Title: Force Composition, continued

Action: Screen begins with fighter planes in the background, flying in formation. The first of the following bullets is showing high screen center.

Voice: AEFs are paired to define the level of deployment the Air Force can sustain over time. This sustainable commitment is measured in terms of combat power, independent expeditionary combat support deployments, and the number of forward operating locations that can be supported. AEFs themselves do not deploy.

Action: The second bullet and sub-bullets are shown in support of the narration.

Voice: Deployable elements of the AEFs are the Air and Space Expeditionary wings, groups, and squadrons.
