Military Aircraft

Thales Training Systems for Military Aircraft cater to complex mission requirements in the most demanding operating environments. 

Our military aircraft portfolio spans jet fighters, tactical transport and refuelling aircraft. It comprises Training Systems and Services for : A400M, Voyager, Tornado, Rafale, Mirage 2000, Hawk and Eurofighter, among others.


With its partners, Thales supports the armed forces with advanced Training Devices on NH90, Tiger, Cougar and other military helicopters.

Thales also delivers outstanding civil training devices such as the Reality H full flight simulators.

Land Forces

Thales's global Land Forces Training simulation approach has delivered more than 300 armoured vehicle gunnery and driving simulator worldwide. Our innovative simulation approach provides Land Forces students with the ability to train and prepare to perform the full spectrum of military operations from offense, defense, stability and support manoeuvres.
In a digitised battlespace environment, we support the progress from ab-initio driving, to advanced tactical driving skills. Full-scale replicas of driving cabs and turrets are included in the range, together with appropriate detection and identification sensors, and several training systems can be linked to real-time computer generated imagery.
The Combat Training System is a sophisticated system catering for tactical training needs in the field, for company commanders and their subordinates, in decision-making, co-ordination and manoeuvring within a framework of a combined arms tactical task force.
The Unit Commander Tactical Training system is a reconfigurable system featuring a flexible multi-level architecture to train commanders of mechanised infantry and armoured units tactical reasoning and decision making. It is based on 3D graphic desktop stations for trainees and role-players, networked with PC stations for tactical server and instructional staff.
Thales covers all areas of small arms training, from pistols to grenade launchers and guided weapons. Based on a common modular product design, a wide variety of options can be provided to meet specific training requirements.

Thales offers a global simulation and training approach that links together various simulators to perform the full spectrum of military operations (offense, defense, stability and support manoeuvres) in a digitized battlespace environment.
It allows to achieve a large scale of training goals for joint forces, international and coalition operations.

Thales offers a comprehensive product range of driving simulators for many types of platforms such as tanks, light tracked, wheeled and engineering vehicles. More than 300 vehicle driving simulators of 18 different types are now in operation in 12 countries, in fixed buildings as well as in mobile trailers.
