The digital transformation in naval aviation over the past ten years has prompted significant changes to the challenges of flying strike aircraft. Technology in the newest generation of aircraft makes flying easier, but mission multitasking puts greater demands on a pilot's ability to absorb more information in a high-stress environment, correctly interpret that information, and make a decision. As a good example of the advantages offered by up-to-date technology, consider the improvements the T-45C and its digital cockpit brought to strike training. Using the heads-up display (HUD) with the velocity vector over the target and the HUD pitch ladder to fly the proper dive angle, the students' improvement is impressive.
