I'm gonna take a swing at this and guess that we're loading the dugout so that the shiny pennies can go to the new hotness in the next 3-5 years.

Also to replace all of the dudes jumping to the airlines.

When will we see KC-46 drops?

We probably need a KC-46 first.

There has been a rumor that they'll be on the next drop since I was in UPT back in 2013, so your guess is as good as anyones.

What gives on the E-3 in 38s? There's got to be a story behind that one.

CAF heavy planes drop to T-38s. Some people are unlucky, some didn't do well enough.

Heavy in CAF has been around a while, but an E-3 is a bit of a kick in the nuts. Unlucky is an understatement. I'm thinking multiple DUIs and caught with a tranny prostitute.

FY18 is a new animal. We have 3/7 going to ACC heavies. They told us 1-2 fighter and no AMC

Well it's not quite, everybody gets a MQ-9 bad but it's definitely not FY17 good where everyone and their mother was getting a fighter.

AMC got tired of sending T-38 trained dudes back to UPT. With bottlenecks at fighter FTUs, in steps AFSOC and ISR to replace the void.

Don't we have to fix the current crisis before the pendulum swings back again?

Lol my bad, I should have clarified (though I've now looked it up and realized how retarded it was).  I was thinking 1-2 fighters per drop for 38's, and the rest being 130's, FAIPs, or U-28's, and then no AMC for the T1 guys, but I didn't realize tankers were part of AMC.

Uhh what?

Oh, this could get rich.

You have no idea what you are talking about, at all.

You're old enough to drink, you're on this forum, and you didn't know tankers were AMC.  Much to learn have you.  I recommend less output and more input.

No, you're right.  I'll own it.  I should have put down the beer and google'd it before posting.  For some reason I thought AMC was only C-17's, C-5's, C-21's, and a few others I'm sure I'm forgetting.  Thought tankers were their own thing.

A SAC warrior at heart, that's all. NBD.

Reading through the posts, I'm somewhat shocked by the JSTARS, but the ACC heavies thing does make sense. Is this a long-term strategy, to make all ACC heavies go through T-38s or are they still going to drop those from T-1s as well?

They’re dropping from T-1s primarily. As a T-38 student now in JSTARS, I can tell you almost none of the 38 syllabus carries over into this airframe. They don’t even let us talk on the radio while “monitoring the autopilot” 🙄

I think if you’re flying you should talk on the radio.  I’m curious why people teach/practice the other way.  


Standard in the Herk community. Although after doing this for a while, it does get annoying to have to (for example) tell the co “tell them we’re ready for lower” when you’re PF and want to descend.
