The new model for the Mission Rehearsal Tactical Trainer will provide CH-146 gunners and rear crew with an increased immersive and higher fidelity experience.

Canadian simulation and training solution company Simthetiq has been selected to support the upgrade of the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) Mission Rehearsal Tactical Trainer (MRTT) for the CH-146 Griffon.

The company was asked to digitally scan the CH-146 and develop a high-fidelity 3D model from this digital asset. The training model will be used in the RCAF’s VR-based gunnery and rear crew training system for the Griffon.
