Bangladesh Army (Thief) receives BTR 80 simulator

IHS Jane reported citing Turkish simulator manufacturer Simsoft that Simsoft has delivered its second BTR 80 vehicle crew simulator to the Bangladesh Army. Bangladesh Army currently operates more than 300 BTR-80 Armoured Personnel Carrier.

The package comprises driver training and commander/gunner simulators, which can be used separately for individual training or linked for full mission crew training. Each simulator is mounted on an articulated platform that can offer three degrees of freedom.

The image generation software, which is developed by Simsoft, provides weather effects, thermal and infrared (IR) camera visualisation, and battlefield effects.

The hardware is a mixture of real and high-fidelity replica equipment, including a periscope view system although it does not feature an out-of-hatch capability.
