Minister for Home Affairs, National Security and Law Enforcement Byron Camilleri announced a brand new investment worth €1,290,000 into a Shooting Simulator for Malta’s Armed Forces.
The virtual simulator was inaugurated at the Armed Forces barracks in Hal Far and it aims to improve the training of soldiers in basic, advanced, static and tactical shooting.
Given the restrictions at the usual ranges in Hal Safi, Pembroke and in Gozo, the simulator should improve the training level of soldiers and assist them in taking tactical decisions in delicate situations.
Speaking at a press conference, Minister Camilleri said that this investment will give the possibility to Maltese soldiers to train in essential skills required for their military careers.
Camilleri said that he and his ministry are ready to keep investing into the country’s armed forces, announcing in the process the opening of applications for those interested in joining as soldiers or official cadets.
