Though the military does have certain training regimes to hone the specific skills of soldiers that will help them counter a terrorist attack, they don't have a complete training environment, that could help them apply all their skills together in a realistic environment. For instance, soldiers can normally train how to contain a threat, and they can learn how to breach buildings, and eliminate hostile targets in close-quarters combat. However, terrorist attacks, and the operations done to prevent these attacks are usually very dynamic, where the situations can change instantly. In such situations, soldiers need to rely on the intelligence they have and make quick decisions in the field to prevent disasters. This, among many others, is an ability that is very difficult to train in a conventional setting.
Therefore, virtual shooting simulators
can be a very effective way for soldiers to train for counter-terrorism missions. These shooting simulators use multiple training simulations that have been designed to be dynamic and respond to the actions of the trainees. With multiple decision trees and artificial Intelligence, combines with hyperrealistic visuals, these simulations create a very realistic combat environment, which gives soldiers a true combat experience, and helps them train a wide range of counter-terrorism skills, such as marksmanship, de-escalation, threat containment, close quarters combat, situational awareness, and many others in a safe, and observable environment.
