Soldiers from 2nd Platoon, Company A, 1st Battalion, 35th Armor Regiment, 2nd Heavy Brigade Combat Team, 1st Armored Division, storm a makeshift village filled with role-play enemies during a battalion-sized mission simulating battlefield conditions at White Sands Missile Range, N.M., May 12, 2012. The village exists in the middle of the desert to replicate wartime conditions. Soldiers maneuvered through the village of dozens of buildings, and secured two and even three story structures. The mission was a part of Network Integration Evaluation 12.2, which allows soldiers to test and evaluate equipment under harsh conditions, while providing realistic training.
