Information Age brings technologies that provide unparalleled opportunities for
military and security force, including Army of the Republic of Macedonia, to develop and adopt
new operational concepts for training and experimentation that may radically enhance their
competitive edge. Serious games show to have positive impact on training results. Advantages
of simulation games lay in the provision of a safe training environment, where users are able
to play, test and probe without serious consequences. The purpose of this paper is to give a
brief info about computer gaming and serious games, and in line with that to describe a new
approach for building a Þ rearms simulator based on a serious game and motion sensor technology.
It also compares this model with the similar models that are in use in NATO allies and it
describes challenges and our plans for future work. At the end, we are giving initial assessment
of suitability of this kind virtual environment for military training.
