Multipurpose Training Range

This Multipurpose Training Range is used to train and test crews and dismounted infantry squads on the skills necessary to detect, identify, and defeat stationary infantry and stationary/moving armor targets in a tactical array. In addition to live-fire, this complex can also be used for training with sub-caliber and/or laser training devices. The complex is specifically designed o satisfy the training and qualification requirements for the crews and sections of armor, infantry and aviation units. This complex also supports dismounted infantry squad tactical live-fire operations either independently of, or simultaneously with, supporting vehicles.

Primary features include:
Four Moving armor targets
Ten clusters @ 7 SITs each
Four Battle positions
Twenty Stationary armor targets
Seventy Stationary infantry targets
One Lane (two course roads)

All targets are fully automated, utilizing event-specific, computer-driven target scenarios and scoring

Associated Range Operations and Control facilities:
Standard Armor ROCA Facilities except Range Operations Center, Large (17124) replaced by Range Operations Center, Small (17123)

Additional information:
This complex uses thermal targets, night illumination devices, and hostile-fire, target-kill, and visual flash simulators.

Location of the boresight must be coordinated with the training. Gunnery tasks requiring the usae of dud producing ammunition cannot be fired on the complex. Provisions for these tasks must be made in impact areas adjacent to the complex. Hard targets may be positioned in the impact area to facilitate RF/IR signatures for aviation gunnery.
