The Russian military is planning to introduce ‘virtual battlefield’ military training by 2013, chief of general staff General Nikolai Makarov has said.

“We must adopt quickly … and figure out as soon as possible how to train our soldiers and the military as a whole,” he added.

The new system, developed by Russian Transas New Technologies, is based on computer simulation technology where battle actions are modelled with 3D computer graphics, computational geometry and artificial intelligence.

Makarov said the new system would be superior to similar systems fielded by other advanced military forces.

RIA Novosti has reported a source in the Western military district as saying that the systems will initially be implemented on the strategic command / army level and will later be brought to the brigade level.
