BAE has upgraded the UK Royal Air Force (RAF) TMk2 aircraft trainer to support the air force’s need for improved efficiency and capability enhancement.

An operational capability 2 (OC2) software upgrade will be installed on the Hawk TMk2 so that pilots can perform virtual operational manoeuvres using synthetic weapons to defeat threats.

The software provides the Hawk with simulated radar and sensor capability including a radar warning receiver, defensive aids, and an enhanced weapons suite including medium range air-to-air missiles.

The new capability enables RAF trainee pilots to train longer before moving onto front line operational aircraft such as Tornado, Typhoon and F-35 Lightning II.
