Advanced Combat Shooting Course

Australian Army special forces soldiers used innovative teaching techniques to pass on world’s best advanced combat shooting skills to regular infantry soldiers during a prototype training course at Majura training area outside Canberra from 6 November to 10 December 2016.

Over the previous five-to-10 years, Special Air Service Regiment (SASR) instructors developed innovative teaching techniques to ensure new SASR soldiers were quickly taught the latest combat shooting skills and techniques.

 

The new prototype training course fused these innovative teaching techniques with the latest shooting range technologies to provide regular infantry soldiers with a near-real immersive combat environment to learn and later pass on the advanced combat shooting skills.

After the course, it was planned for the regular infantry soldiers to take these innovative teaching and combat-shooting skills back to the School of Infantry and to their infantry-battalion training positions to further impart the knowledge.

The prototype combat shooting skills course was another innovation trialled by Major General ‘Gus’ McLachlan as Head of Army’s Modernisation and Strategic Planning within Army Headquarters.

Another aspect of this innovation was covered in “New combat-shooting philosophy sweeps through Australian Army” – here.
