Default J-Day

Today is the day the 130- J models are to be assigned to the guard units in the running for them. Does anyone have any good rumors?

It used to be that there were two kinds of Guard units. Those that flew tankers and those that would soon. Big AF has decided that was too good a deal. So... now itís those that fly predators and those that will become an intel squadron to analyze predator video feed. Just ask the Kansas Guard at McConnell. From fighters to bones to tankers to an intel unit in less than twenty years.

This J-model decision is starting to remind me of the Boeing/Airbus tanker decision of a decade ago.

You are not. I was hopeful to join one of the units that did not receive the J. Now Iím worried about their mission moving forward. Brutal
