The new Mission Training Center will be added to the existing MTC, which will be upgraded as part of the contract. Both MTCs will improve the quality of aircrew training, doubling the number of training sorties for the IAF's F-16 and F-15 aircrew. The Air Force's new MTC will include ten simulators with advanced high-resolution displays, accurate weapon simulation and Elbit's arena generator, which combine to enable simulation of both current and future battlefield environments.

Yoram Shmuely, General Manager of Elbit Systems Aerospace, commented: “Elbit Systems appreciates the strong partnership and the confidence of the IMoD and the IDF. Armed forces around the world are reshaping their training capabilities while striving to improve combat readiness and efficiency. This contract award emphasizes Elbit Systems' leading position as a provider of advanced mission training systems.”
