L3Harris to upgrade F-5 fighters for Tactical Air Support
Aviation consulting and training company Tactical Air Support (TAS) has selected L3Harris Technologies to upgrade its F-5 Advanced Tiger (F-5AT) advanced tactical aircraft with equipment equivalent to current US fourth-generation fighter jets.
The new equipment will provide increased situational awareness and advanced flight data for pilots, L3Harris explained in a 25 May statement.
According to the manufacturer, the TACAN+ is designed with two automatically enabled air-to-air transmit-receive modes that can track a lead aircraft across a wide range of flying scenarios.
Specifically, it uses the Advanced Tiger for aggressor/adversary support and fighter lead-in training.
