The purpose of the Proposed Action is to support agreements between the U. S. Government and one of its foreign allies. The Singapore Ministry of Defense and RSAF have submitted a Letter of Request to establish a Foreign Military Sales F-15SG squadron based in the continental United States CONUS. The Chief of Staff of the Air Force and Secretary of the Air Force for International Affairs have agreed to offer the RSAF a CONUS basing option and Headquarters Air Combat Command ACC selected the 366th Fighter Wing at Mountain Home AFB, Idaho, for this relationship. This combined military capability permits substantial reductions in each nations military force, while also creating the larger force necessary to respond to international requirements. This philosophy establishes a need for military personnel of different nations to achieve a common high standard of training and proficiency and to forge the strongest possible team. The proposal would permit the RSAF to construct operations and maintenance facilities necessary for the flight training of their aircrews. Under both the Proposed Action, the RSAF beddown, and Alternative A, the modified RSAF beddown, the RSAF would beddown and operate 10 F-15SG aircraft, add required personnel, and construct and remodel facilities. Several facility projects at Mountain Home AFB are required to support the beddown of the RSAF squadron. A total of 13 construction, modification, or infrastructure improvement projects directly related to the beddown would be implemented from 2007 to 2009. In total, the construction, modifications, and infrastructure improvements would affect about 112,567 square feet of building space. The modified proposal differs in the location of construction, demolition, and remodeling of facilities at Mountain Home AFB. Under the Proposed Action, RSAF facilities would be integrated near the northern portion of the base.
