The Australian Army has been equipped with a new virtual training device that enables troops to train in foreign countries while still based in Australia.

The virtual programme is a representation of the ground and its surroundings and provides soldiers with a first-hand look at the destincation country’s environment before they’ve even left Australia.

The Royal Tasmanian Regiment Lieutenant Cameron McDougall said the device provides training to the soldiers through operation in a virtual world.

“We’ve got all the same vehicles, the same equipment, the same weapons, everything we would have in reality,” he said.

The virtual training provides the troops with skills required for a five-month peacekeeping mission and allows an interactive experience with the police and locals on the ground, according to Sky News.
