Thales to upgrade Finnish Leopard 2 simulators

11th September 2019 - 09:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Thales has announced that it has received a contract from the Finnish Defence Forces to upgrade its Leopard 2A6FIN main battle tank simulators. The contract was signed at the end of June.

The upgraded simulators will incorporate advanced virtual and multilevel simulation technologies to provide both technical instruction for crewmembers and tactical training at platoon level.

The instructor station is designed to supervise up to four exercises at the same time, with up to four vehicles taking part in each exercise. The simulation includes a high-fidelity turret with gunner and commander stations, a co-located driver position and a simulated ammunition loader function.

Thales said the contract is a success for its new AFV Core range of armoured fighting vehicle simulation solutions, which feature open, high-reliability, scalable architecture and synthetic environment compliant with the latest international standards.
