Battle Area Complex
This complex provides a collective live fire home station training facility for all elements of the Stryker Brigade Combat Team (SBCT). SBCT crews and dismounted soldiers train and test their ability to detect, identify, engage and defeat stationary and moving combined arms targets in both open and urban terrain environments. This complex also supports tactical live fire operations independently of, or simultaneously with, supporting vehicles in free maneuver. This complex accommodates training with sub-caliber and/or Training devices.
Primary features include:
Forty-three Stationary armor targets
Thirty five Stationary infantry targets (SITS)
Fourteen Moving infantry targets
Two Breach wall/Building facades
Two Portable shoothouses
Two Lanes (2 course roads in 1 lane, no course roads in the free maneuver lane)
Eight Hasty battle positions
Three Landing zones (locations not shown)
Six Moving armor targets
Twenty five SIT clusters @ 7 emplacements each
Four Machine gun bunkers w/sound effects simulator
Two Live fire villages (1 with 7 buildings and 1 with 5 buildings)
Two Trench lines
Eighteen Mortar simulations devices (RGSS)
All targets are fully automated, utilizing event-specific, computer-driven target scenarios and scoring. Targets will receive and transmit digital data from the range operations center. The captured data is then compiled and available to the unit during the after action review.
Additional information: This range uses thermal targets, night illumination devices, and hostile-fire, target-kill, and visual flash simulators. Location of the bore sight must be coordinated with the trainer. Gunnery tasks requiring the usage of dud producing ammunition cannot be fired on the complex. Provisions for these tasks must be made in impact areas adjacent to the complex.
