I find this interesting. I just wonder who they think will engage them in "large-unit" engagements. Although I do not agree with with the majority of this country's budget used for the military I acknowledge we can and should be able to beat anyone out there in open engagements.
Window-rattling shellfire on Fort Carson's training range will be heard more often in the future as the Army shifts its training goals back to large-unit operations with artillery, armor and helicopter support. "Our training is shifting away from counter-insurgency and back into more direct action,"
I occasionally can actually hear explosions from Fort Carson maybe 45 away as the crow flies. Then there is the Pinyon Canyon(and they want much more) training site not too far to the SE. There is a fair amount of military air traffic and vehicles on the interstate going to and from these two places. I do enjoy seeing big planes flying low btw.
This fellow in the article goes on to say - "We're going to be noisier in the future,". I say kiss my ass you smug bastard!
