US-based L-3 Communications has won a $19.5 million Foreign Military Sales deal to supply a tactical operational flight trainer for the Boeing F/A-18D Hornet to Malaysia.
The fixed-based simulator will have positions for both a pilot and weapons systems officer, L-3 Communications says.
The simulator will include a 360˚ high definition visual display. In addition, the deal covers a brief/debrief station and logistics support.
The Royal Malaysian Air Force has a fleet of eight twin-seat F/A-18Ds, as recorded by Flightglobal's MiliCAS database.
