All in all very cool, shame we wont get to set our own weird hybrid dcs/arma/vbs “Fly-in” on mudspike.
At I/ITSEC 2016 in Orlando, Bohemia Interactive Simulations presented live, a complex, combined arms demonstration using VBS Blue IG for an F/A-18 Super Hornet simulation, using a DBOX Motion System and sim chair from Ausimtech, connected to VBS3 for a U.S. Army Stryker trainer and dismounted soldiers, using Talon motion simulators. The flight model of the F/A-18 was driven by FLEX-Air from SASimulations. The scenario was also networked with VBS3 Fires FST, which controls the gun lines. The training exercise was conducted on terrain generated by TerraSim’s TerraTools software.

update: I think their F-18 is simulating multicrew…sexual.
No, but it is the sort of stuff that you half hear, and you’re not sure if they’re speaking literally, speaking in relative terms to understand, etc. and I don’t want to make him or myself seem like an ass.
I’d heard things like lasing a bomb in VBS, dropping it from an A-10 in DCS, and having it hit in VBS/DCS. I don’t know if they were literally using those suites, if was a DCS like product, or if VBS has a A-10-lite module.
Long story short: I am lead to believe there is more potential for integration of multiple sims in the commercial side of things then the consumer. You can have your Arma/SB/DCS doom hybrid, you just need to pony up some tens of millions of cash for it.
Yeah, that VBS Blue is pretty cool looking…very cool how it all works with the different specific vendor needs. Makes me really wish we had VR integration for the helos and vehicles in A3… Thanks for the video…!
Wow, that’s pretty neat!
A few years ago, I started pushing the idea on both ED and BIS forums.Neither communities were extremely excited…
