A new policy now allows Airmen to be released from their current jobs in the Air Force to cross-train into the special tactics career fields. This applies to all battlefield Airmen career fields, which includes both conventional and special tactics Airmen. The critically manned career fields for special tactics are special tactics officer (13CX), combat rescue officer (13DX), combat controller (1C2X1), pararescue (1T2X1), and special operations weather (1WOX2). The change also applies to both tactical air control party (1C4X1) and air liaison officer (13LX), but these conventional career fields must first serve as a conventional force before applying for special tactics selection. Airmen who do not pass further initial qualifications will be reinstated into their prior career field without any prejudice.
