The Royal Moroccan Air Force (RMAF) will get the P5 Combat Training System (P5CTS) under a USD5.5 million contract announced by the US Federal Business Opportunities (FBO) website on 31 January.

The FBO announcement said the contract was awarded to Cubic Defense Applications, but provided no further details.

P5CTS is designed to provide realistic air combat training. It can be adapted for use on most fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft and can simulate longer-range engagements than earlier systems.

As the system is widely deployed, the RMAF would be able to use its P5CTS in exercises with many other air forces.

P5CTS features pods, carried by all aircraft in training exercises, that continuously share location and weapons data between all the aircraft through datalinks.
