Build to a total force of 26 squadrons to equip all F, G and H model B-52s.

* To support SAC only including PACCS. (Being serviced)

PART V. To summarize, from today through FY 66, the most significant improvement in force capability can be obtained through increased B-52s, KC-135s and Minuteman. In the post -66 period, the most significant improvement in capability can be attained through integration of the RSB-70 and a continued build-up of the Minuteman force. I would also like to emphasize that space systems will provide a revolutionary advance in strategic capabilities and our R&D effort in this direction should be accelerated. A detailed briefing has been developed to support this force position and is available for presentation at your convenience. SCP-4.
