Dinovian Forces, depicted by Soldiers from the 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment, advance through the city of Razish at the National Training Center March 17. The Dinovian Forces are used during the Decisive Action Training Environment to provide a greater sense of realism during training.

Many people are not aware of the war between the countries of Donovia and Atropia over the border city of Razish, and for good reason — it’s not real. The countries aren’t real and the battles are only a training simulation. But no matter how simulated the combat is, the outcome of the fighting will have a major impact on the future of the Army.

 

The conflict over the city of Razish was part of the Decisive Action rotation at the National Training Center March 10-23.  It featured a hybrid threat of guerrilla fighters, insurgents, criminal elements and conventional forces which allowed Soldiers to fully prepare for the conflicts of the future.

 

The fictitious countries of Donovia and Atropia are based in the Caucasus region between Europe and Asia.  When Donovia invades and seizes the city of Razish, it causes a disruption in the area’s export of hydrocarbon resources.  In training scenarios, the rotational training unit must assist Atropia to restore stability to the region and protect the interests of the United States to make the conflict as realistic as possible. The RTU is faced with political problems, military conflicts, economic concerns, social issues, and environmental factors within the Decisive Action training environment.

Donovian forces are depicted by Soldiers from the 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment, which also allows senior trainers to direct and react to the training environment to ensure the best development of the RTU. This unique mission is vital to the readiness of the Army because it provides the most capable and lethal combined opposing force possible.
