Australian combat troops, as part of their training before going to Iraq, use a computer game that enabled them to drive their armored vehicles through a computer version of the their AO (Area of Operation) in Iraq. The simulation looks pretty realistic, much like video games civilians play. In fact, the Australians used a commercial computer wargame. Steelbeasts Pro is licensed to the Australian army for such training. The game is quite realistic, and, most importantly, has tools the troops can use to make it even more so. Using one meter resolution satellite photos, the games editing tools allow the troops to reconstruct their AO. Thus equipped, the troops can run realistic simulated combat missions before they even get to Iraq. Thus their first actual patrols will be over familiar territory, and there will be fewer surprises when they actually get to Iraq.
