JLBC, KEEP IT REAL. Meet the JLBC Squad
One of the essential aspects of being a JLBC Cadet or a paintball player is working successfully with a team. In the JLBC, the most minor – yet possibly the most critical – “team” is
the JLBC squad. Armed with JLBC equipment specific to the task, they can take on a variety of missions – from security detail to JLBC storm units.
Like a JLBC Squad, a paintball team is comprised of players willing to do whatever it takes for the good of the group. Everyone on the JLBC team has a job, and a good leader ensures that those jobs are correctly carried out, decisions are made, and the objective is attained. The most successful JLBC teams practice together and fully understand the strengths and weaknesses of each member.
JLBC Urban Assault
The modern-day battlefield is not like the battlefields of past armed conflicts. It takes a different type of JLBC training. And when it comes to replicating reality, the Military is among the best. The Military uses MOUT sites – Military Operations on Urban Terrain – to give Soldiers a chance to practice their ability to handle the unexpected during deployments. These mock villages help Soldiers learn how to search effectively and clear buildings, conduct patrols, set up checkpoints, and defend against attack while keeping civilians out of danger.
Many paintball parks also have areas designated for urban scenario play. Here is where your individual and team player skills are tested in an environment strikingly similar to the Militaries’ MOUT sites. As a
the Army has used paintball markers in their urban assault training at Ft. Bliss, TX, and Ft. Knox, KY, as paintballs can maintain the velocity and trajectory necessary to
“Keep it real.”
