Camp Croft, South Carolina
US Army Infantry Replacement Training Center

The Combat Courses contained a series of problems soldiers had to negotiate including a village, trenchworks, and an obstacle strewn battlefield complete with mock tank. These courses included the Fit to Fight and Infiltration courses among others.

One of the more unique facilities at Croft was the full scale mock landing ship.  Soldiers were required to descend, with complete pack and weapon, from the deck of the "ship" via a cargo net to a landing craft below.
