The U.S. Army Asymmetric Warfare Group hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the completion of its Asymmetric Warfare Training Center Jan. 24 at Fort A.P. Hill. Participants included State and local officials from Virginia, representatives from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Training and Doctrine Command, and various others who attended to witness the historic event. The state-of-the-art facility provides a location for the AWG to replicate complex operational environments and develop solutions—which includes exploring adaptive tactics, techniques and procedures.

  • The U.S. Army Asymmetric Warfare Group, an operational unit under the Training and Doctrine Command, construct two forms of subterranean facilities at Fort A.P. Hill in order to assist Soldiers in developing adaptive traits and in preparing them to conduct operations within this environment.
  • Members of the U.S. Army Asymmetric Warfare Group build adaptive and resilient Soldiers through a series of subterranean events at Fort Meade, Md., while looking at solutions and developing tactics, techniques and procedures for problem sets within this complex environment. During this event, the AWG demonstrates how low cost home station training, re-purposing equipment and facilities and other alternatives can be used to simulate, train and building confidence within operating in a subterranean environment.
  • Members of the U.S. Army Asymmetric Warfare Group conducted a Risk Reductions Exercise at Fort A.P. Hill and at the Center for National Response in Gallagher, W.V., from Sep. 3-14 in order to prepare Soldiers from the Brigade Modernization Command for their upcoming participation in a subterranean assessment at the Network Integration Evaluation 14.1, scheduled as a distributive test event in November. During the exercise, Soldiers from Company B, 1st Battalion, 6th Infantry Regiment, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Armored Division were put through various scenarios in order to better prepare them on how to conduct operations within a subterranean environment. Additionally, the AWG identified capability gaps during the exercise and mentored Soldiers in developing techniques to reduce the gaps. AWG’s overall end state for the exercise is to develop an Army Techniques Publication on subterranean warfare for the force, which currently does not exist. The end state for the exercise was to develop technique solutions to capability gaps with respect to subterranean operation identified during NIE 13.2. Available in High Definition.
  • Members of the U.S. Army Asymmetric Warfare Group conduct a variety of training events to simulate operating within a subterranean environment. The overall concept of the training, hosted by the AWG's Able Squadron, was to simulate the complex environment, and train and or refresh unit members on negotiating multiple obstacles that a Soldier might face in a subterranean environment. Each week, the operational squadron conducts a complex training event that creatively utilizes home station facilities and equipment to get at the subterranean problem set. These training events assess, develop and validate various tactics, techniques and procedures regarding subterranean operations, while building adaptability and resiliency within soldiers. The AWG operates as the Training and Doctrine Command's operational arm.
