The entire Lockheed Martin team is proud to launch Prepar3D v5 after more than two years since our last major release. Prepar3D v5 is a foundation release and first step in the development of an all new platform built for next generation simulation and training. Beyond our traditional flight simulator roots, Prepar3D v5 is better positioned to deliver multi-domain simulation and training exercises including live, virtual, and constructive (LVC) training where realism is critical.
