The X-CAL™ machine gun is the only weatherproof (not just weather-resistant) simulator available on the market today. The versatility of either mounted or man-carried, the X-CAL™ does not sacrifice any safety for sound. Standard with every simulator is the ability to choose between different gun platforms; from an M2A1, M107, AK47, M240B, or an M4 and M16. The X-CAL™ has the ability to reliably fire 5-10 shots per second utilizing Cold Fire™ technology, as well as a single-fire sniper mode. The X-CAL™ will also report correct IR readings for any ISR assets being used during a training cycle in addition to realistic muzzle flash for night Ops. The X-CAL™ also has the longest remote capability at 800m. So from convoy training to complex attack scenarios, the X-CAL™ is the most versatile machine gun simulator available.

Additionally, every Battlefield Effects simulator has an option for New Equipment Training (NET) to enable the user to maximize training effectiveness.
