AF Light Air Support Aircraft

Recommended Posts

Light Attack in FY20 NDAA Amendments:

https://rules.house.gov/bill/116/hr-2500

Amendment 73 with 6 FL Republican sponsors (A-29s here we come):

Revised Provides U.S. Special Operations Command procurement authority for Light Attack aircraft in support of the Air Force Special Operations Command (AFSOC) Combat Air Advisor (CAA) mission. It also directs the Secretary of the Air Force to obligate, or transfer to USSOCOM, the necessary funds that have been made available for light attack aircraft to procure the required number of aircraft for Air Combat Command’s Air Ground Operations School and AFSOC’s CAA mission

 

They are already talking part Manned ISR divestiture to man it.

This also could go under the “What’s Wrong With the Air Force” thread considering LA was supposed to fall under the new Rapid Fielding Acquisition process...

FFS AFSOC could have had a couple deployable squadrons CMR with the time and money Big Blue has wasted.

Might but contractors don't do certain things so maybe not.
