No need to split hairs on terms, military simulator is a valid genre name of PC Gaming, and the term is not meant to detract or replace a training simulator of any kind used for IRL purposes such as flight or military training applications.

It's not even enough to add a qualifier to VBS to call it a 'real' military simulator, it's just a completely different application and approach to human interaction with software for a completely different purpose. Saying VBS is a military simulator but Arma 3 is not is disrespective of the different applications of both - again, comparing how little an apple tastes like an orange.

Take away the sandbox and even mods, and Arma 3 is still a military simulator PC game, above and beyond any secondary descriptions as an FPS shooter or military action PC game. It's quite a distinction from the likes of games like Battlefield, or even the amazing work done by PR to become better than Battlefield. If PR was a mil-sim, it would not be as cool and popular as it is... it bridges the gap between milsim and FPS tactical in a way that no other game can or has even come close to recreating.

PR is a shooter with consequences.
To minimize the damage of the aforementioned you need to rely on teamplay.
