The Air Combat Command (ACC) has formed a task force that will create a new model to prepare U.S. airmen for strategic missions in highly contested environments, organize aviation units for high-end operations and train forces in the "agile" combat processes.

ACC said Thursday that its Campaign Plan working group will primarily focus on developing a two-year force generation cycle that will consist of four six-month readiness phases.

Gen. Mark Kelly, commander of ACC, noted the plan falls under the U.S. Air Force's “Accelerate Change or Lose” strategy to better understand competitors. The plan centers on organizing, training and equipping expeditionary air combat forces and deploy-in-place airmen.

“Peer competition, crisis and combat does not provide us with ‘months’ to assess and study requirements, execute the RFF (request for forces) process, work sourcing, schedule deployments and eventually become a cohesive team,” Kelly added.
