They went to the trouble of putting power poles or street lights up on some roads.

Not a sign...
Looks to me like they are funnelling traffic through that point, which means it is likely designed to have a guard or two in it, over the roadway.

If it is an urban combat training facility, it could well have a complete sewer system too, saw some mad stuff back in the cadets.

It looks like a training town to me too. Probably for training of recon or bomb runs?

That is the old set of "Apollo 11; We made it..." The folks even got cancer from the radiation...

A high end duplex or trailer court living area?

...with a sign?

Yes this is correct as far as coordinates go.
You are looking at a mock set'up . Military training towns, and Nevada is ripe with them.👍


Good find by the way..


Edit: take Notice that this resides in the NELLIS AIR FORCE RANGE....

I don’t know what you have found, but it’s hot! That’s definitely a military compound. The area to the north-east, just east of the long, inverted L shape, looks like a well guarded warhead storage area. The base looks to be very active to me.

I don't think it is for ground forces even AF; at least in my limited experience if it was for example an Army live fire or training set then there would be more 'interact-able' material like blown out cars, more cover/concrete etc vs such wide open spaces.

that's a good point RE airborne troops. Just the lay-out to me though looks like it would be for extremely simple drops if it was used with paratroops etc, at all. Cool find tho.

I bet in some desert somewhere you will find a little town laid out just like that. Maybe Somalia

It's a dope on a rope training mockup.

Bomb targets?

Pictured, if I got it right, is the Military Range chart of the Nellis Ranges, your target is in Range 62, between The Three Lakes Reservoir and the Dogbone Lake Gunnery and Bombing Range, which might be part of the latter.

So I've been using the USGS Satellite images to search around a bit because they seem more detailed then Google's it's more dificult to tell where exactly you are so when I find something interesting I'll google the coords , Lots of lost and abandoned stuff out there in the desert , I came across this , it's a bit puzzling maybe some wacko just messing around in the middle of nowhere but would like to find some info on it . Coords are 36.781N 115.444W

Clark County NV.


That's "Gotham City", an urban warfare training center located in the NTTR. I took pictures of some of it, from a trail that goes north/south to the east of this facility. It's in my video here:

Gotham City"/Urban Operations Center
The UOC, nicknamed Gotham City, is a one-square mile facility that consists of the main "city center", an airfield and a military compound located among the nearly three million acres of the NTTR. It was designed to meet numerous training requirements, and it provides realistic urban warfare training and mission feedback systems for all U.S. and Allied forces.

Interesting view, everything is fairly nondescript but most of those building's appear to be prefab's made using large shipping type containers of various sizes, some look like field laboratory set up's, a canteen is fairly obvious and office space as well as barrack's, there is even a possible small radar dome atop a square structure surrounded by five medium sized shipping containers.

Likely everything is modular and this entire base if that is what it is can relocate very fast if needed or even be packed up and stored underground with very few of those structures appearing to be in any way permanent one's.

The two Y shaped configurations look to be field laboratory's to me but rather more extensive than simple one's, each of the three wing's of each of these complex appear to be made of eight shipping containers creating a large work space for whatever they are up to there.

A rapidly deploy-able and equally rapidly removable facility of some kind, given the nature of research carried out on the site not that surprising.

Interesting nonetheless.

There's really no substitute for ingress/egress in like situations. Whether that's just dropping iron or a combined arms activity, seeing what the real thing (even if it's just shipping containers playing the part) looks like in the dark or dusk and from an angle that isn't a ground-level photo or overhead imagery and being able to rehearse is pretty invaluable. Try finding your specific building, LZ, target, etc while coming in on an MH-60 in the dark at treetop level or from a few hundred feet at several hundred knots in a fighter cockpit-- even if you think you have a map memorized in your head. Identifying landmarks and not getting disoriented while humming around fast and low isn't a naturally honed ability.


Now, it could simply be a generic compound/village. But they're basically made to order. The sites that represent real targets of interest generally aren't captured by overhead imagery. You put it together, do your business, and then tear it all down ASAP.
