Simulators with outdated software can easily result in negative training, especially for new pilots. The final funding issues are current and projected reductions in flying-hour funding. A reduction in F-15C flying hours was required to free funding for additional DMO-capable systems for other MDSs.

These operations are much less important for air-superiority units and have become less so for multirole fighter units employing standoff weapons, but they could become critical once again for these units as tactics evolve. The final limitation in simulator fidelity for fighter units is the inability to replicate the g-forces exerted on the pilots during normal fighter operations. These forces can reach 9 g, which means that objects in the cockpit, including the internal organs and other body parts of the pilot, are subjected to nine times the forces normally exerted in straight and level flight.
