British Armed Forces inaugurate a bespoke trainer for the AW159 Wildcat

Royal Navy students will get to experience weapon loading training not on the real rotorcraft but on a high-fidelity device that incorporates aircraft systems. It’s the first time they’ve been able to do that since the AW159 Wildcat helicopter entered service.

Back in 2014, Leonardo was awarded a UK MoD (Ministry of Defense) contract for integrating and testing the MBDA Sea Venom (Heavy) and Thales LMM (Light) missile systems onto the Royal Navy’s Wildcat helicopters. According to Leonardo, the LMM is now successfully integrated. This weapon will help increase the rotorcraft’s efficiency in engaging smaller, asymmetric threats in maritime environments.

This bespoke trainer developed by Pennant International will help future operators handle weapon loading as efficiently as possible for both legacy weapons and the new systems that were recently integrated.
