This is an analysis of the information provided by the Services and reported in the Fiscal Year 1985 Force Readiness Report Volume II Annex, National Guard and Reserve Equipment. The Annex was forwarded to the Congress on 15 February 1984, with a Supplement provided on 1 March 1984. The analysis satisfies the Annex requirement for a summary analysis provided by the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Reserve Affairs. The analysis is performed exclusively from data input by the Services to the Annex. It must be emphasized from the outset that this analysis must not be construed as representing a complete picture of the equipment status of the respective Guard and Reserve Components. While the Annex contains most if not all of the major high-cost items of equipment, it is by no means a complete listing of all Guard and Reserve equipment. For example, the Army Reserve Components report less than 300 items of equipment in the Annex yet the Army inventory consists of approximately 10, 000 major items of equipment. Ammunition, spares, repair parts, some tools and test sets, i.e., those items of equipment normally considered in bulk as opposed to separate line entries, also are excluded from Annex reporting.
