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.
