Elbit Systems was selected to provide a real-time combat training and accompanying equipment for the special forces of the Polish Army, Israel Defense reported Monday. The Combat Training System is an advanced trainer based on highly realistic simulations designed specifically for the US Marines and Special Forces, offering combat scenarios from an individual combat soldier to an entire combat unit. The system simulates a wide range of operational scenarios and real battlefield elements in urban and rural combat inside buildings.
The system, which will be provided in cooperation with Swiss RUAG Defence Management and Polish Autocomp, offers unprecedented realistic scenarios for training special forces.
As part of the project, Elbit Systems and its partners will provide combat soldiers with live fire training suits, vehicles, equipment for use in simulation and training facilities, as well as blank explosives and grenades, and even “suicide bombers.” Digital recording and data transmission capabilities will be provided, facilitating centralized network control for the training troops and their equipment, with recording capabilities, control and investigation of the entire training process.
The Polish Special Forces, a.k.a. Wojska Specjalne (Special Troops) is the 4th military branch of the Armed Forces of the Republic of Poland, formed in 2007.
