New training site for Navy

A new training facility will soon open at CFB Esquimalt for the Royal Canadian Navy’s elite tactical unit.

The simulated combat facility will train members of Canada’s Naval Tactical Operations Group, CTV News reports.

The maritime commandos specialize in clandestine ship-boarding, hand-to-hand combat and tactical shooting for counter-terrorism, anti-trafficking and anti-piracy missions around the world.

“We’re expecting to grow up to a maximum size of about 104 personnel,” Lt.-Cmdr. Will Lund told CTV.

The facility will include a 2,000-square-foot "close quarters battlehouse" that mimics the interior of a vessel.
