TACP requirements question

Good afternoon,

I did not see an AFSOC recruitment forum listed on the site, it didnít seem like an appropriate sentiment for the Lounge, and I am interested in entering the TACP pipeline, so I hope it is appropriate enough here for now. My question is regarding color-vision requirements.

Four years ago at MEPS I scored a 10 of 14 on the PIP and passed the FALANT as far as my medical records state. The requirement for the AF for normal color vision as I understand is 12 of 14, and from my research the Armyís is 10 of 14. The recruiters around me have been steadily recruiting Battlefield Airmen since then through today, even with the drawdowns.

I was hoping to gain some insight from the members herein on any situations they have witnessed relatively similar to mine regarding waivers, taking into account my passing of the FALANT and Army standards, or whether Iím incorrect about the lot.

Also, I was curious about if it is possible to retest, because I have read about a new computerized color test being introduced that is much different from the PIP, possibly more accurate. I appreciate the insight available on this site, and thank you in advance for considering answering my questions.
