Summary

Rifle Qualification in AIT

Rifle Qualification in AIT

The Training Challenge:Provide soldiers combat critical reinforcement training in rifle handling and marksmanship.

The Logistical Challenges:

Provide the training when ranges, rifles, and ammunition are all in short supply.

Provide the training to soldiers who are not at locations with training ranges available.

Conduct long range planning to institutionalize this training and support it

slide4

Rifle Qualification in AIT

Three Types of AIT Student Considered:

  • Students whose AIT is less than 8 weeks in length – no additional rifle training needed in addition to BRM in BT.
  • AIT from 8 to 16 weeks need some type of familiarization or instructional firing (new term) prior to graduation.
  • Students in AIT 17 weeks and longer need to qualify again.
slide5

Assumptions

  • Resource Constrained Environment
  • AIT Sites Will Not Move Because of This Requirement
  • Supporting TADSS Not Available At Many Sites
  • Training Approach Will Be Modified as TADSS Become Available
slide6
The Requirement is about 60,000 Soldiers to Shoot in AIT Who Do Not Shoot in AIT Now

The Resource Bill is Varied and Involves only a few Expendable Supplies, But Requires Personnel, Durable/Non Expendable Supplies and Transportation

Training Facilities and Land

Some TRADOC AIT Sites w/Ranges Need More Lanes now – Gordon and Eustis

Some Non TRADOC Sites Need Ranges in Future Due To Load – APG and RSA

Some TADDS Will Bring a Facilities Bill

Long Lead Time for Most MCA

Arms Rooms – Both New and Enlarged With Security Upgrades

Training Facilities and Land MCA
training facilities and land ranges
Even If Available, May Not Have Capacity - Training Load at Eustis Diverts Some to AP Hill – Now!

Use of NG Ranges Key But- Priorities, Summer Surge, State Missions?

Training needs to be near graduation for max retention after AIT – time delay factor

Training Facilities and Land Ranges
training facilities and land ranges13
Not Available on Navy/AF AIT Sites: Sheppard, Eglin, and Goodfellow AFBs; Panama City, Pensacola, Norfolk, and Biloxi Navy sites

Not Available on Some Army Posts With AIT: APG, RSA, Meade, Monterey

TRADOC Sites Have Ranges but Availability is ?

Shelby, Roberts, Blanding Could Support but NG Range Availability During Summer ADT is Doubtful

Travel Time – Goodfellow in San Angelo is 4 hrs from Sam Houston and From Killeen

- No Quantity Buy for TRADOC – Yet

- Requires Soldier’s Rifle for Use

- Requires no Additional MCA

- Flexible: Individual Marksmanship, Collective/Crew/Served, and ROE Training

- Large Buy Army-Wide But Not Many Avail NOW

- MCA Impacts

- Not Used by Navy or AF at AIT Sites

  • Ammunition
  • Rifles

  • An “Expendable” Item Of Real Concern
  • Required in at Least Some Quantity to Meet CSA Vision and Ensure Realism
  • Tremendous Shortfalls at Present
  • Training Devices Reduce But Do Not Eliminate Requirement For Live Fire

Ammunition for Instructional Firing (For AIT 8 to 16 Weeks)

- Assume TADSS not Available at Most Sites

- No Defined Program for “Instructional” Firing

- One Course of Action:

-- Some PMI (Load-Unload-Clear-Clean, Review Marksmanship Basics)

-- 18 Rounds Grouping/Zero Combined

-- 18 Rounds Field Fire Table 2 (Single Target, 8 Engagements – 5/175/300m)

Bill = 1.6 M Rounds 5.56mm a year

Training ServicesAmmunition Requirements

  • Possible Longer (17 wks +) AIT Course of Action:

- 18 rds to zero plus

- 80 rds for a record qualification shoot.

  • Ammo Bill = 4 M rds of 5.56mm. 27 more rounds w/o EST 2000.

  • Different approaches possible
  • Increased TADSS Availability Will Help
  • Do Not Reduce Ammo For Live Fire

Information Needed
rifle qualification in ait31
Summary

Bill for ammo, rifles and ranges will be big

Use of TADSS can reduce bill for ammo and can reduce other costs to include targetry, transportation, additional personnel, maintenance supplies and spares

LMTS for AIT sites not in current buy

Cost-Benefit analysis needed to determine Best Approach to AIT qualification requirement

AND WE HAVEN’T LOOKED HARD AT TIME REQUIREMENTS

Rifle Qualification in AIT

A Numbers Check:

45K AIT Students in AIT from 8 to 16 Weeks – Annual Training Requirement

13K in AIT lasting at least 17 Weeks

12 AIT Locations have Qualification Ranges, 12 Do Not (Mostly AF, Navy, APG, RSA)

10 of The Sites With Ranges are TRADOC installations, Two are not (MEDCOM [Ft Sam], FORSCOM [Ft Bragg])

Rifle Qualification in AITAmmunition COAs

Look at Different COAs:

COA #1. (No TADSS)

  • Shorter AIT gets 18 rds to Zero, and 20 rds for an “instructional” practice shoot.
  • Longer AIT gets 18 rds to zero plus 40 rds for a record qualification shoot. Ammo Bill = 2.4 M rds of 5.56mm
slide37

Rifle Qualification in AITAmmunition COAs

COA #2. FM 3-22.9 (W/EST 2000)

  • Shorter AIT gets 18 rds to Zero, and 40 rds for an “instructional” practice shoot.
  • Longer AIT gets 18 rds to zero plus 80 rds for a record qualification shoot. Ammo Bill = 4 M rds of 5.56mm. 27 more rounds w/o EST 2000.
rifle qualification in ait ammunition coas
COA #3. TADSS are used, EST 2000

Assumes 6 rds saved on Zero and 6 rds on practice and record shoot compared to COA#1

Shorter AIT gets 12 rds to Zero, and 14 rds for an “instructional” practice shoot.

Longer AIT gets 12 rds to zero plus 34 rds for a record qualification shoot. Ammo Bill = 1.9 M rds of 5.56mm

40 Hours of Training Time (+/-)

Rifle Qualification in AITAmmunition COAs
recommendation
Assume EST 2000 and LMTS not available Near Term

Students in AIT Lasting 8 to 16 Weeks get 18 Rounds to Zero and 40 Rounds to Fire Practice Qualification or Field Fire – Depending on What is Available

Students in AIT Over 16 Weeks get 18 Rounds to Zero and 80 Rounds for a Practice and a Record Fire – if Ammo Available

Work Out Resource Bill for Transport, MCA Impacts, Supplies

Plan on Ammo Reduction and Modification to this COA as EST 2000 is Fielded (More TADSS, less but still some, ammo)

Recommendation
