$170 Million Mock City Rises at Marine Base
A mock city roughly the size of downtown San Diego has risen in a remote Southern California desert to train military forces to fight in urban environments.
The $170 million urban training center was unveiled Tuesday at the Twentynine Palms military base, 170 miles northeast of San Diego.
The 1,560-building facility will allow troops to practice and refine skills that can be used around the world, the Marine Corps said.'
