The Invertron, a hot stuffy room in which a screen, projector, speakers and many small monitors and radios are to be found all to aid in the training of Arty [[TAC]] parties.

Every type of battlefield fire support is available from the [[81mm Mortar]] to [[Naval Gunfire]] and the legendary [[Grid Square Removal System]]. A quaint piece of the [[UK]] or sometimes somewhere further afield is displayed whilst you attempt to bomb the hell out of it. No permanent damage is done to the display unless you are lucky enough to hit a bright red target which may turn black. All ammunition types in service are available and suitably poor graphical interpretations of their effects are displayed on screen. Particularly comical is airburst [[HE]]!

A favourite of the UKLF OP competition of old, OP parties would be forced to crawl into a 'hole' constructed solely from classroom desks and be forced to conduct their [[Fire Mission]] by staring out a small letter box whilst a [[SMIG]] would jump up and down on the desk, letting off the odd [[Smoke Grenade]] and playing old [[WW2]] soundtracks whilst white blobs representing the [[3rd Shock Army|Third Shock Army]] would slowly approach you on the screen.

Invertron was replaced by Invertron AFCT, and both replaced the [[puff range]]. The original Invertron was done with slides and multiple projectors. AFCT was a computer generated jobbie that worked on a telejector.
