This Note examines U.S. Air Force policy on the basing of tactical fighter aircraft.

The study was motivated by performance concerns. Readiness problems associated with newly fielded systems are relevant to both combat effectiveness and public perception. When new equipment comes into the Army, it is often fielded on a unit-by-unit basis. This is true whether fielding an entirely new weapon system like the M777 light-weight howitzer or an upgrade of a weapon system such as the CRO......
