Behind the scenes of foreign military sales: AFSAC helps international partners overcome airpower supply shortages

Recently, AFSAC worked with a key international partner nation to clear more than a dozen Not Mission Capable Supply cases which inhibited the foreign partner’s aircraft from performing identified missions.
