This Nineteen Seventies tank simulator drives through a small world

At the Swiss Military Museum in Full, there is the last remaining occurence of a Nineteen Seventies tank-driving simulator. But there is no virtual worlds here: it is attached to a real camera and a real miniature model. ■ More about the museum:

Camera: Tobias Buchmann
Producer: Sebastian Capeda at Viven
Audio mix: Dan Pugsley (my microphone failed inside the really noisy simulator; he did a spectacular job!)

  6. The US Army had helicopter simulators that used the same technology.
