Concurrent Fielding of F–35, KC–46 aircraft to Air National Guard Units

To maintain equipment and training parity with the active component, new F–35 and KC–46 aircraft should continue to be fielded to Air National Guard units.


  • In fiscal 2019, continue designating F–35 and KC–46 aircraft to the Air National Guard to ensure it operates concurrently with the active component.
