British Army using Inflatable Walls Training System

28th January 2020 - 09:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The British Army’s 1st Battalion, The Mercian Regiment, has taken delivery of a new training system designed to enhance training for urban operations.

The Inflatable Walls Training System (IWTS) is in the shape of a temporary urban structure, with modular walls which are completely portable to allow personnel to transport and rapidly build temporary structures wherever it suits the training requirement.

Unlike static structures, the inflatable structure can be easily adapted so that personnel don’t get used to the layout of a particular building. The IWTS delivers a simple but effective replication of urban structures enabling soldiers to learn, develop, master, and sustain the individual and collective skills required for the efficient and effective clearance of complex urban structures. 

The IWTS is also compatible and certified for use with Simunition, allowing the army to combine these training aids to optimise training opportunities.

According to the army the IWTS will be rolled out across the Field Army.
