......“There were so many pieces and parts to the plan    , we could probably sit here for weeks and guess on the depth and how far along we were,” Wolters said. “But in all those cases, there were branches and sequels with multiple options. So, I will just tell you that the new administration has comfortably stated to us that we need to conduct a thorough review, cradle to grave, in all areas. And then after they’re allowed to conduct that review, we’ll go back to the drawing board.”....

A proposito della sicurezza nelle basi dell'USAF ... :hmm:

Quote

Acting Air Force Secretary John P. Roth and USAF Chief of Staff Gen. Charles Q. Brown Jr. ordered the Air Force Inspector General to conduct a “comprehensive review of installation security and trends” following the Feb. 4 breach at Joint Base Andrews, Md., in which an unarmed civilian man made his way onto a C-40B aircraft before being apprehended, the department said in a statement.
“We are still gathering information and facts, but we can assure you, installation security is of critical importance to the Department of the Air Force,” according to the statement.
The review will cover Air and Space Force installations across the globe, Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby noted during a Feb. 5 press briefing. 
It is the second deep-dive into USAF base security practices since 2017.
The Air Force leaders have also ordered the IG to investigate the breach itself.

Missioni all'estero prolungate di un anno ...

Quote

Single Airmen and Guardians on their first duty assignments to 22 locations in the Pacific and Europe will now have to pack their bags for a longer stay—beginning next month, those tours will last three years instead of two.
The Department of the Air Force announced the policy change to a 36-month overseas posting for first-timers on Feb. 11.
Affected locations include: RAF Mildenhall, United Kingdom; RAF Lakenheath, U.K.;  RAF Alconbury, U.K.; RAF Croughton, U.K.; London, RAF Menwith Hill, U.K.; RAF Fairford, U.K.; RAF Welford, U.K.; RAF Molesworth, U.K.; Aviano Air Base, Italy; Stavenger Air Base, Norway; Ramstein Air Base, Germany; Kaiserslautern, Germany; Sembach, Germany; Vogelweh, Germany; Landstuhl, Germany; Kapaun, Germany; Einsiedlerhof, Germany; Spangdahlem Air Base, Germany; Kadena Air Base, Japan; Misawa Air Base, Japan; and Yokota Air Base, Japan.
Previously, troops would stay in those assignments for 24 months. 
But Air Force officials said two years isn’t enough time to settle in.

Il trionfo del 'politicamente corretto' ... :hmm:

Quote

Defense Department and congressional leaders on Feb. 12 announced eight appointees to the bipartisan commission tasked with renaming military bases that bear the monikers of Confederate leaders.
Congress, in the fiscal 2021 National Defense Authorization Act, called on the Pentagon to begin the process of removing homages to Confederate leaders, like Fort Bragg, N.C., and Fort Hood, Texas. 
Lawmakers created the panel despite a disagreement on the issue with former President Donald J. Trump that threatened to derail the legislation altogether.

Un velivolo di generazione intermedia (“fourth-and-a half/fifth-gen minus”) nel futuro dell'USAF ...

Quote

Although he acknowledged that former Air Force acquisition chief Will Roper opened the possibility of buying more F-16s for this purpose, Brown waved away that idea. 
The F-16, he said, lacks open mission systems capability, and gets operational flight program updates - new software - too infrequently. 
The aircraft was designed in the 1970s, and he is more interested in a “clean sheet design,” which he referred to as a “fourth-and-a half/fifth-gen minus” aircraft. 
The TacAir study will decide just what is needed, and in what numbers.
The study will parallel Defense Secretary Lloyd J. Austin III’s Global Posture Review, and the two assessments will “inform” each other.

E' in preparazione un'importante esercitazione fra gli Stati Uniti ed alcuni paesi europei interessati alle zone artiche ...

Quote

Acting Air Force Secretary John P. Roth and the defense leaders of five other Arctic nations signed a letter of intent supporting one of the continent’s largest air exercises and outlining additional steps to expand collaboration.
The letter - signed by Roth and the defense ministers of Denmark, Finland, Norway, and Sweden - continues the Arctic Challenge Exercise, which was last held in 2019 and included more than 140 aircraft and 4,000 troops from nine countries. 
The letter also expands on the Air Force’s first-ever Arctic Strategy, released last summer. 
The strategy called for increased interoperability with key allies in the region, according to a Feb. 18 release.
“We have a common vision and shared set of values in upholding security and stability in the Arctic region,” Roth said in the release. 
“Strong, enduring relationships with our allies and partners are essential to safeguarding peace in the region.”
The next iteration of the biennial exercise will be in June.

A proposito del ventilato trasferimento del quartier generale dello U.S. Space Command in Alabama ... potrebbero esservi, in futuro, nuove e differenti decisioni ...

Quote

The Department of Defense Office of Inspector General will review the Department of the Air Force’s decision to base U.S. Space Command headquarters at Redstone Arsenal, Ala., according to a Feb. 19 memo.
The choice of the Army’s Redstone Arsenal - green-lighted provided it passes an environmental review - has already raised objections.
Business groups and elected officeholders from Colorado released statements in January and February criticizing the selection, questioning why the process was stopped and then restarted, and claiming they had inside information that former President Donald J. Trump had personally intervened, slighting their state.
The review will gauge how well the Air Force “complied with DOD and Air Force policies during the location selection process; used objective and relevant scoring factors to rank the six candidate locations; and calculated costs and other scoring factors accurately and consistently,” wrote Assistant Inspector General Randolph R. Stone in the memo addressed to Acting Secretary John P. Roth.

Around the world ...

The Bomber Task Force concept is a great success, Global Strike Command chief Gen. Timothy M. Ray said Feb. 25. 
Bombers will go to new places in the coming months, and the annual pace of such deployments is likely to stay high, he told reporters at a press conference during Air Force Association’s virtual Aerospace Warfare Symposium.
The Air Force sent BTFs to India and Norway in recent weeks and will be “expanding beyond the normal” bomber deployment locations such as Fairford, U.K.; Diego Garcia; Moron, Spain; and Guam, Ray said. 
A recent deployment of two B-1Bs to Prince Sultan AB, Saudi Arabia “was a very effective statement,” he observed, “about what we can do, broadly” around the world.

Retaliation ...

Quote

Two USAF F-15E Strike Eagles conducted the Feb. 25 strike on infrastructure used by Iranian-linked militias in Syria, dropping seven precision-guided munitions on a border crossing complex in a move designed to send a message in the region, the Pentagon said.
The F-15E strike destroyed nine facilities near the Abu Kamal border crossing with Iraq and damaged two more in the complex, Defense Department spokesman John Kirby told reporters Feb. 26. 
The complex is an “entry control point” that the militias, Kait’ib Hezbollah and Kait’ib Sayyid al-Shuhada, used to bring weapons and fighters into Iraq.
President Joe Biden ordered the strike the morning of Feb. 25 ...

Ancora a proposito della sicurezza nelle basi dell'USAF ...

A complacent defender failed to prevent an intruder from accessing Joint Base Andrews, Md., on Feb. 4, the Air Force Inspector General found. 
In a report released March 11, the IG said the intruder came upon a malfunctioning gate and, because of other Airmen’s mistakes, accessed the Andrews flight line and boarded a C-40B aircraft assigned to the 89th Airlift Wing.

L'eventuale, futuro successore dello F-16?
Chiamiamolo ... F-36 Kingsnake ...

Quote

Last month, U.S. Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. C.Q. Brown caused a stir when he announced the service was looking into buying a brand-new fighter jet to help replace the F-16 Viper. 
Such a jet doesn’t exist - yet - but thanks to new digital engineering techniques, it could actually enter service before 2030.
Now, the alternative aviation magazine Hush-Kit has brought experts together to design that potential F-16 replacement. 
The result: the F-36 Kingsnake lightweight fighter.

To fly, fight, and win … Airpower anytime, anywhere” ...

Quote

The Air Force’s new mission statement is familiar, all-encompassing, and joins two parallel aspects of the service’s 74-year history: “To fly, fight, and winAirpower anytime, anywhere.”
The new mission statement focuses on air alone, now that the Space Force is independent, and emerged from consultations with a spectrum of Airmen representing Active, Guard, and Reserve members in both the enlisted and officer ranks, said Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Charles Q. Brown Jr. ...
