This is developing tech that may come to the Cove.  

VBS 3 is a virtual simulation capability that has been used by Army for a number of years.  

Bohemia Interactive are developing a tactical wargaming program called 'VBS Tactics'.  It uses Artificial Intelligence to create an enemy for you to wargame against.  Take a look and let us know what you think!

It looks impressive. I wonder if Defense will allow for serving members to freely use this tool as they have most likely enterprise agreeement with BIS . The cost is quite high for purchase however it provides awesome capabilities. I am personalty fan of Arma3 that shares many of technologies with VBS3 and the usability is high. .
