REPRESENTATIVES of the US Army have accepted delivery of a Slovak-manufactured simulator that will be used to train Afghan crews to operate G222 military cargo planes. The simulator, worth $2.5 million, is one of the biggest of six flight training systems supplied to the US Army, stated an official press release issued on August 21.
“This [handover] is another example how cooperation and mutual support between the United States and its allies – Slovakia among them – contributes to stabile transition in Afghanistan,” said US Ambassador to Slovakia Theodore Sedgwick, as quoted in the press release.
