Army National Guard AH-64 Apache battalions are currently equipped at 75% of the requirement to deploy in support of overseas contingency operations. The Army requires all Apache battalions, both Active Component and Army National Guard, to deploy with 24 aircraft each, but Army National Guard battalions are only equipped at 18 aircraft each.
- Designate at least 18 AH-64E aircraft to the Army National Guard within defense appropriations legislation to ensure Army National Guard Apache battalions are equipped at 100% of their operational requirement
