All Warfare Roads Lead to Nellis: The Air Force is forging ahead with plans to consolidate development of operational and tactical capabilities in a single warfare center—the Air Force Warfare Center at Nellis AFB, Nev. The center started life in 1966 as the Tactical Fighter Weapons Center, but the service changed its name in 2005 to "reflect the new and broadened focus of its mission," reports SMSgt. Matt Proietti. The service called together senior leaders last week for another of its new summits to consider what's left to do as the center absorbs work once done at other warfare centers around the Air Force. Gen. Michael Moseley, Chief of Staff, declared: "In the past, each [major command] had a warfare center. We now have one warfare center. It makes sense in terms of warfighting." However, he also noted that "a constrained fiscal environment" necessitates such streamlining efforts.
