(Capcom's primary storyline)
The Military Training Center on Rockfort Island was constructed to train Umbrella paramilitary units Umbrella Security Service in a location of secrecy, against real B.O.W.s. The facility was administered along with the rest of the island by Alfred Ashford and had been operating for some time before the Rockfort Island incident that would lead to its destruction. The facility's construction was completed on December 8, 1993.[excerpt 1]
The training camp was known to have trained the infamous 'HUNK', only survivor of the U.S.S. Alpha Team sent to retrieve the G-Virus from Raccoon City. HUNK would return to the facility tasked with guarding a B.O.W. capsule sent from Antarctica. HUNK refers to his time at the facility as the "good old days", although he may well have been referring sarcastically to Alfred's notoriously haphazard management.
The facility was built around an abandoned church used by the Spanish settlers on the island, of whom Rodrigo Juan Raval is a descendent. This church would be used for storage as well as to house an elevator to the underground catacombs where the settlers' tombs were kept.
The facility features among other things, a full sized working tank displayed in an outside courtyard (part of Alfred's private collection) a repair garage, underground B.O.W. and virus storage facilities, direct access to the subterranean airport, an industrial cargo elevator and turntable, a large bath house with sauna, administration offices and a sophisticated control room. Because of heavy damage suffered during Wesker's attack, areas of the facility are inaccessible by the time Claire Redfield and Steve Burnside arrive to explore it. Later damage caused by the island's self-destruct sequence leaves the facility heavily damaged but still standing in places. This allows Chris Redfield to move around much of the facility, although the west side is all but completely inaccessible by this time. The facility was later abandoned along with the rest of the island.
There is a German Tiger I tank in the center which hides a secret elevator leading to a hangar.
