All modern military forces during WWII used simulators for training. Mechanical ones, NOT the computerized simulators of today. Japanese airmen used simulators which used 4 or 6 foot long model US warships and sighted in on them with their (non-flying) simulators for practice. Then weeks before sailing for the actual attack, the airmen flew their aircraft on manuevers, dropping practice bombs and torpedos in a hidden bay, so spys could not see them.
