AC/RC CAB and BCT
Restructure Plan
RC Formations generally cost 1/3 of what the AC costs. This plan has 2 ARNG Bdes per AC Bde or a 1/3 – 2/3 ratio

Aviation Proposal
National Guard
BCT Proposal
•Reduce number of Combat Aviation
Brigades from 21 to 18 (6 AC to 12
ARNG) as opposed to the AC plan to
cut from 21 to 10 – Saves 8 CABs
•Saves nearly $3 Billion more annually
than the AC’s proposed plan
•Saves almost $4 Billion annually from
the current Army Aviation Structure
•Reduce number of Brigade Combat
Teams from 62 to 54 (18 AC to 36
ARNG) as opposed to the DoD plan to
cut from 62 to 46 – Saves 8 BCTs
•Saves over $400 Million more
annually than the DoD proposed plan
•Saves almost $4 Billion annually
from the current Army BCT Structure
Plan Saves $7.62 Billion/year
And over $38 Billion/5 years

CAB Restructure Proposal
AC CAB Structure
• A/C Transfer 4 CABs to ARNG
• A/C Decommissions 3 CABs - retains 6 CABs
• A/C CAB retains 24 X AH-64E for each of 4 CABs
• A/C CAB retains 48 X AH-64E for each of 2 CABs
• Maintain the OH-58 Fleet until replacement is fielded
• One UAS Company in CAB formation
• TH-67 remains IERW Training Aircraft until replacement
trainer procured

• ARNG sustains a 4 year ARFORGEN Cycle
(Reset, TY1, TY2, Ready)
• 3 CABs/year home station validation by State
HQ with 1st Army oversight.
• During Ready Year, 3 CABs available for
immediate deployment to the AOR
• 3 ARNG CABs Ready combined with 6 AC CABs
provides 50% of force available, 50% in reserve
• Guard Maintains LUH-72 in 2 HD/S&S Bdes
• One UAS Battalion in CAB formation
• Home Station Validation and Mobilization
provide major additional cost savings per year

o
AVIATION CONCEPT = $3.85B/year
6 x Active Component CABs, 4 each with 1 ARB , 2 each with 2 ARB , total 8 ARB with 24 each AH-64E = 192 total
12 x ARNG CABs, 8 each with 1 ARB, 4 each with 2ARB , total 16 ARB with 24 each AH-64E = 384 total
Total AH-64E in CABs (AC/RC) 576, remaining fleet of 124 AH-64 for IERW and ORF
Plan maintains 24 of 25 current ARBs all with AH-64E and 24 per ARB
New CABs – KYARNG, NCARNG, ARARNG, and WAARNG (Convert from Theater Commands)
Retain 2x HD/S&S in the ARNG and 2 X USAR Theater Commands
Deactivate 1st, 12th and 25th CABs
Only deactivating the 1-25 ARB, all other ARBs from deactivating CABs transfer to ARNG (8)
• Retain all OH-58D until replacement aircraft is procured, savings by this plan could eventually pay for new armed scout
• Conduct study of the need for manned, low-level, rotary wing reconnaissance vs. UAS teamed with AH-64E from ARB
• Retain all S&S structure (212 UH-72s) in ARNG, savings by this plan could allow Army to solve its Training Helicopter deficiency

Proposed Plan
o 62 Current BCT: 34 AC, 28 ARNG – DoD/CAPE would reduce to 46 BCT: 24 AC, 22 ARNG
o ARNG Proposes to only draw down to 54 BCT, 18 in AC, 36 in ARNG
o Plan correlates to 1 CAB per 3 BCTs
o Move ARFORGEN Cycle to 4 years for ARNG BCTs like that for ARNG CABs (Reset ,Train 1, Train 2, Ready)
o Plan allows for 50% of total force to be available (18 AC and 9 ARNG in Ready Year) other 50% in Reserve
TOTAL CONCEPT = $7.62B/year or $38.1B/5 years
