Description: Prior to the BRAC release, SecDef had directed the USAF to transfer the C-130 FTU to the ARC at a ratio of 75%ARC to 25% active BRAC recommendation reflected this intent with 14 C-130Hs and 4 C-130Js to the 189" AW The "J" model buy was cut from 120 to 60 several month ago, but was reinstated in the budget two days before the BRAC recommendation release Prior to reinstating the "J" buy, only four aircraft were needed in the C-130J FTU, hence it is clear the intent of BRAC was to place the C-I 305 FTU in the 189" AW.
