Episode 17 – The Merge: Bomber Task Force Missions, Jointness Under Attack, and Modernization Choices

Episode Summary:

The Mitchell Institute is pleased to release episode 17 of its Aerospace Advantage podcast: The Merge: Bomber Taskforce Missions, Jointness Under Attack, and Modernization Choices. Join Mitchell Institute experts for a roundtable discussion to explore the impact of Global Strike’s bomber task force missions; a showdown that is emerging between the services regarding the principles underpinning jointness; and whether 2021 will see the Air Force seek to retire more aircraft in a quest to free up resources for modernization. This a chance for you to hear about the key aerospace issues that are making headlines in Washington DC and beyond. Our goal here is to cut past the sound bites and provide you insight regarding the underlying issues at play.
