As training for the Green Berets and Rangers aims to have members master the basics, Army special operators shift from trying to inhabit secure bases to practicing survival in large-scale combat. USASOC leaders started carrying out the new plan this last week and expressed their desire to incorporate cyber and information warfare into all aspects of training. On the flip side, special operators have to be able to carry out missions when technology is unavailable, or in the case that communications are hacked into. The last few years have seen the Army preparing for conflicts in the Middle East, but now they prepare for threats from Russia and China. In a statement, the strategy will ensure that basic land navigation and battlefield maneuvering skills are polished while adding onto those skills to prepare for rapidly changing technological warfare.
