The Issue

The Air National Guard continues to operate legacy C–130H aircraft, with the Air Force procuring new C–130J aircraft.

Recommendation

  • Appropriate and authorize funds for C–130H propeller, engine, and avionics upgrades.
  • Continue to appropriate funding increases for the National Guard and Reserve Equipment Account (NGREA), which maintains the readiness and force relevance of Air National Guard equipment and weapons systems.
  • Continue recapitalization of C–130J aircraft.
