Anyway, Wurster explained AFSOC's modernization priorities. So here they are:
1. Replace 37 MC-130s. Wurster said they would all be replaced with the C-130J, but USAF has told me there could be a competition.
2. Accelerate plan to acquire all 50 CV-22s by 2017.
3. Acquire 16 C-27Js in next 6 or 7 years.
4. Improve theater mobility. AFSOC now operates 19 U-28s and leases four Dash-8s.
5. Fully develop Predator/Reaper capability.
