Joint Fires is an integrated element of TBS that provides a detailed simulation of Joint Terminal Attack Controller (JTAC) operations. Clients can act as the JTAC and communicate and designate targets for aircraft client players on the same network.
The JTAC client can be placed anywhere on the map and be assigned to a vehicle that can be driven to other locations.
The JTAC player includes a binocular view that can be used to laser designate a target, designate with an IR pointer, or determine UTM coordinates.
By placing a TBS Joint Fires simulator station next to a TBS pilot station, both JTAC and pilot can easily communicate and learn in a classroom-type environment.
As with other elements of TBS, Joint Fires is Virtual Reality compliant.
