Air Combat Command plans to be ?training more, then training better?

With the Air Force?s shift toward preparing for a potential fight against a ?great power? nation such as Russia or China, Air Combat Command will have to continue making adjustments.

Among the biggest will be overhauling how its pilots and other airmen train, said Gen. Mike Holmes, the ACC commander, in an Aug. 28 interview.

In January 2017, ACC leaders reconsidered how the command measures the potential threats it could face, and whether its airmen are ready. For two decades, ACC ? like much of the rest of the military ? has focused on foes such as the Islamic State and Taliban. Now, the command has expanded its ?threat matrix process? to take into account the threats that North Korea, Iran, Russia or China present.
