However, recent RAND analysis has raised strong concerns about whether the assumption that aircrews can continue their operational development once they meet their weapon system’s experience defini12 As discussed previously, contingency sorties do provide limited amounts of training initially, but the value of the training degrades rapidly with continued repetition. Participating pilots have typically considered the training available from contingency operations for the A/OA-10 to be somewhat more valuable than that available for the other fighters throughout the period depicted.

Gun Cameras and Cockpit Video Recorder. Several models of the primary fighter-bomber of the Vietnam War, the F-4, had no gun camera. Part of the training culture that evolved along with Red Flag, aggressors, and ACMI was the return of the gun camera, followed rapidly by several iterations of video recorders to capture the parameters of a bombing pass or a simulated air-to-air missile firing. Similar to ACMI results, the gun camera showed the pilot his precise position and parameters at simulated or actual weapon release.

6 The sortie pool available to fighter units depends primarily on the units’ aircraft utilization (UTE) rates. UTE rates, which are a measure of maintenance effectiveness, are defined as the average number of sorties a unit flies per airframe per month. 7 Following the post–Southeast Asia drawdown, the average number of training sorties available to the new, and thus less experienced, pilots decreased because the number of operational units was decreased abruptly. This was the problem that led to the implementation of the RDTM system.
