Abstract:

The ARC has proven itself as a very capable, efficient, and experienced force that also happens to have strong political support which generally translates into resourcing. There is considerable supporting evidence that the USAF should stop trying to regress to its previous Cold War construct and take bold steps toward a better future by making better use of the ARC. However, the USAF appears to be fully invested in a linear solution to its problems and it is very doubtful it will reverse current trends unless directed.
