Elbit hands over driving simulators to two Nato armies

Elbit Systems has supplied advanced driving simulators to the armed forces of two Nato member countries.

The company designed, produced and delivered three types of driving simulator, including KMW's DINGO 2, a 4x4 mine-protected vehicle; GD-MOWAG's Piranha IIIC, an 8x8 armoured infantry fighting vehicle; and IVECO's Trakker, a 6x6 off-road truck.

The simulators can be operated in stand-alone and convoy training modes, and used to simulate a range of on and off-road driving conditions in tracked and wheeled combat vehicles. Elbit Systems aerospace division general manager Yoram Shmuely said: "These high-fidelity driving simulators are part of our global land-based training programmes, which include customers in Israel, Europe and Asia.
