The Air Force Cyber Command (AFCYBER) will “only” be a Numbered Air Force (NAF), not a Major Command (MAJCOM) as previously expected. Maj. Gen. William Lord, commander of 24th Air Force a.k.a.

In a Shreveport Times report, Lord explained, “The numbered air force gives you something that the major command doesn’t and quite frankly that’s the direct connectivity to the combatant commander.” Lord also discussed the size and organization of AFCYBER, which will be subordinate to Air Force Space Command.
