“With the aim of decreasing the training costs and higher safety for forces who are being trained, a laser simulator for launching RPG7 rocket-propelled and hand grenades was unveiled in the provincial Abouzar base in Jiroft city,” Mehdi Soleimani, the training officer at Abouzar base said.
Noting that the simulator uses no ammunition, he explained that the system “can simulate the sound of real explosion for both weapons and provide the needed trainings for using the real weapons (in the battlefield).”
A simulator system for divers’ exit from Midget submarines, which can also be used for exercising the Navy personnel’s emergency exit, was unveiled in a ceremony participated by Lieutenant Commander of the Iranian Army Brigadier General Abdolrahim Moussavi and Navy Commander Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari in November.
Also in April, Iran unveiled its first home-made simulator for speed vessels in a ceremony attended by Lieutenant Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Navy General Alireza Tangsiri in the Central city of Isfahan.
