Lt. Gen. Arnold Bunch on Air Force’s Light-Attack Experiment

1 min read

Lt. Gen. Arnold Bunch, military deputy for the office of the assistant secretary of the Air Force for acquisition, has said he has ideas of how the service would move forward with the light-attack experiment, Defense News reported Friday.

“We are planning to broaden the experimentation out and carry the experimentation forward, and I think when our budget hits, you’ll understand more of what we’re doing,” he said Friday at an Air Force Association event.

Bunch said the experiment has helped the service verify the requirement for a light-attack aircraft designed to fight threats posed by violent extremism in a low-cost manner.

He noted that he considers the experiment a success because it enabled the Air Force to build a partnership with industry.

“We learned a lot, and we got to the point where we weren't ready to make a large buy decision at this stage. I still believe that is learning,” Bunch added.
