This order is an extension of the existing contract with the Romanian Ministry of Defence for the upgrade of the Romanian Air Force fleet of MiG-21 aircraft. Elbit Systems has already upgraded more than 90 MiG-21 Lancer aircraft ("single seaters" and "two seaters") which constitute the operational backbone of the Romanian Air Force.
Under the new contract, the additional trainers will replace four "single seater" MiG-21 aircraft and an additional full mission simulator for the upgraded MiG-21 Lancer aircraft will be supplied by Elbit Systems, thus expanding the training capability of the Romanian Air Force.
