The IDF’s Ground Forces Command unveiled its first ever aircraft simulator, designed to train the Artillery Corps Sky Rider drone unit, the IDF said on Monday.

The Sky Rider unit – the only drone operator that does not belong to the Israel Air Force – recently took possession of an upgraded version of the remote-controlled aircraft, which entered service in 2010.

On Sunday, one of the Sky Rider drones crashed in the Gaza Strip, following a technical fault.
