The SOE KMDB has a multi-year experience in designing, developing and manufacturing various simulators for armoured vehicles. The specific feature of the computer-based simulators developed by the SOE KMDB is their modular design.
The simulators can be used both for training the whole crew and for training the driver, commander, and gunner separately. At the customer's request, the simulators can either be installed on the universal motion platform or supplied in a static version.
Use of the simulators enables the customers to solve several main problems:
- to save operational materials, ammunition, and service life of the vehicles due to computer-based training
- to increase the quality of training
- to carry out training of the personnel in the environments that do not allow using real vehicles, e.g. urban areas and NBC environment
The open architecture makes it possible to unite several simulators in one network and to create combined tactical training systems.
The simulators for T-55 tanks that are now series-produced by SOE KMDB will be supplied to a foreign customer. The export contract envisages supply of not only the simulators themselves, but also a set of accompanying services including installation and adjustment in the country of the customer, guarantee and after-guarantee service, and training of the customer's service personnel.
The Kharkiv Morozov Machine Building Design Bureau (KMDB) is a state enterprise, which is now Ukraine's leading design authority for armoured fighting vehicles and used to play a key role in the development of armoured tracked vehicles in the former Soviet Union.
The contemporary activities of the KMDB are distinguished by three main factors:
- the ability to offer customers a wide range of armoured vehicles and other products for both military and civil use, as well as obsolete vehicle upgrade packages
- the provision of equipment closely tailored to customer's individual requirements
- the availability of long-term support for the end user
