With 12 crews and 5 aircraft you are not planing on working the aircraft very hard!

Most airlines work with 6 or 7 crews per aircraft and have the things in the air for about 19 hours a day.

I don't know much about the way the military use the aircraft but in the transport role the aircraft utilisation seems very low by airline standards.
