Bulgaria will be among the first countries to receive training simulators for the F-16 Block 70 fighters.

"The latest generation training complex allows pilots to train in a fully realistic environment, ensuring mission readiness," Chauncey McIntosh, vice president of Lockheed Martin's training and logistics business, said.

The simulators include all sensors and systems and can work in a network, so that pilots work together in different scenarios and receive the most advanced training, McIntosh adds.
