"VBS2 JCOVE", A Free Taste of VBS2 Courtesy of the UK Department of Defense

Thanks Jens for the heads up on this free simulation based on VBS2!  Please click on the "read more" link below for a short description, links and download information.

From the official website:

JCOVE Lite is a freeware game derived from Bohemia Interactive's VBS2 software - itself a derivative of Armed Assault but focused on simulated training for military purposes. JCOVE Lite was funded by the UK MOD to give the general public, particularly potential recruits, an idea of how the British military trained for combat as well as providing a more realistic combat simulation than your standard shoot'em-up. Overall it gives serious gamers an immensely modifiable platform to create, share and play their own missions using a huge range of British military equipment - from the humble Sig 229 to the legendary Challenger 2 Main Battle Tank. It is available for free from Armed Forces Careers Offices around the UK, as well as available to download publically for all registered community members at jcove-lite.co.uk.
For downloading JCOVE Lite, you will first need through an easy registration process.
