The U.K.'s Ministry of Defense gave Firearms Training Systems a $6 million for additional Dismounted Close Combat Training (DCCT) simulators. The firm first started supplying the U.K. with trainers in 1992, with the DCCT systems coming into deployment in 2001. The newest contract will supply more than 35 trainers, each system training five to ten soldiers at a time. The training includes basic to advanced marksmanship and small unit tactics. These units will be located in the U.K. and Brunei.
