Just wondering if this is PAF's standard Viper Simulator.

Yes it is. And L-3 is no longer doing the supplying and maintenance. CAE have acquired L-3 military training division.

So on a lighter note, Canada is running the show.
L-3 supplies the primary ones so it might be that.
They provide more realistic environments but in terms of visuals are obsolete
These visuals are standard for the level devices PAF have acquired. And I can vouch that L-3 devices at the time are quality. I trained on a L-3 F-16 device, it felt extremely real.

Even though Canada doesn't operates F-16s. :what:

Unless they have been upgraded - I would be surprised(not that “real” wasn’t relevant then) that 2012 hardware and software is still current for today’s standards

Yes they don't operate F-16s. But CAE (former CAE guy here), which is based in Canada, is the world's largest provider of flight simulators and recently acquired L-3 Military Training.


But aerospace companies win contracts and buy other companies many times over irrespective if they operate it or not. Canada builds components and systems for the F-35s yet they don't operate the aircraft.

No major upgrades that I am aware of, but software updates are periodical to maintain certification for training pilots
