A U.S. Air Force F-16 Fighting Falcon pilot assigned to the 55th Expeditionary Fighter Squadron waits on the flight line during a hot pit refueling operation as part of an Agile Combat Employment exercise at an undisclosed location, Dec. 21, 2021. ACE is an operational concept that leverages networks of well-established and austere air bases, multi-capable Airmen, pre-positional equipment, and airlift to rapidly deploy, disperse and maneuver combat capability throughout a theater. Paired with aircraft refueling, arming and limited maintenance activities, ACE expands the number of bases from which air forces can generate combat sorties. (US Air Force photo by Staff Sgt.
