The Republic of Korea Air Force (ROKAF) has awarded a contract to Cubic Global Defense (CGD) to supply its P5 Combat Training System (P5CTS).

Cubic and principal subcontractor Leonardo DRS will deliver P5CTS airborne subsystems and associated ground subsystems to integrate with ROKAF aircraft and training infrastructure.

The P5CTS is the fourth and fifth-generation interoperable Air Combat Maneuvering Instrumentation (ACMI) system flying in the world today. The P5CTS provides high-fidelity, live mission training capabilities for advanced weapons and tactics training.

"We are incredibly excited to deliver the system to the ROKAF. This system will enable interoperable instrumented air combat training across the Korean peninsula and the entire fleet of ROKAF combat aircraft well into the 2040s,” said Jonas Furukrona, vice president and general manager of Air Training Solutions, Cubic Global Defense.

"This P5CTS system will also be integrated with existing ROK Army training infrastructure and electronic warfare ranges to deliver a true multi-domain exercise capability."

Training for today’s advanced threats to air operations requires adaptable and highly advanced training tools. Cubic said the system sets the standard for joint, multi-service and coalition training.

Cubic have recently won contracts to deliver the system to the United States Air Force and BAE Systems.
