Saab has won a contract to deliver virtual simulators for marksmanship and basic combat training with associated maintenance to the Finnish Defense Forces Logistics Command.
The order value is approximately 9 million Euro and the first deliveries will take place in 2019, the company said in a statement Monday.
This procurement is a part of the Finnish Armed Forces’ Training 2020 Programme, the virtual training simulators will be in full-scale use in 2020.
“This order marks a big breakthrough for our newly developed Ground Combat Indoor Trainer (GC IDT).

The contract contains models of the weapons used in Finland, computers with software that creates the virtual environment and provides the basis for analysis after the training. Saab will also be responsible for maintaining the systems.
