AH–64 Apache Battalions Equipped at 24 Aircraft

THE ISSUE
Active-component battalions are fully equipped at 24 aircraft and Army National Guard Apache battalions are equipped at 18 aircraft. That means that in today’s complicated global-threat environment, the Army Guard is operating at 75 percent of its equipping requirement.

RECOMMENDATION

  • In fiscal 2019, appropriate 24 AH–64 aircraft to the Army National Guard to ensure Guard AH–64 battalions are operating at 100 percent equipping requirement.
