    This is what I think the General was playing at.

    Distribution of capabilities rather than single assets.
    So in the tanking role we would see KC46 partnered with KC-Z and other assets like KC130J and MC130J as well as perhaps KQ drones and the like.
    Some assets obviously can't operate in high threat so they don't but others can come closer and still others you don't Mind if they get destroyed as much.

    if it was true what you said, it'd mean an increased complexity at operational level

    now if for example two aircraft are shot down, the commander decides if to use the reserve, or abort the mission; with “attritable layer” from Today at 8:22 AM available I wouldn't know what to do LOL OK am just kibitzing

    The operational planning emphasis to my understanding has already shifted from tasking by platform to tasking by effects. This is simply a by product of networked centric warfare where every node is potentially a sensor and a relay point and the driver behind "system of systems". Central to this architecture in my view is communication protocols, security and bandwidth. Currently a lot of assets cannot talk to each other safely and securely in a contested environment. Having a "system of systems' ensure build-in redundancies and a more optimal simultaneity real time distribution of information across the kill chain. I suspect part of the architecture will necessitate by design an information fusion center.
