Elbit to Supply Joint Fires Simulation Training Artillery Systems to British Army for $38M

The UK Ministry of Defense has awarded Elbit Systems a $38 million contract to supply comprehensive joint fires simulation training (JFST) artillery systems to the British Army.

The JFST systems will be supplied over two years, after which Elbit Systems UK will provide four more years of maintenance, technical support and on-site training, the company said in a statement Tuesday.

Under this contract, Elbit Systems UK will provide both fixed and mobile systems that are comprised of multiple networked simulators set to train mounted and dismounted Joint Fires teams and Joint Fires Cells. JFST systems will also be supporting exercises for reserve forces and teams deployed at sea, such as those onboard the Royal Navy's Queen Elizabeth Class Aircraft Carrier.
