Ser No 2122-268
This LVPSU was fitted to an F-16C/D style Electronics Unit in a demonstrator HUD system fitted to the Sierra T-38 in 1996 by Tracor.
After a long competition in September 1996 the T-38 avionics update programme was awarded to a combination of McDonnell Douglas (MDC) and Israel Aircraft Industries (IAI).
This would have been a significant programme for the Company to have won because it involved some 425 aircraft with the ultimate aim of introducing F-22 symbology into the HUD and the Company supplied the F-22 system.
