Simulated Urban Exercise Area

Let’s face it, not all threats occur in unpopulated area. Sometimes the threats occur in urban areas. That’s why here at The Ranch we have our very own simulated urban exercise area, or MOUT area. It contains approximately 20 buildings in various configurations that include one three story building and three two story buildings.

This exercise area offers:

  • Multiple rooms
  • Hallways
  • “T” intersection hallways
  • Stairwells
  • Breaching doors for use of pry bars of Hallagan tools.
  • Rams and shotgun breaching rounds
  • Breaching window
  • Hard surface, gravel crossover streets transition throughout

OPFOR is available for scheduling to enhance training. This includes:

  • Regionally specific clothing
  • Appropriate language
  • Weapons and role playing props (EX: goat hearts)

Training aids which can be utilized in the simulated urban exercise area are:

  • Simunitions
  • Paintball guns
  • Flash bang grenades
  • Smoke grenades
  • IED Simulators

We also offer a covered combative area where students can learn hand to hand combative techniques and methods while remaining out of the inclement weather.
