Atterbury-Muscatatuck goes beyond the reqirements of TC 25-8 and TC 90-1.
The Muscatatuck Urban Training Center (MUTC) was developed in conjunction with the State of Indiana as a large urban training site that leveraged existing masonry buildings, and which supports Camp Atterbury urban training requirements, while also providing a unique training venue for other Army units, DoD exercises, and Federal agencies.
The Army urban training facility strategy uses a general framework to validate and program when and where facilities are built. The fielding framework is outlined by five stationing-based goals:
1. one Combined Arms Collective Training Facility (CACTF) at each home-station that supports one or more brigade combat team,
2. one Shoot House for each Brigade Combat Team (BCT),
3. one CACTF and one SH for each Reserve Component (RC) mobilization center,
4. one home-station Urban Assault Course (UAC) for each Brigade Combat Team (BCT),
5. expanded multisite urban training capability for each maneuver Combat Training Center CTC to provide BCT capable exercises.
The Army uses these five fielding guidelines to program urban facilities across a six year programming window. It would not be feasible or affordable to try to construct all the Army’s required urban training facilities in the short term. The Army has been building toward its urban facilities strategic goals since 2000 and the Army anticipates that there will be some number of urban training facilities in each Army MILCON budget proposal through fiscal year 2015.
Army urban training facilities are constructed to meet long term training requirements. Army urban training facilities are not being constructed as a reactionary measure to mimic site specific deployments in Iraq or any other operational region. Army urban training facilities will not be abandoned as the Army operational focus changes.
