by a vehicle and keep on performing. 

      Plexiglas (acrylic) on the other hand will shatter when bent and can easily burn with an open flame. It also yellows much faster in the sunlight. If you're looking to make your own battle board, we strongly suggest using polycarbonate instead of Plexiglass.

      6. Do different sized boards fit together?

      Yes. All of our Battle Boards, except for the Scout, are designed to be both modular and expandable. The 12" x 16" size boards have loops and straps that are the same spacing as the 10" x 12" boards, which makes the Expedition and the Swift compatible with each other for both sizes. Here's a photo that helps illustrate one configuration. 
      Swift and Expedition boards are limited to a two-board configuration when paired together or with two of the same type, but adding one or more Leaf Battle Boards to a rigid Swift or Expedition enables limitless configurations.
      Leaf boards are designed to link together in a grid pattern, enabling them to me used in a CP or COC as a battle tracking wall.


      7. Replacement Polycarbonate

      We offer replacement polycarbonate on our site. Please check the product page here.


      8. Do you have a wholesale program?

      We currently work with a select few retailers and distributors to sell our products at physical locations around the United States. If you are interested in joining our wholesale program, please email us at to start the process. We will request that you fill out an application, send in a few photos of your location, and forward a copy of your sales tax certificate. 






      Military units, fire departments, and other organizations can place orders using credit or Government Purchase cards directly through our site. If you need an invoice, please let us know the type, size, color, and accessories that you'd like with the order.

      We don't have NSNs, at this time.

      For orders larger than allowed using a GPC, we occasionally use FedBid and iRAPT for competitive bidding. Contact us, for more information, or if the order is greater than your current GPC limit.

      When contacting us, please include the following in your message:
      1. Unit/organization
      2. Your position/title
      3. Phone number
      4. Shipping address
