Steelbeasts SimLab for Reserves Training

Evening all.

 

I have been having some discussions with my team in how to achieve mounted training for my reservists.

 

We are looking to scope the option of a Sim Lab to run SB to deliver crew, Tp and Sqn training.

 

I would welcome thoughts on what we might need - especially from those who are already using it for this function:

 

My initial thoughts are:

 

Excon x 1 

Blue Roleplayer x 2 (Inf, Engrs, Arty, flanking etc etc...)

OPFOR Roleplayer x1 (the meanies)

 

Training troops x 18

 

Means I could do:

 

  • Commanders only (18 computers)
  • Gunners and Commanders (2 Tps of 4 = 16 computers)
  • Gunners Commanders and Drivers (1 Tp = 12 computers)

 

Max total number of computers = 22.

 

I am thinking laptops for ease of setup and storage etc - an idea of what I should be looking at would also be very helpful.

 

Clearly we are going to have to apply for funding so I can't kick the arse out of it - but it needs to work.

 

Clearly SB liceneces would be required and that will be $115 x 22 = $2,530 - unless there is a smarter way of doing this...

 

Thoughts welcome.

 

Cheers - CharlieB

@CharlieB We have been doing this for a while.

 

20 or so Sec Trunks comprising:

 

40x Laptops, joysticks and mice,

several "driver" steering wheels

3 x Switches

Qty Ethernet

LitePro

Portable screen.

 

The ADF is a military customer so we had 2 x 50 user dongles - which allowed us to run two separate concurrent activities on different LANs.

 

I'll see if I can find:

 

a. The thread here from a while ago

b. The post Trials report - this will likely be via PM or email.

My recommendation would be a 4...12 core CPU; depending on the brand and your budget you may end up on the lower or higher end of that spectrum. 8 GByte RAM, possibly 16. GPU is something that you should decide at the last minute. There's some motion in the market (Intel with Iris GPUs; they're not quite there yet but may become a contender in six...twelve months).

 

Your choice of Steel Beasts licenses, well, contact me by email.
