Challenger II Training.

Procedural Training System for the Army.

It’s impractical to introduce faults in physical equipment for training purposes so we were approached to adapt our part task ETS training system for fault-finding in the new Challenger II transmission system TN54e – deemed too complex for instructional computer based training but without the cost and detail of a full systems simulator.

Featuring real time 3D vehicles, realistic control panels and controls, this training system provides a synthetic environment where users undertake tasks to build confidence and competencies before contact with prime equipment. Backed by a learning management system, the software runs in three modes so candidates can practice prior to being tracked and tested.

For maximum flexibility and cost effectiveness the software was designed for off-the-shelf PCs, so that hardware purchased for classrooms could also be used for existing training packages and off-site learning is also possible on a stand-alone desktop PC or laptop.



Thumb worked seamlessly with our subject matter experts, rapidly understanding and transferring highly technical knowledge into their training system. There’s no other way to train these fault finding issues at this price point and Thumb have always been on budget and our client considers the training solution to be the best their engineers have ever received.”
