What “complex operation” are they envisioning?
The US army has built a fake city designed to be used during combat training exercises.
The 300 acre ‘town’ includes a five story embassy, a bank, a school, an underground subway and train station, a mosque, a football stadium, and a helicopter landing zone.
Located in Virginia, the realistic subway station comes complete with subway carriages and the train station has real train carriages.
The subway carriages even carry the same logo as the carriages in Washington DC.
There are also bridges and several other structures which can be transformed into different scenarios.
The $96 million is designed to meticulously “replicate complex operational environments and develop solutions”.
