C-130J Simulator For Hindan AFS

The C-130J full-mission simulator that will be installed at Hindan for the Indian Air Force by early next year (deal signed in Paris on June 15). The simulator, built by CAE, will be the first Herc-sim to feature the CAE-Moog FCS proprietary True(TM) electric motion technology (Photo 2), which apparently provides more accurate and authentic motion cues for pilot training than legacy hydraulic motion systems installed on most simulators. According to literature on the technology, benefits of the technology also include "reduced overall simulator operating costs through lower energy consumption and less scheduled maintenance". Photo 3 shows the electric motion cabinet, which doesn't require a hydraulic power unit (HPU) room, and therefore saves space as well.
