Gen. Hawk Carlisle, current commander of Pacific Air Forces, has been nominated to be the next commander of Air Combat Command, the Pentagon announced Tuesday.

Carlisle, if confirmed, would replace current ACC commander Gen. Mike Hostage, who is retiring.

The Pentagon also announced that ACC vice commander Lt. Gen. Lori Robinson has been nominated for a fourth star and to replace Carlisle as commander of Pacific Air Forces. If confirmed, Robinson would become the second female four-star general in the Air Force. The first is Gen. Janet Wolfenbarger, commander of Air Force Materiel Command.

Carlisle has commanded PACAF since 2012, overseeing the Air Force’s “pivot” to the region, including an increase in the service’s bomber presence, more F-22 deployments and increased intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance flights. The command is also expected to announce which Pacific base will receive F-35s.

Robinson has served as vice commander of ACC since May 2013, and previously was the deputy commander of U.S. Air Forces Central Command. She has served as a senior air battle manager with more than 900 flight hours in the E-3 Sentry and E-8C Joint STARS.
