INTRODUCTION
Welcome everyone to the new and improved United States Air Force mod. This mod is a representation of the United States of America's Air Force. The United States Air Force (USAF) is the aerial warfare service branch of the United States Armed Forces and one of the seven American uniformed services. Initially part of the United States Army, the USAF was formed as a separate branch of the military on 18 September 1947 under the National Security Act of 1947.It is the most recent branch of the U.S. military to be formed, and is the largest and one of the world's most technologically advanced air forces. The USAF articulates its core functions as Nuclear Deterrence Operations, Special Operations, Air Superiority, Global Integrated ISR, Space Superiority, Command and Control, Cyberspace Superiority, Personnel Recovery, Global Precision Attack, Building Partnerships, Rapid Global Mobility and Agile Combat Support.

Notes from the Author
This is a upgrade of last year's release. Our initial release in my opinion was plagued with bugs and errors. We have gone through this mod with a fine comb to obliterate all or atleast 98% of the issues. We are comfortable with a release of all of the assets in this mod and hope that it will be to the benefit of the community as well as we hope to see them in various online missions or used with Clans. I want to remind everyone that this mod is still very much in Alpha!!! moving into Beta!!

Personal Notes and Useful Tips:
1. All Heavy Transports should be taken off with Full Flaps to avoid damage
2. Osprey in Real life lands VTOL style(HINT HINT)
3. I am still looking into have the UAVs fly at sea level instead of terrain lvl.
4. For the pilots if you are using ACE/AGM use the earplugs it will help with hearing communications.
5. Thank you all for using my mod..still have not seen nice lil movies involving them :)

6. When using the B-1 Service menu you should always add the Sniper Pod if you dont it will result in a bomb being loaded where the pod is supposed to be loaded. I am looking for a fix

7. DO NOT Fire all of the CBU-100 or 103 all together. It will result in serious lag(B1 and B2)

8.
