Since this doesn't involve Groom or the related ranges it apparently was missed. Early in September the Navy announced they want to at least triple the size of the range at NAS Fallon. Their reasoning is that new aircraft and equipment need more room to train, and they can't get the most out of the current range.

The current range covers 202,859 acres. The Navy wants to renew that acreage, and expand it to 604,789 acres, or 1262 square miles.

FALLON, Nev. (KOLO)-- The Fallon Naval Air Station will increase public land used for training by about four times to about 1,262 square miles under a proposal released this week.

The U.S. Navy is asking for an additional 604,789 acres and to renew the use of 202,859 acres. It scheduled seven meetings in Nevada to discuss the proposal, including Oct. 3 in Fallon and Oct. 4 in Reno.

The Navy said it began reviewing its training ability at the Fallon Naval Air Station in 2014.

“The analysis showed that the size of the Fallon Ranges severely restricts the types of weapons that can be used, which limits training realism and effectiveness,” it wrote. “These limitations leave aircrews and special operations forces unable to fully train, compromising their safety and success in combat.”
