WEAPONS AND TACTICS PROGRAMS
|Publication Date:||15 October 2014|
This instruction specifies the responsibilities of Air Force Weapons and Tactics Offices, Weapons Officer (WO) management, WO utilization, Weapons Instructor Course (WIC) standup, WIC closure and Air Reserve Component (ARC) agreements. Throughout this instruction, Weapons and Tactics Offices (or their equivalent) are referred to as "weapons shops." Due to the diversity of weapons shops, this instruction provides only common, required actions. Specific programs may require MAJCOM, Numbered Air Force (NAF), Wing, Operations Group (OG) or Squadron supplements to this instruction. Throughout this publication, the USAF Weapons School is abbreviated as "USAFWS" or "WS" and wherever the term MAJCOM is used, it also refers to MAJCOM equivalent organizations where no MAJCOM exists. Additionally, AFSOF will be referred to as "SOF" throughout this document.
