Intelligent training adversary will add a layer of tactical performance analysis to the SmartFacility currently operated by the British Army.

Immersive close combat training technology company 4GD has been awarded a contract to supply its SimStriker smart urban warfare training target to the British Army’s 16 Air Assault Brigade in Colchester.

The British Army will receive ten smart targets, marking the first delivery of SimStriker by 4GD.
