The KOFA Firing Range consists of several test areas: the Main Front Area, with 21 permanent firing positions, ammunition storage and preparation, and environmental simulation facilities; the Terminal Ballistics Evaluation Area, with prepared and instrumented impact areas; and the Extended Range Munitions Area, with maximum range attainable of 75,000 meters, with 65,000 meters under tracking surveillance.

The Automatic Weapons and Ammunition Test Ranges provide up to 4,500 meters of direct fire at large variable obliquity armor, cloth, and aluminum-plate targets. The range has horizontal impact areas up to 500 square meters and sod, diced earth, mud, sand, and macadam fuse graze function targets.

Movable firing positions provide complete facilities for test operations, instrumentation, and ammunition conditioning. Any degree of elevation is permitted to ranges of 10,000 meters.

The Tank Accuracy Range features acoustic target scoring for firing on the move; the aided laser tracking system; vibration test systems; a dynamometer test system; an acoustic measuring system; flash x-ray units; and a 32/77 Multistream Super Mini-computer.
