The first day of the Conference and Exhibition “International Armoured Vehicles 2010” was devoted to talks on various systems and methodologies of drive by the use of technologies of video simulator and the integration of the applications of video games. In order to reduce the costs of real drives, mainly for the armoured units, several armies of the world call upon companies of the field of video simulation to produce applications 3D which reproduce the various possibilities of control and shootings of a combat armored vehicle. The use of this type of technology makes it possible to reproduce in a virtual form, the new zones of combat in order to apply standards procedures and to prepare the troops with new the threats of the battle field. These programs are developed on the basis of experiment of the troops in combat zones like Iraq and Afghanistan. Thanks to the power of the modern computers, and the possibility of reproducing in digital form, the ground and all the human factors and equipment/vehicles of the civil and military field, it is possible to reproduce today with exactitude a whole a series of scenarios make it possible to prepare the soldiers, since the individual level up to a level of army corps to different situations from the current combat. The use of these means will never replace the experiment of the combat, but makes it possible to formalize and apply military procedures standards.
