The Army Implements A New Program To Train Soldiers To Fight Underground
We did recognize, in a megacity that has underground facilities -- sewers and subways and some of the things we would encounter

The Army has launched a new program that will train 26 of 31 active combat brigades to fight in underground conditions around the world.

This program cost more than $572 million and was started last year.

Why is this important? Today’s Army will face a lot of challenges from underground dwellers, something they’ve never faced before. Many tunnels in the Middle East lead to many places, and that goes for miles. Our troops might have to fight in such areas.

Think about it. Huge underneath cities or dark as night tunnels are some of the new battlegrounds for our men and women. This training program will get them ready.

For this new type of warfare, infantry units will need to know how to effectively navigate, communicate, breach heavy obstacles and attack enemy forces in underground mazes ranging from confined corridors to tunnels as wide as residential streets. Soldiers will need new equipment and training to operate in conditions such as complete darkness, bad air and lack of cover from enemy fire in areas that challenge standard Army communications equipment.

Senior leaders have mentioned small parts of the effort in public speeches, but Army officials at Fort Benning, Georgia’s Maneuver Center of Excellence — the organization leading the subterranean effort — have been reluctant to discuss the scale of the endeavor.

“We did recognize, in a megacity that has underground facilities — sewers and subways and some of the things we would encounter … we have to look at ourselves and say ‘ok, how does our current set of equipment and our tactics stack up?'” Col. Townley Hedrick, commandant of the Infantry School at the Army’s Maneuver Center of Excellence at Fort Benning, Georgia, told Military.com in an interview. “What are the aspects of megacities that we have paid the least attention to lately, and every megacity has got sewers and subways and stuff that you can encounter, so let’s brush it up a little bit.” [via Military.com]
