Zen Medium Machine Gun Simulator (Zen MMG Sim)
Zen MMG Sim
is an interactive indoor training aid to train MMG detachment numbers in techniques of engagement of various targets, fire control and tactical employment of the weapon system.
The gunner operates a replica/modified service MMG and engages targets projected on a video screen, in different types of terrain under varying light and environmental conditions.
Besides engagement of targets in battlefield scenarios, Annual Range Course exercises can also be conducted. Engagement drills such as for Point/Wide/Traverse targets with variations in depth, Obscured target and Night firing can be practiced.
The basic system comes with two-lanes for a Section, upgradeable up to eight lanes. The configuration of the simulator is:
- Display screen for projected visuals
- Replica MMG or modified service MMG
- Input-Output box for each lane
- Air compressor for weapon recoil
- Instructor Console
- Intercommunication devices
The easy-to-operate Instructor Console is equipped with two computers loaded with Instructor Station, Input-Output, Visual Station, diagnostics and calibration software and allows instructor to start, pause, resume, monitor and stop an exercise.
