Members of the Oklahoma Air National Guard's 146th Air Support Operations Squadron (ASOS), located at Will Rogers Air National Guard Base in Oklahoma City, are training on the first simulator designed specifically for their mission. The simulator trains Joint Tactical Attack Controllers (JTAC) on proper coordination and control of close air support missions. The system is reconfigurable to simulate virtually any environment and most aircraft and weapons systems utilized by JTACs.
