  • Gunfighter Flag 18-3, Adaptive Basing

    Adaptive basing exercises require all levels of the squadron to deploy small teams of Airmen and aircraft for a short amount of time to hone their skills. Adaptive basing is the ability to rapidly refuel and re-arm F-15’s in an austere environment, a location we haven’t operated from before. It could have some support facilities or just a runway in the middle of nowhere. Every quarter, the 366th Fighter Wing holds “Gunfighter Flag”, an exercise where the fighter squadrons participate in air-to-air and air-to-ground training to maintain F-15E Strike Eagles during peace-time and war-time contingencies. The concept is still fairly new and has been improving.

Preparing for those scenarios that happen down-range requires cooperation from both pilots and Joint Terminal Attack Controllers to get the job done. Green Flag West provides essential Close Air Support training that combines the capabilities of the Air Force and Army as a multi-domain fighting force.
