USAF Mission Statement: BOMB EVERYONE!

Organisation which operates the majority of the USA's fixed wing and airlift aircraft such as the B-1 Lancer.

Formed from the US Army Air Corps in 1941 (sort of), it took till 1947 before Congressional disestablishment of the Army Air Corps resulted in the USAF.

Seems dedicated to bombing its own side and allies in preference to the enemy. This habit has a long history with the most famous friendly fire 'incident' being that in 1944 General George Patton threatened to take the 3rd Army out of the line, turn it round 180' and blow up the 8th Army Air Force's airbases if they didn't stop bombing Patton's men. Oddly, things did improve after that threat.

Can be relied upon to slot allies in any given theatre and have the recognition skills of a crabstick on remedial recognition.

Currently attempting to bankrupt the USA because they 'need' the F-22 Raptor and the B-2_Stealth rather than just soldiering on with the F-15 and the B-52.

2014 update : With the export ban on the F-22 and B-2, bankruptcy strategy has been redirected to the F-35 because this offers the potential to take the UK, Italy, Australia, Turkey, Israel down with them... a no-brainer really.
