The website declares there are 22 metal targets. If these 3 large intricate composite objects are what they are talking about, there appear to be a
lot more than that number. An old tank or two, or misc. equipment I can understand as targets for practice but these objects which have been there
since at least 5/2006 appear to be pristine with no damage or disorder.
If I were the military and wanted to keep a bombing range off limits and secure why would I describe in detail the targets and uses of the various
ranges on a web site? Is Homeland Security that comfortable with that amount of information available to the public?
Sorry for taking so long to respond, as I do have a life outside of ATS
Anyways, in regards to their being more than 22 targets... I doubt the
website is updated all that often. As for the strange layout of the targets... I really can't say. Perhaps the shape is very specific to test
calibrated equipment such as targeting, etc. As for why the ranges are off limits but pictures are easily available online as well as what the ranges
are for; the ranges are offlimits because they are live ordnance ranges. We wouldn't want some hiker walking into a live range now would we?
The military does all sorts of things that don't really make sense. I had to go around the ITC at Camp Fallujah and pick up rocks w/ some fellow
Marines. Why? Busy work
So just becuase something looks strange, out of place, etc. doesn't make it extraordinary. Just...strange.
Anyways, sorry for my ramblings. I don't think its anything extra special. Just strange. Believe what you will
