Nice information, thank you! Nice to see that Finnish companies are involved with this kind of activities. I know Varjo has really good products, probably one of the very best in their field.

Lockheed Martin also uses their products for simulation systems:

Rafales coo, "Look at me... sleek, sexy, beeyooootiful curves..."

Panthers growl, "I'm hungry, let's eat something..."
Take an F-16, stir in A-7, dollop of F-117, gob of F-22, dash of F/A-18, sprinkle with AV-8B, stir well + bake. Whaddya get? F-35.

I saw this on another site. I haven't been following it much. It's said to be $125m turn key.

France begins backfilling its Rafale fleet after selling some to Greece
Contracts to Dassault Aviation, Safran (the engine manufacturer) and Thales (the electronics) will be sent out by the DGA procurement agency in the next few days. While no price tag was given during Parly’s announcement, Trappier has previously said one fully equipped fighter costs around 100 million euros, or $121 million, which would put the total package at just under $1.5 billion.
