    What is the Air Force cutting?
    -17 B-1s
    -24 Block 2 and 3 Global Hawks (but buying 5 E-11As over next 5 years)
    -44 A-10s
    -16 KC-10s
    -13 KC-135s
    -24 C-130Hs (but getting 19 Js)


    The best bit is the cut in KC-135 tankers when their new KC-46 tanker ain't working and won't for years to come.

    Utterly insane.
    DoD and combatant commanders have made clear that

    1) they don’t (and won’t) have sufficient A/R resources
    2) KC-46 isn’t ready
    3) 179 KC-46s ≠ 440 KC-135s
    4) AF needs 13 new tanker sqds

    So, yeah, let’s cut KC-135s
