44

The US Air Force has returned to its expeditionary roots in the way it organizes itself and presents its forces—via an air and space expeditionary task force (AETF). Why has this shift occurred? (2)

2. scaled back overseas basing from the end of the cold war

45

An _________ by definition is one that can conduct military operations on short notice in response to crises with forces tailored to achieve limited and clearly stated objectives.

46

The basic building block used in force planning and the deployment of AETFs is the:

47

A _______ depicts a force capability with personnel and/or equipment requirements.

UTC

48

The assignment of a _______ categorizes each type organization into a class or kind of unit having common distinguishing characteristics.

UTC

49

The codes associated with UTCs identify what that specific UTC is postured to do. This is to ensure:

all UTCs are not coded the same eliminating the possibility that no forces would remain at home stations to perform that mission

50

_____ codes are assigned to all UTCs.

posturing codes (P-codes)
