The Air Force’s FY15 budget will probably include cuts to platforms as well as personnel. Decisions have to be made on whether to upgrade existing platforms or developing new ones. It is also projected that 22,500 airmen will be cut this year. Previous estimations indicated that number would be 25,000 over a 5-year period, but it looks like the majority will take place this year. The force will be cut via both voluntary and involuntary measures.
