Ft. Ord Panorama
The Impossible City
This facility, built in the late 1980s, is used by the FBI and military units for training in urban assault tactics. The name "Impossible City" is derived from the fact that all areas can be easily seen from adjacent buildings and most doors open to a central area. The area is off limits to the general public.
The soldiers are equipped with M15 rifles loaded with blanks and incorporating advanced "Laser Tag" transmitters; receivers on the vests respond when the soldier is hit.
