The contract also includes providing expanded role play, technical support for combat training instrumentation, battlefield effects, video and cultural role players for added realism.

“These units include conventional airborne, air assault, light infantry, mechanised infantry and armoured units.”

CGD president Dave Buss said: “Cubic has assisted the army with training for its combat teams and soldiers since 2001.

“We look forward to providing our world-class services to further enhance the training experiences of US and allied forces.”

These units include conventional airborne, air assault, light infantry, mechanised infantry and armoured units, as well as special operations forces from all service components.

The rotational training exercises at JRTC also involve active-duty, reserve, and National Guard units, and forces from other nations.
