Abstract : The training requirements and the project schedule for the PGS (Platoon Gunnery Simulator) will be presented by the French counterpart of the PM Trade. Then the firm under contract for the design and manufacturer of the PGS will give a more detailed presentation of the equipment, emphasizing the system features: - an equipment unique in its kind, providing combat training in a classroom for the crews of a platoon of tanks - total compliance with ergonomic aspects - extraordinary detail and realism of the landscapes into which are inset up to 8 fixed and/or mobil targets - consistent representation of all the effects of firing (noise, flash, recoil, observation of the shell trajectory) - perfect adaptation to each type of turret - versatile and easy to use for the instructors.
