Airlift base under AMC but also with other users .

Former: 308th Strategic Msl Wing (373rd and 374th Strat Msl Sqns) operating Titan II ICBMs. Titan II was deployed in 1x 9 configuration. Each squadron consisted of 9 launch facilities housing 1 missile. Each Titan II silo was directly connected to an underground launch control manned by a msl combat crew of 2 officers and 2 enlisted. Titan II silos were markedly different from Titan I launch complexes. Most notably, the Titan II's all-inertial guidance system no longer required that the missiles remain tethered to a ground-based guidance system. Instead the Titan IIs were based separately. Each silo at least 7 miles from its closest neighbor. USAF deployed 6 squadrons of Titan II missiles. Each operating 9 missiles and to save money, the squadrons were grouped in pairs (373 and 374), forming an operational base. All of the logistic and support functions were based at existing SAC bases and the missiles were located nearby from 1962-1987.
