Meggitt weapon simulators for ADF

7th July 2016 - 09:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Meggitt Training Systems has received an $18 million contract from the Australian Defence Force’s (ADF) Capability Acquisition and Sustainment Group, the company announced on 5 July.

Meggitt will manufacture, develop and install 115 SL40 40mm simulated grenade launchers and 460 EF88 Steyr assault rifle simulators. Deliveries will occur at 18 locations across Australia to support air force, navy and army training requirements. Deliveries are expected to commence in the fourth quarter of 2017 and continue until May 2018.

Steyr Mannlicher’s SL40 grenade launcher is used with the EF88 rifle used by the ADF. The EF88 assault rifle was introduced in 2015.

Chris Jordan, managing director, Meggitt Training Systems, Australia, said: ‘We have supplied, operated and maintained the ADF’s Weapon Training Simulation System since 1999 and this latest weapons simulator award further validates Meggitt’s long-standing strategic partnership with the ADF.’
