Combat Shooting Battle Lane

By The Cove March 24, 2019


Following the success of the Australian Army Skill at Arms Meeting (AASAM) in Puckapunyal, Major General Gus McLachlan, AM, Commander Forces Command wanted to showcase the excellent work and #innovation of our Non-Commissioned Officers in improving the realism, design and training value of our combat shooting ranges.


In this video, Trent Barlin-Butler from Townsville demonstrates how a team of motivated individuals with a good imagination have come together to improve range design and create the combat shooting battle lane. He explains that the range is designed to practice training optimal combat behaviours and shows us how they achieve safety procedures within each of the practices.



If you are looking to improve the quality and realism of your range practices, why not contact the School of Infantry for some advice and ideas.
