MOUT Training - 1 Day Course - The 14 day course will prepare a battalion for “Military Operations in Urban Terrain” There will be both classroom and in city training at a mock up city, as well as fire houses for breech training.





Day 1 -2





Classroom


Soldiers will have classroom instruction about some of the classic Urban battles of the last 100 years. Battles such as Hue, Stalingrad and Beruit.





In the field


Squads and platoons are led through the city and are taught Observation and Fields of Fire. They learn to avoid short buildings as they have restrictive observation and fields of fire. Weapon ranges can be greatly reduced because of buildings and other manmade structures. Soldiers are taught to fight to the high ground, as taller buildings.can provide perches which enhance line of sight (LOS) for observation and communications as well as for individual and crew-served weapons.





Several platoons are made to sleep in the MOUT training area and learn to police their area of build up.





Day 3-4





Classroom


Soldiers study the value of employing mortars, tanks and artillery inside a MOUT training area. They review the role tanks played in the battle of Hue city and how artillery can be used outside the built-up area to isolate or prevent isolation with indirect-fire; and within the built-up area to provide direct-fire support.





In the Field


Soldiers are taught the how to conceal themselves inside urban terrain. They are also taught to conceal themselves in man-made obstacles like rubble or destroyed homes. They employ the lessons taught the day before about observation and Fields of Fire as unannounced they are fired upon by spec op forces using MILES rifles and are expected return fire using their own MILES rifles and begin to call in for air or artillery support.





Day 5-6





Full morning in the field. In the morning the soldiers learn different ways to breech a door, battering ram, small explosives, how to kick one in etc. They are then taught room clearing techniques and basic close quarter combat techniques. They will clear rooms all morning.





In the Classroom


The will review footage of the room clearing exercises from the morning.





Donning night vision goggles, they will repeat the mornings room clearing exercises and do it in the dark. This will be the last time they practice room clearing techniques without have actors stand in as either combatants or civilians.





Day 7- 8





Full morning in the field. The soldiers will repeat the previous days lesson about room clearing but now they will need to do it in a multi room three story building with actors playing combatants and civilians. The soldiers will be using multiple integrated laser engagement system MILES rifles, as will combatants.





In the Classroom


The will review footage of the room clearing exercises from the morning.





Donning night vision goggles, they will repeat the mornings room clearing exercises and do it in the dark. This will be the last time they practice room clearing techniques without have actors stand in as either combatants or civilians.





Day 9-10





Tactical shooting. The students will learnDynamic drills using handguns and assault rifle (if using handguns) and Tactically moving within a crowd & engaging various targets. They will also learn how to use cover while shooting: left, right, above, below. They will practice corridor movement


Corridor movement, Stairwell movement and shooting & clearing.





In the classroom


Students will begin to learn about Rapid Advance Movements how to take a town or section of a city employing ground and air assets. Tomorrow they will begin to assault the town using all of the courses previously taught material.





In the field students will learn procedures for drawing weapons and quick recovery from weapon jams. They will learn to shoot while in motion (running, walking), and at moving targets.


Shooting in low visibility (smoke, fire, fog, darkness) and shooting while injured and disoriented. They will also lear how to evacuate wounded.





Day 11- Attack Day





Several platoons will attack the mock up village of 8 3 story apartment buildings plus a smattering of one level houses, using 2 APC’s as cover and fire support. They will be up against a 21 man platoon of spec ops and also there will be civilians both friendly and hostile to deal with.





The attack will begin at dawn and soldiers will be judged how well they coordinate air and artillery support, release or take some civilian hostages, how many combatants they kill, and most importantly, how many of them complete the attack alive. There will designated instructors watching and grading the soldiers movements and the entire attack will be filmed by the the cameras outside, in the rooms and the corridors of the apartments and streets.





In the classroom


Individual platoons will go over with their instructors the lessons of the day’s events and how to improve on them for tomorrow’s final battle.





Day 12 - Full Day Attack





the platoons will take turn attacking the town against the spec op platoon, who now will also be receiving reinforced by as much as another platoon and air support. At the beginning of the day the spec soldiers hold all 8 buildings and 3 one story houses.





The winner will be declared when either force has gained a hold of all buildings or all enemy combatants or attacking soldiers are dead.





At the end of the train session all soldiers will gather in the mess hall for a final celebratory dinner and awards will be handed out.





Airborne School -





This five week course, also known as Basic Airborne Course, teaches Soldiers the techniques involved in parachuting from airplanes and landing safely. The final test includes a non-assisted jump.





Week 1 - Physical Test Week





Soldiers will be tested through a series of 5k and 10k runs. Full gear. They will be marched full gear through 20 km night marches in under 5 hours. They will be run ragged through obstacle courses and do push up and pull up tests. They must do 40 push ups in under a minute. They must do 60 sit ups in a minute. They must be able to achieve 10 pull ups. There will be psychological testing as well. Military doctors will find out who is willing to jump out of a perfectly good airplane. Those that test out will be sent back to their units.





Week 2 - Ground Week





The Ground Week Airborne instruction begins with an intensive program of instruction to build individual Airborne skills. These skills prepare the Soldier to make a parachute jump and land safely. Students train on the mock door, the 34-foot tower and the lateral drift apparatus. Mock door training will be done 2 meters off the ground. The goal of the training is to learn to listen to the jumpmaster at high altitude and follow directions, mostly the green and and red jump lights. Speakers will be playing at 110 decibels the sound of the wind. It is most important during this time period that soldiers learn the, "soft fall." They will also be taught to harness their parachutes and equipment following a jump. SCO's will learn to take commands from a radio and act on any intelligence ot threat the company has observed since the jump.








Week 3 - Tower Week





Tower Week completes the Soldier's individual skill training and further builds team effort skills. To go forward to Jump Week, Soldiers must qualify on the Swing Lander Trainer (SLT), master the mass exit procedures from the 34-foot tower, gain canopy confidence and learn how to manipulate the parachute from the 250-foot tower, and pass all physical training requirements. Soldiers will be tested and graded following each jump. They must pass 30 successful jumps before they are even considered for Jump Week. Soldiers will still be tested on their ability to harness their parachute and employ their weapons. Small targets will be set up up across the LZ for soldiers to engage.





Week 4 - Jump Week





Successful completion of the previous weeks of training prepares Soldiers for Jump Week. During Jump Week, Soldiers must successfully complete five jumps at 1,250 feet from an Embraer E175-E2. All must be solo.





Week 5 - Jump Week + 1





Soldiers will jump in platoon-sized squads from multiple Embraer E175-E2’s. Soldiers will learn to disassemble their parachute gear and quickly get into battle mode with weapons ready. They will learn to coordinate attacks with support squads like APV’s, helicopters and Mortar teams. The first day they will be taught to attack an airfield. The next they will march 3km to a village and use MOUT training skills and attack it. They will continue the cycle for the next four days, sleeping in the field and then waking up to get back into their perfectly good planes. Paratroopers who successfully meet course requirements are granted an additional skill identifier and are authorized to wear the coveted "Silver Wing" on their uniform.





Jungle Warfare Training -





Week #1 Acclimation - The first week will be used to acclimate the soldiers to the climate, terrain, and environment of the jungle. The soldiers will have class room instruction in identifying potentially dangerous animals, including snakes, crocs, leeches, and mosquitoes. Soldiers will be trained to treat snake bites, basic medical care for malaria and how to get rid of leeches.





Soldiers will learn the effects of dehydration, heat exhaustion and dysentery.. Soldiers will also be trained on what is edible and what is not. They will learn how to to cook and prepare meals out in the field (wild boar, croc, snake). They will be instructed in how hygiene can make the difference between life and death in the jungle.





Week#1 - Cont'd





In the field the soldiers will take marches of 10, 15 and 20km in alternating days. The soldiers will learn how to utilize a compass and maps for navigation. They will be taught techniques in how to keep their weapons usable in torrential rainstorms. They will learn how to mark trails. They will learn basic communication techniques.





They will learn how to construct waterproof tents or hammocks and how to live in the field. On the last night of the first week, they will don night vision goggles and take a 10km hike in the jungle.





WeeK#2 - Characteristics and use of Equipment





Troops will learn to use ropes and knots and types of ropes. They will learn how to maintain their nylon rope. They will learn knot tying terms.





Troops will learn how to move down hills and cliffs. They will learn


rappelling which will involve sliding down a rope which has been


anchored around a firm object (anchor point)such as a tree, projecting rock, or piton.





For endurance training soldiers will continue the rotation of 10, 15 and 20 km marches in full equipment. The 15km march will be held at night using night vision goggles.





Week#3 - Tactical Operations





Goals:
Soldiers should be familiar with the appropriate level of basic tactics in reconnisscance, surveillance and security operations.





Soldiers will be trained to to work in squad sized patrols to not engage the enemy but rather track it by using natural terrain concealment learned in week#2. Troops will also conduct night patrols using night vision goggles whilst remaining hidden from the enemy.





Troops will practice Reconnoissance by fire techniques such as calling in airstrikes or employing helicopter attacks or direct fire support from howitzers or MLRS's. The troops will learn to exploit enemy gaps or flanks and attack them in earnest.





Week#4 -





Goals: Familiarity with Jungle Offensive Operations





In the field
the troops will be taught how when marching in single or multiple columns to exploit contact with the enemy by vanquishing their foe with overwhelming fire power. They will be taught how to disengage from a marching formation into an assault position without delay. Security elements will learn how to protect the rear and flanks and thwart an enemy counterattack.





Troops, using MILES weapons will take turns either being the troops on assault or the troops being ambushed. This will test the ingenuity of the squads being ambushed as proper defensive techniques have not been taught as of yet.





Troops will learn to call in artillery, air assault helicopters or TACAIR support to cut off enemy retreats.





For conditioning the troops will still be required to march 10km per day in full gear with at least one march to be at night. they will also spend this week at night in the field sleeping in tents, hammocks or improvised shelter based on the commands of the officers.





This week they will also be forced to forage for their own food, using techniques they have learned on what is edible or not and how to prepare freshly killed animals.





Week#4 - CONT'D - Familiarity with Defensive Operations





Goals:






Troops will learn in the field the circular defensive position and how to maximize the advantage of terrain. The platoons will learn the clock technique. This involves the platoon using the direction of movement as 12 o’clock, with one squad occupying from 8 to 12, one squad occupying from 8 to 4, and the last squad occupying


from 4 to 12.





Troops will learn how to dig firing positions. They will learn how to camouflage firing positions. They will learn how to repel frontal flanking or rear attacks.





For the last two nights of camp, they will either be in the fox holes defending them against enemy attacks or they will take part in ambushes against a moving enemy.
