Summary
DOD used nearly 700 aircraft, as well as commercial and leased aircraft, to carry about 3 million troops and 800,000 tons of cargo in support of wartime, peacetime, and humanitarian efforts in 2008. C-5s and C-17s move troops and cargo internationally (strategic airlift) and C-130s are the primary aircraft that moves them within a theater of operation (tactical airlift). Over the next 4 years, DOD plans to spend about $12 billion to modernize and procure airlifters and is currently studying how many it needs. GAO was asked to (1) identify the status of DOD's modernization and acquisition efforts and (2) determine how well DOD is addressing any capability gaps and redundancies. In conducting this work, GAO identified the cost, schedule, and performance of airlift programs, as well as DOD's plan for addressing gaps and redundancies. GAO also discussed mobility study efforts with DOD, Institute for Defense Analysis (IDA), and RAND officials. GAO recommends, among other things, that DOD broaden the scope of its portfolio discussions, determine if additional C-17s are needed, and determine how Army direct support requirements will be met. DOD partially concurred with the recommendations, citing they have ongoing plans or processes to address the issues raised. As discussed in the report, GAO believes DOD needs to take additional steps to fully respond to the recommendations
