The project will provide a crew training system for land combat vehicles that will be comprised of simulators, infrastructure and a learning environment complete with operations and maintenance support. The focus will be on the Upgraded Light Armoured Vehicle III and the Leopard 2 fleets. The crew training system will be networked to provide individual and higher levels of training.


The project will procure a common/central computer generated imagery and modern high, medium and low fidelity simulators with network capabilities in purpose built infrastructure in five Canadian Armed Forces Bases (Gagetown, Valcartier, Petawawa, Shilo and Edmonton). The Land Vehicle Crew Training System will provide simulation for the upgraded Light Armoured Vehicle fleet, which is the largest armoured vehicle fleet, and the Leopard 2 fleet. Other land combat vehicles will be addressed with low fidelity simulation and by other potential land projects, as necessary. At the individual training level, a single crew station shall be used to teach and develop the skills of crew commanders, gunners/loaders and drivers. The crew stations will be linked over local area networks to train up to the sub-unit combat team level.
