Abstract : This paper reviews recently developed training devices and techniques used by the Warsaw Pact Countries (WPC) to improve the combat readiness and effectiveness of their ground forces. Most of these devices are relatively simple straightforward, and tailored to the tactical doctrine of the Warsaw Pact forces; however, Soviet literature has recently mentioned the use of laser simulation equipment as a training device for gunnery training. The use of mockups and of special simulation equipment and techniques is emphasized, particularly in tank-gunnery, chemical-biological-radiological, and air-mobile-troop training. (Author)
