Close Quarters Combat Training Facility

La Posta Miser Station, Pine Valley, CA

Flexible design mimics real world scenarios for better firearms training

In need of a set of multipurpose firearms and training spaces that mimic actual conditions, SOCSOUTH partnered with Clark Nexsen to design the P-781 Close Quarters Combat Training Facility. Providing live fire and operational training facilities for the Naval Special Warfare operators, the facility encompasses three components: a partial two-story Close Quarters Combat Trainer (20,000 SF); a two-story Method of Entry House (6,000 SF); and a Residence Compound (6,000 SF) in two separate, multi-story buildings.

Close Quarters Combat Trainer

Designed for flexibility, this live fire training facility includes separate training zones that allow for multiple, simultaneous training venues with the ability to be reconfigured for a single training exercise. With a layout that mimics actual battlefield conditions, the facility includes catwalks for instructor observation and features ballistic walls, a ballistic roof system, internal ballistic partitions, ballistic sliding windows, exterior breachable doors and multiple stair configurations for training variation. Natural ventilation is augmented with a powered ventilation system to remove contaminants.

Method of Entry (MOE) House

Intended to improve wall, window and door breaching skills through training, the MOE House is comprised of multiple breaching points, including breaching from the roof. Externally, the building includes a stairwell with a balcony, a ladder from the balcony to the roof, a roof access hatch, and rappel points from the roof.

Residence Compound

With an emphasis on recreating actual battlefield conditions, the Residence Compound includes two residential buildings used for “Force-on-Force” training. With furnishings that simulate a typical residence, the training experience mirrors the practical environment. The ammunition used in these facilities is Non-Lethal Training Ammunition (NLTA).
