Games eh simulaties worden steeds vaker gebruikt door het leger. Al eerder was bekend dat Delta Force 2 gebruikt zou worden, dit keer mogen de G.I's Steel Beasts gaan spelen. Deze tanksimulatie zou de "real deal" voldoende moeten nabootsen zodat de groentjes dadelijk klaar zijn voor het echte werk.

Shrapnel Games announced that the United States Military Academy at West Point has ordered 1,040 copies of the tank simulation Steel Beasts. According to Shrapnel, this order indicates that the Department of Military Instruction Warfighting Center sees the

educational use that the true-to-life tank simulation can provide. Shrapnel has had discussions with West Point representatives concerning the use of the game in the classroom. The use of electronic games in military training is not unheard of; back in March, it was announced that the US Army planned to use the squad-based action game Delta Force 2 in a training program.Als Saddam dit leest koopt ie ook meteen tig kopieen .
