Bohemia Interactive Simulations (BISim) is pleased to announce that the French Ministry of Defense has purchased an enterprise license of VBS3.

VBS3 provides an immersive virtual environment that helps soldiers train on tactics, rehearse for missions, and practice standard operating procedures. With its After Action Review tool, the software  is  designed  to  help  soldiers  learn  to  think,  make  decisions  and  improve communications before heading to the field for live exercises. VBS3 is used for tactical training and  mission  rehearsal  on  desktop  computers  as  well  as  part-task  trainers  and  full-mission simulators.

The French military have used VBS  in  various training  capacities  since 2008. VBS  has been used for individual training classes in the French military schools for
engineering, artillery and convoy training tasks.

BISim will work  to  translate VBS  products  and  manuals  into French  as  part  of  the  enterprise license  agreement.  The  French  already  have  access  to  several  virtual  terrains  representing actual French military training areas in VBS.

“The French Armed Forces can now fully leverage VBS3 for networked, collective military training, providing them significant flexibility to help them meet their training needs now and in the future,” said Pete Morrison, BISim’s CoCEO. “We look forward to supporting the French military in the coming years.”

The purchase also includes licenses of VBS3 Fires, an add-on call for fire module that simulates fire support from a wide range of platforms for VBS3; VBS3 Fires FST, a professional forward  air  controller  (FAC)  training  application  for  VBS3;  and  VBS3  Fusion,  the official Application Programming Interface for VBS3.

More  than  30  NATO  entities,  countries  and  partner  nations  use  VBS  as  part  of  their  virtual training  including  the  French  Armed  Forces,  U.S.  Army,  U.S.  Marine  Corps,  UK  Ministry  of Defence, Australia Defence Force, Canadian Armed Forces, and New Zealand Defense Force.
