In recent years, the Air Force has been criticized for its air superiority capabilities and its inability to keep pace with the advances in military technology.
It’s been criticized by a variety of stakeholders, including lawmakers and the military.
Some members of Congress have questioned the effectiveness of the air force, as well.
A new report by the nonpartisan Congressional Research Service released this week suggests that the Air National Guard has a problem.
Air Force’s air superiority is being challenged by a number of different sources of military power, including the emergence of advanced unmanned aircraft systems, advanced sensors, new platforms, and the rapid advances in sensor technology,” CRS’ Michael A. Dittmer and Steven F. Shear write in the report, which analyzes how the military is dealing with all of these changes.
The report argues that the air power deployed by the Air Forces of the United States is inadequate.
Dittmer writes that “the Air Force is failing to meet the challenges of future warfare,” and “the U. S. military is not ready to meet new threats.”
The report also says the Air Guard is failing in its mission of training and equipping the nation’s air forces, and that the “service’s modernization program is a failure, and is likely to lead to a return to a ‘tactical’ approach to air combat in the years ahead.”
The report is the latest in a series of reports that have criticized the Air force and its leaders.
In July, the Department of Defense released a report that criticized the service’s decision to put $3.7 billion into the National Guard to increase the size of the National Airspace System.
That same month, a Congressional Research service report said that the military has spent more than $6 billion on modernization programs since 2003.
