MASTERING THE MISSION
Controversy over cost and delays continues to dominate coverage of the F-35 Lightning II programme, but for the militaries that are starting to receive the aircraft, the practicalities of operating it are the primary focus.

LIAISONS WITH LATVIA
Following withdrawal from Afghanistan and Iraq and driven by Russian bellicosity, NATO allies are reassessing their deployment and use of armour, resulting in an increased emphasis on joint training in the Baltic region.

CALLING THE SHOTS
The highly specialised and mission-critical battlefield task of the JTAC and FAC requires equally focused training.

FINAL APPROACH
Simulation continues to play a big part in the integration of the UK's F-35B Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter on board the Royal Navy's new aircraft carriers.

TARGET MARKET
As tensions in the international geopolitical arena grow, major contracts are in the offing for training against aerial targets, with companies seeking to fulfil the requirements of armed forces around the world by offering a combination of upgrades and new equipment.

NECESSARY ADVERSARY
Major programmes in the UK and US are driving more nations to look at the provision of live air training services, a trend influenced by cost, aircraft availability and a shortage of pilots.
