Does anyone know the different MAF DT vectors for Maj (s) and their corresponding percentages?

You mean as in OSD vector infers sub 1 percentile?

Tell you this much that hopefully already know: The realistic percentages that can actually fulfill those vectors do not match the actual capability/quantity of billets

So, thresholds are typically inferred as <1%, 2-5%, 10%, 25-30% and...Wing Staff. There is a few conflicting slides/numbers floating around functionals' webpages. And your right, seems MAJCOMs infer different numbers

A1K and the functionals posted slides on the MAF Mentoring Facebook within the  last week that has the breakdown.

I don’t understand a lot, but DT Vectors is one I have never understood. What’s the point?

It is another way to get an “across the board” unofficial stratification early in your career (first vector as Major-select).  Ensures we keep our bottom of the barrel-scrapping officers from being considered for joint jobs (can only go one up & one down).  Also serves to start delineating who truly has the potential to become an HPO.  Learn the system, folks!

We’ve missed you Chang. And as one of those “barrel-scrapers” vectored for MAJCOM staff, it would have been nice to have someone in a position of leadership explain the rules. The vast majority of us don’t ever get the secret decoder ring brief.

Yes...and shockingly, got picked up 1 APZ with a 5/10 push line and P on the PRF.

Sometimes there is justice in the system.

Also got picked up.  Definitely relieved....the 20 and out plan remains unchanged.  

Congrats!  Same story for me, although after telling me I was picked up my CC said “I know you had a grand plan but making rank tends to change things.”  Not for me...still putting my family first and still getting out at 20.

This gave me a good laugh....I went into O-5 thinking responsibility would increase. I’ve not had less responsibilities since I was a captain. Being off the command track as an O-5 is magical.

#1/4 Majors deployed and #6/25 Majors

#22/150 Majors

#7/160 Majors

no strat

#3/7 Majors

Anyone know if it’s possible to Palace Chase a bonus commitment? I took the bonus expecting to either make it or be passed over IPZ and 1APZ and be a free agent, but with the new system I guess I have four more IPZ “No’s” awaiting me.

FWIW, I took the bonus to 20 then got passed over. I then tried palace chasing before I was twice passed over as I wasn’t sure if I would be offered continuation and was denied palace chase due to low manning in my career field. I could be wrong but you may still be able to deny continuation and get out. I’d definitely verify that with AFPC if you end up getting passed over twice but if you do nothing the continuation paperwork should spell out everything.  That was 2 years ago so YMMV depending on your MDS manning, etc.

Yeah, the issue is with the new promotion system. This was my first of five IPZ looks. I won’t be APZ until I’m at 18+ years.
