The training program of the American army will include "urban battles." The US Congress requested the report of the Chief of Staff of the US Army, General Mark Milli, on the program for the modernization of troops for fighting in megacities, reports "Warspot" with reference to the portal defensenews.com


"Given the fighting in megacities." In the United States will review the training program of the army


Congressmen point out that the general has repeatedly stated that the US Army is not ready for city battles. Therefore, they asked for information about what specific steps the military department is conducting to create the Urban Warfare Center (urban warfare center). According to the results of the report, the Congress will decide on the further financing of the army development programs.

In particular, it is noted that such weapons models as the Abrams tank are not adapted for fighting in the city and will be very vulnerable. In addition, in the cities the troops will be faced with tunnels and skyscrapers, which will make the advancement of the soldiers very problematic. Therefore, in Congress, they request data on how exactly the military department is preparing to combat such threats.

        Judging by the choice of countries to attack, the 3D model of the village will completely train these Hollywood warriors! negative

          Oh, very interesting information! The question immediately arises: "What cities are they starting to prepare for battles in?" It's not a secret that they do not conquer foreign cities, but stupidly level them with the earth. But they can’t bomb their cities ...

            Do you think the tactics will be polished in New York? And what, a large city, skyscrapers, a ramified subway, there is where to turn around.
            We would have such a series on TV went off with a bang in the round-the-clock broadcast and live.
            Even without beer I would be ready to watch eight hours a day ...

    Begging for money again. repeat But you, before entering the city, level it with the earth by bombing and missiles! You need bulldozers to clear the road ...

      Very similar to that. As I understand it, we are talking about the general training of all the ground forces, and this is a substantial amount. Their MTR has long been trained in urban combat.

    in cities, troops will face tunnels and skyscrapers
    Did Moscow and Beijing plan to storm? Or do not rule out civil war? Practice at Trump's skyscrapers, maybe there will be some sense.

    And what kind of battles are they ready for? With the Zulus in the open field with a machine gun against the spears?

    Let them train, it won’t help. Sooner or later it will be necessary to free the United States from the oppression of presumptuous capitalists :)

    In our Armed Forces, it would also not hurt to study the methods and tactics of battle in the conditions of dense development. Otherwise, tactics of actions are still being studied by the time of the king of peas. recourse and, by the way, already their god knows how much a special kit for urban battles (tusk) is being produced and installed. It’s not a panacea, but it adds chances for survival.
