The Marine Corps will soon build a state-of-the-art facility to better visualize the threat environment, gain competitive advantages and simulate future operating environments.

The center is expected to break ground in fiscal year 2021 and will be uniquely designed to leverage modern simulation technologies to enhance the wargaming experience for Marines. Once complete, the Marine Corps Wargaming and Analysis Center will enable better equipped and trained Marines, and improved decision-making on the battlefield.

Located aboard Marine Corps Base Quantico, Virginia, the 100,000-square-foot facility is expected to house more than a dozen wargames each year, including two large-scale, 250-person exercises. Simulations will offer a realistic representation of future operating environments.

"In order to stay ahead of peer competitors, it is vital that the Marine Corps conduct constant wargames," said Lt. Gen. Eric Smith, deputy commandant, Combat Development and Integration. "The data that comes from such wargames enables us to more rapidly determine which capabilities we will need for future fights."

During the Infantry Officers Course at Quantico, brand new Marine infantry officers spent many hours around the wargaming table. using 1/285th micro armor. That was in 1986-87. Had been going it for years prior. It was state of the art then. This in nothing new, unless the Corps got away from it.
