The Land Navigation Qualification trains soldiers to plot 8 digit grid points, use the baseplate compass and learn the major, minor and supplementary terrain features. The Land Navigation Qualification does not grant any special equipment.
Land navigation training is an essential component of the US Army Ranger's skillset. During their extensive training, Rangers learn to navigate through unfamiliar terrain using various tools such as maps, compasses, and GPS devices. They must master the art of terrain association, which involves using features such as hills, rivers, and trees to pinpoint their location accurately. Rangers also learn to navigate at night and in adverse weather conditions, including heavy fog and rain. Land navigation training is critical for Rangers, as it allows them to operate effectively in any environment, locate and rescue injured comrades, and complete their mission successfully. The US Army Ranger's rigorous training ensures that they are among the most skilled and capable soldiers in the world.
