Training noise will remain a constant at Fort Riley, at least into the summer.
Army officials have confirmed an uptick in gunnery training will continue as the 1st and 2nd Armored Brigade Combat Teams take to the field to hone live-fire skills. From now through June soldiers will train on weapons systems such as the Abrams tank, Bradley Fighting Vehicle and Paladin self-propelled howitzer.
The training is said to be designed to hone the skills of vehicle crews and validate their ability to shoot, move and communicate effectively.
Communities surrounding Fort Riley can expect to hear training noise now through June at various times during the day and night, from small-arms fire to artillery and demolitions.
