In one of the editions of the Sunday Hypnotoads on the REN-TV channel in the Military Secret section, I was surprised to learn that the US Army is rapidly losing its strength and power due to the fact that they actively use various computer training complexes for soldiers. As for me, it’s not at all in the training complexes, but that’s not the point. The bottom line is that at the ARMY-2016 forum there was just a huge hall dedicated to just such complexes.
And all the officers who worked on these complexes, in one voice together spoke about the need for such simulators. Especially for conscripts. For whom is the secret that the current youth comes to the army not from the plow, but from the computer? Yes, for anyone. Accordingly, the result is as follows. One thing "Contra" or "Battlefield", another thing - the real weapon.
The training complex is just such a bridge for the ignorant of life safety in return for the lost CWP. Watched, by the way, this is a shame.
Despite the fact that the forum was on the third day, only a few reached the exhibition of simulators. From the press we were generally the first. You can imagine how we were met there ... As relatives.
Since I was slightly delayed, taking off what was on the street, the responsibilities were distributed by themselves. My partner honestly went through almost all the training complexes, and I took this case. As they say, whoever got up, and automatic machines. Although there were not only machines. And I not only shot.
At the same time with us at the exhibition were three VIP guests, judging by the badges. Obviously effective managers, for they all looked the same: for about 30 years, blue with glitter suit, black shoes and unshaven physiognomy in the style of Ivan Urgant. Understandable type.
So, these gentlemen passed through three complexes cheerfully and fervently and didn’t even get anywhere close to one. Significantly, but obviously, their strength is not in the ability to shoot. And there are, presumably, computer fighters, we have more than enough.
What is the training complex? It's simple. This is a bridge for those who can poke a mouse between a computer and a real weapon. As experts say, if you first teach the basics using a computer, the savings are obvious.
So, let's go.
The first complex was from the country's oldest and most deserved enterprise, TSNIITOCHMASH, which is located in the city of Klimovsk, Moscow Region. Born as a Research Institute of Small Arms aviation (NIISPVA), the institute today is one of the centers for the development and testing of weapons.
The complex is a two-stage system of training shooter. First, on the computer screen, one learns elementary things: how to properly combine the rear sight with the front sight, how to take the lead in the wind, and so on. In accordance with the "Manual on the rifle case."
Everything is quite simple and affordable.
The simulator, as can be seen, allows to take into account such parameters as wind, its strength and direction, humidity. And to issue a list of errors that made the shooter. Next comes the practice with MMG.
This is a shooting stand. "Fire" is carried out on the scaled targets that appear on the screens. Screens can move in both directions at different speeds.
Used MMG is not even quite something MMG. The pneumatic actuator makes it possible to perfectly imitate recoil, distorts the bolt carrier frame and tosses the machine gun. Very realistic.
And after the end of the "shooting" you can disassemble each shot in detail.
PTV-24, Mig-29 simulator from St. Petersburg. Allows you to simulate all the tasks of piloting, navigation and combat use of the MiG-29.
Were further Tanks.
UDS-166, production of the Ural KB transport engineering. Nizhny Tagil.
The simulator allows you to explore all the components and mechanisms of the machine.
And 172. Allows you to learn and learn how to eliminate all possible failures and malfunctions associated with the operation of the automatic loader. As well as carry out maintenance and maintenance work.
And-676 from Kurganmashzavod.
The same as for a tank, only for BMP.
For the training of drivers of armored vehicles.
On the left screen that the driver sees, on the right - the operator.
"Bridge-2000". Production group of companies "Kronstadt".
The simulator is designed for training and practice of calculating the PCG-Shturman. Models the movement of the ship in a changing environment, aimed at solving navigation problems, maneuvering, collision avoidance and everything that the ship’s personnel encounters while sailing.
This is the only complex for classes in which you need to know navigation and other navigational troubles. We could not even lift the anchor, we did not find how. And the calculation of the simulator went to lunch, apparently ...
Maybe someone from the readers, who thinks, in the comments to explain, for what you have to pull?
Not having mastered the sea, we returned to the ground again. The next was a complex with a very long name: "Electronic training simulator for firing training of a reinforced motorized rifle squad" from NPO RusBITech.
This complex is used with might and main in the center of preparation of the MRV in Mulino, near Nizhny Novgorod. Very impressive in color and degree of understanding.
On the simulator you can use all the weapons that are in service with the IES. Grenade launchers, machine guns, sniper rifles. Even ags.
The complex allows you to conduct a study not just on abstract terrain, but to imitate a specific terrain. Any one loaded into the simulator's memory. And create a fight there of a very different nature. My partner, for example, was engaged in a battle with a motorized rifle squad reinforced by two tanks. That did not seem enough.
To begin with, Roman was armed with a grenade launcher and held a short course on use. And then commanded "Fire!" Two tanks took 5 grenades (one snapped). Not bad for the first time.
The infantry was handled with the help of AGS-30.
Also a brief briefing on how to organize the "fork" correctly, a zeroing was carried out, after which the command "Let's runaway!" Was given.
After the shooting is over, you can lose the whole battle and make out mistakes. However, in the video it will be seen better.
And finish the topic of simulators product company "Dynamics". Simulator helicopter Ka-52.
This is how the control panel of the complex looks, which is located outside the simulator. The simulator itself is a huge cylinder, five meters high, inside of which there is a helicopter cabin.
So the operator of the complex monitors the trainees.
And he sees all the evolution of the helicopter.
The environment is provided by several video projectors.
View of the simulator cabin.
I do not know how believable, but it looks cool.
When the sky suddenly begins to turn, obeying control, even a little dizzy, everything is so believable.
Some result. Simulators are needed and useful to any army. Especially if they are combined with practical exercises.
