If you thought "Call of Duty" was lifelike, wait until you engage with Program Manager Training Systems' "Deployable Virtual Training Environment"!
DVTE, for short, is a laptop-based training simulation used by United States Marine Corps. That's right — this is what our soldiers are using to train! This particular simulation utilizes Virtual Battlespace 3, and users can control a tactically based first-person shooter that includes use of Marine Corps weapons and vehicles.
If that's not enough, actual Marines will be on-hand to assist attendees and even go head-to-head with you. Your console games have nothing on this experience!
