Default AWACS Plural?

One AWACS, two AWACSES or AWACS?

...using apostrophes in plural form is just bad grammar (even though the Internet doesn't seem to care).

AWACS = Airborne Warning And Control System, so two would be Airborne Warning And Control Systems (AWACSs), or even better - two AWACS planes
