ARLINGTON, Texas, Feb. 5 (UPI) -- L-3 Link Simulation and Training is building an F-16 Mission Training Center system for the U.S. Air Force in Germany.

The F-16 Mission Training Center, for Spangdahlem Air Base, is the seventh MTC the company has delivered or is in the process of integrating for the service.

"Fast jet training requires a high-definition simulation solution, and L-3 Link is proud to deliver this advanced training capability to the U.S. Air Force and its F-16 pilots," said Dan Kelly, L-3 Link's vice president of Air Force programs.

"Military flight simulation realism being exhibited on the F-16 MTC program today is maximizing pilot operational readiness while reducing overall training costs."

L-3 Link said each MTC system includes four high-definition simulators, four instructor/operator stations, two brief/debrief systems and a mission observation center. High-definition displays, image generators, databases and physics processing technology are combined to create its realistic relevant fighter training environments.
