        (2)  FAC 2 (Units at 100% strength) - No Live-fire requirements except if the aviator’s primary aircraft has an attack or armed reconnaissance mission, will successfully complete the applicable table annually.  All AH-1 and AH-64 aviators will conduct gunnery exercises in their compatible simulator (if required to fly the simulator).

        (3)  FAC 2 (Units not at 100% strength) - Aviators may participate in live-fire at the commanders discretion.

        (4)  FAC 3 - No live-fire gunnery requirements.  FAC 3 aviators that fly the AH-1 or AH-64 simulators will successfully complete applicable Tables annually.

        (6)  After completing gunnery the aviator remains certified for 12 full calendar
