NOTES:
PMAI = primary mission aircraft inventory. Denotes aircraft authorized to combat units for performance of their basic missions; excludes aircraft maintained for other purposes, such as training, testing, attrition replacements, and reconstitution reserves.
[a] Two air wings will maintain a second F-14 squadron in place of a third F/A-18 squadron until those squadrons transition to the F/A-18E in 2001 and 2002. Sources disagree as to whether these F-14 squadrons retain the 10 aircraft per squadron of the Power Projection Wing, or whether the total number of aircraft per squadron varies between 10 and the 14 of the Littoral Wing squadrons.
[b] The reserve air wing includes 48 PMAI F/A-18s, operated by three Naval Reserve squadrons (36 aircraft) and one Marine Corps Reserve squadron (12 aircraft). From 1995 on, the reserve air wing of F-14 (14 PMAI) and F/A-18s included 36 PMAI F/A-18s, operated by two Navy Reserve squadrons (24 PMAI) and one Marine Reserve squadron (12 PMAI).
[c] Total PMAI shown consists only of Navy F-14s, F/A-18s, and A-6s. The Marine Corps provides sufficient active F/A-18 squadrons to ensure 36 PMAI F/A-18s per deployed carrier air wing (actual numbers based on operating tempo requirements of each Service as determined by the Department of the Navy Tactical Aircraft Consolidation Plan).
