NOTE: PMAI = primary mission aircraft inventory.
a Includes the active and reserve component inventories. The numbers shown reflect only combat support and industrial–funded PMAI aircraft; development/test and training aircraft are excluded.
b Includes 37 KC–10s allocated for airlift missions.
c Does not include Department of the Navy aircraft.
d Includes fast sealift (FSS), afloat prepositioning, and common–user (charter) ships, plus (through FY 1998) aviation support ships. From
FY 1999 on, includes large, medium–speed roll–on/roll–off (LMSR) vessels and Ready Reserve Force (RRF) ships tendered to the Military Sealift Command (MSC). All of the ships (except for the surge LMSR and FSS vessels) are in full operational status; the FSS ships and surge LMSRs are available on four days’ notice.
e The RRF includes vessels assigned to 4–, 5–, 10–, 20–, or 30–day reactivation readiness status. The ship counts shown exclude RRF vessels tendered to the MSC for use in the prepositioning program. Inventory figures for FY 1999, FY 2000, and FY 2001 include aviation support ships.
f The decline in the RRF inventory in FY 2002 reflects the retirement of older breakbulk ships that had been retained pending delivery of the majority of the LMSRs.
