    I truly don't understand why they put a police tag onto an APC/IFV, and made it into a police vehicle, when it is a purely military vehicle and is supposed to be in GAF land forces.

    Because Georgia, like most ex-Communist countries has a Police Force which is paramilitary in character.

    Indeed. Though "Police" is a pretty relative and irritating designation in this case. These are MIA equipement. The Georgian Patrol ( former Milicia ) does not use them. They have no access to Cobras, Wolfs or Ejders. It are Interior Ministry security services which use them. Mostly heavy armed Special Purpose units. Every security branch has it's specialized sub divisions who get special equipement and gear. We ordinary people) still do not have much knowledge about what the MIA pocesses. Remember the parliament storming in 2003, where Shevardnadze was escorted by Interior Ministry CT units armed and equipped to the teeth ? Noone even knew about their existence.

    Opening of Simulation Training Center

    Simulation Training Center has been opened for the military servicemen of GAF. Thanks to the modern technologies installed at the facility, military subunits will be capable to create favourable conditions for trainings. Military exercises will be conducted at tactical, operational and strategic levels. The new center will enable the soldiers to plan military operations beforehand, to realize them and make subsequent analysis. Georgian instructors underwent a special preparation to lead simulative exercises for militaries in cooperation with the US military experts group CUBIC. The first series of staff trainings is scheduled to be held by the end of July with participation of the 41st Battalion.
    The center opening ceremony, that was organized at the “Krtsanisi” National Training Center, was attended by the MoD and JS leading officials as well as the United States` Ambassador to Georgia John R. Bass and accredited military attaches.
    The Simulation Training Center has been formed through the framework of the US-Georgia cooperation. The United States, under the ongoing collaboration, donated the Center with advanced technical equipment and developed special training programs for it.
