John Cockerill Defense has recently signed a contract with PT Pindad Enjiniring Indonesia (a subsidiary of PT PINDAD) to supply training simulators for the Indonesian Army. AGUERIS, a subsidiary of John Cockerill Defense France, will develop and manufacture the cabin simulators for the training of armoured vehicle crews. These are “Harimau” mediumtype tank vehicles equipped with the C3105 turret (105mm) from John Cockerill Defense.

The simulators will be of the Cabin type mounted on a motion platform, allowing the training of the Harimau vehicle pilot and the C3105 turret crew in high-fidelity conditions and excellent representation of the local environment. This new success comes on top of last year’s SERKET programme in France, won by AGUERIS as a co-contractor, which consists of supplying all the new generation training simulators required for the Scorpion Programme to the French Army.

“We are delighted to have been chosen for this forward-looking programme in Indonesia. This project will also allow AGUERIS to strengthen its presence in the military land simulation markets in Asia and to offer an even more efficient service to its customers” said Yves Jourde, President of AGUERIS.
