Taiwan to receive F-16V Peace Phoenix MTC

4th August 2017 - 11:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


L3 Link Simulation and Training has been awarded a contract to build and deliver the F-16V Peace Phoenix Rising Mission Training Centre (MTC) to the Republic of China Air Force (ROCAF), the company announced on 1 August.

The MTC will consist of four networked mission simulators for immersive mission training, and will replace the existing F-16 mission simulators in Taiwan.

Deliveries are scheduled for 2018 and 2019.

The ROCAF’s F-16V MTC will support basic pilot, pilot conversion and advanced skills training. Using simulators, pilots will be able to practice take-offs, landings, low-level flight, and emergency procedures. The MTC will also give pilots the ability to conduct mission-level team training, as well as to acquire and identify targets for ordnance delivery.

Each simulator in the F-16V MTC will have a dedicated instructor/operator station integrated with L3 Link’s SimuSphere HD nine-facet visual system display, giving pilots a 360-degree field-of-view. The simulators will also feature a high-definition database and image generation systems to create realistic and relevant training environments.
