VBS2 to become a new training tool in the US Army

Today, an article posted at stripes.com has revealed that VBS2â„¢ is to become a new training simulator game to be used in the US Army, dubbed "Game After Ambush", that will allow soldiers to drive virtual vehicles, fire virtual weapons and pilot virtual unmanned aerial vehicles in combat situations. The contract for "Game After Ambush" was awarded late last month to software developers Laser Shot , of Texas, Bohemia Interactive, of the Czech Republic, and Australia-based Calytrix Technologies .

In VBS2â„¢, the latest military grade training program based on Bohemia Interactive's computer games, participants operate as virtual entities that may use personal weapons, drive vehicles, operate weapons stations, fly aircraft and even board and pilot ships. Any weapon platform or sensor, from UAVs and ground surveillance radar through to artillery can be modeled to varying degrees of fidelity in the flexible VBS2â„¢ game engine
