Chevy x Delta Force

Chevy x Delta Force

We spent a day at The Range Complex getting to know some our country’s finest, veterans of the U.S. Army’s elite Delta Force unit. We were given just a taste of how they train, and how their Tahoes and Suburbans provide the ideal transportation for their dangerous missions.

Chevy x Delta ForceAs we made our way through small town North Carolina en route to our training, we felt like a presidential convoy in our fleet of black Tahoes.

Chevy x Delta ForceOur approach to The Range Complex felt even more special and secretive, as part of the first ever group of media invited to the elite training facility, owned and operated by veterans. Members of the public, military, and law enforcement train at this 1900-acre facility to keep their skills sharp.

Chevy x Delta ForceDelta Force operators must be able to perform all of their tasks under extreme stress, and having a reliable, predictable, and safe vehicle like this Chevy Suburban reduce variables, and help them swiftly move away from danger.

Chevy x Delta ForceWe were given the rare opportunity to witness Delta Force operators conducting a live-fire training exercise, in which they rapidly breached, cleared, and vacated a structure, a regular task for the elite Army team on counterterrorism and hostage rescue missions.

Chevy x Delta ForceFor our nighttime training exercises, our Tahoes were equipped with infrared LED light bars to provide illumination not visible to the naked eye.

Chevy x Delta ForceInfrared and thermal imaging goggles like these are a mainstay of Delta Force operators to help provide stealth and safety during nighttime missions.

Chevy x Delta ForceOur training concluded behind the wheel as we drove off into complete country darkness. The infrared goggles certainly helped guide our way, but offered a limited a field of view and poor depth perception. Despite the limitations, Delta Force operators must often drive at high speeds, and in unknown areas while wearing such equipment, all while potentially under fire from enemies.

Chevy x Delta ForceWe'd like to offer our sincere thanks to Chevrolet, The Range Complex for this unique opportunity, and especially to the men and women of the U.S. Army, and its Delta Force unit for risking life and limb to help protect our country and our freedom.
