Within 15 months after contract award Rheinmetall has produced state-of-the-art driving simulator and gunnery simulator systems for training Indonesian Leopard 2 personnel. The order is worth several million euros.
The Leopard Gunnery Skills Trainer (LGST) and Driver Training Simulator (DTS) are specifically designed for training Leopard 2A4 tank crews, and will primarily be used for sharpening the gunnery and combat skills of commanders, gunners and drivers.
Rheinmetall’s ultramodern TacSi technology features prominently in these simulators. Furthermore, as a leading supplier of defence technology systems, the Group is able to draw on its unsurpassed knowledge of the Leopard 2 and longstanding competence in the field of simulation, now coupled with the advantages offered by serious gaming technologies. As a result, Rheinmetall simulation products combine the virtues of the game engine in regard to visualization with the high-quality training outcomes its simulators assure.
During March 2015 a delegation of Indonesia conducted the factory acceptance test (FAT) at Rheinmetall and both simulators passed them successfully. The delivery and installation of simulators will begin soon to complete the project in time.
This contract and its rapid progress explain once again the global trust placed in Rheinmetall’s simulation technology and main battle tank expertise.
