Rheinmetall announced today that it has successfully passed acceptance tests for Leopard 2 simulators for the Indonesian Army.
Rheinmetall has produced driving simulator and gunnery simulator systems for training Indonesian Leopard 2 tank personnel. The order is worth several million euros.
The Leopard Gunnery Skills Trainer (LGST) and Driver Training Simulator (DTS) are specifically designed for training Leopard 2A4 tank crews, and will primarily be used for sharpening the gunnery and combat skills of commanders, gunners and drivers.
