Oxford, UK. SimCentric are excited to announce the release of VBS3 FiresFST Pro, evolving our flagship full-spectrum Call for Fire and Close Air Support Trainer to an unprecedented level. VBS3 FiresFST Pro now incorporates the human and vehicular pattern of life features from our Ambience application to support highly realistic, complex and flexible offensive support scenarios.
Whether in support of conventional peer-on-peer training, or counter-insurgency scenarios, VBS3 FiresFST Pro now allows the strategically critical element of Collateral Damage Estimates and Battle Damage Assessment to be genuinely incorporated into training instances.
Gareth Collier, Director of Strategic Engagement at SimCentric, commented. “Almost all available JFO/JTAC simulators are procedural, teaching only a prescribed sequence of dropping bombs and calling artillery. But the missing component that VBS3 FiresFST Pro now addresses is the cognitive element of when to apply various offensive fires effects, with realistic consequences for poor tactical decisions. VBS3 FiresFST Pro closes the gap between simulation, live training and operations, thereby reducing holistic risk of collateral damage and mission failure.”
VBS3 FiresFST Pro is available as a scalable COTS application for all new clients, or as an upgrade for our existing VBS3 FiresFST user community. SimCentric’s Ambience Pattern of Life generation application also remains available as a stand-alone offering worldwide for VBS3 users.
