Victor Range is the one of the additions to the Range Complex
(October 2012) Facility 13 Automated Live Fire Shoot House
The shoothouse provides units with a facility to train and evaluate individual Soldiers and squads on tasks necessary to move tactically (enter and clear a room; enter and clear a building), engage targets, conduct breaches, and practice target discrimination in a live-fire environment.
The facility is divided into 8 separate rooms with 2 corridors for a minimal net training capability of 1,400 square feet. 20 target/camera outlets. 10 precision human urban targets (HUTs). All targets are fully automated and the event-specific target scenario is computer-driven and scored from the after action review building. The range operating system is fully capable of providing immediate performance feedback to the using participants. All targetry are life-like precision targets that have re configurable plug and play capability.

(September 2012) Echo Range Automated Record Fire Range
This range is used to train and test individual Soldiers on the skills necessary to identify, engage, and defeat stationary infantry targets for day/night qualification requirements with the M16 and M4 series rifles. The range consists of 16 lanes with a total of 112 stationary infantry targets. All targets are fully automated and the event-specific target scenario is computer-driven and scored from the tower. The range operating system is fully capable of providing immediate performance feedback to the using participants. Night firing is accomplished from the baseline, firing at the 50-meter targets. All stationary infantry targets will be equipped with a muzzle flash simulator and have the capability to use thermal blankets. Target boots are 4 meters apart and placed 25 meters from the baseline.
(May 2011) Facility 8 Tactical Training Base
The Tactical Training Bases (TTB’s) provide both life support and a realistic environment from which related training will take place over an extended period of time. The concept of the TTB is to facilitate the “theater immersion concept” and replicate conditions within the AOR from which an occupying unit conducts all training. The physical structure/layout of a TTB represents near-realistic conditions with respect to permanent base camp operations with adequate space and equipment/material to meet capacity, security, force protection, life-support, maintenance, and training requirements for 300 personnel.
(March 2011) Facility 15 Military Operations Urban Terrain (MOUT)
The facility contains 10 buildings with both one and two story buildings. Only blank ammunition, CCMCK, and UTM are authorized for use on the facility. This MOUT Course is designed to conduct multi-echelon, full spectrum operations training up to company level units.
(June 2010) Facility 12 Urban Assault Course
This facility is used to train individual Soldiers, squads, and platoons on tasks necessary to operate within a built-up/urban area.
Station 1: Individual and Team Trainer. This station is a three-room trainer where team leaders and squad leaders train the basics of building and room clearing.
Station 2: Squad and Platoon Trainer. This station is a four-structure trainer with multiple rooms.
Squads build upon tasks learned at Station 1 and begin to learn the concepts of clearing multiple buildings. The station is designed in such a way that it can be used as individual buildings with a narrow street or as rooms inside a building with a long connecting hallway.
Station 3: Grenadier Gunnery Trainer. This station is a live-fire station where M203 gunners master target engagements in an urban area, move tactically, and respond to the fire commands.
Station 4: Offense/Defense House. This station is where a platoon can train to attack and/or defend a building. This station can also be divided into a number of smaller training stations to reinforce training or to train tasks not yet trained at the other stations.
Station 5: Underground Trainer. This station provides training for subterranean operations.
Targetry in stations 1, 2 and 4 are precision interior targets that need to be manually reset, reconfigured, and scored after each use. Station 3 targets are fully automated, and the event-specific target scenario is computer-driven and scored from a small shed at the baseline of the station.
