Büchel airbase is hosting a small USAF Geographically Separated Unit (GSU)
- German NATO Panavia Tornado strike wing
- USAF 702 Munitions Suppt Sq (MUNSS) is under 52d Munition Maintenance Group (Spangdahlem) and responsible for storage, security and maintenance of a max of 44 B61 nuc weapons. In March 2022 a batch of the latest version of these weapons (vs.12) has been delivered. Type 12 is still a "switch a yield" weapon but with an upgraded tail kit, improving its accuracy and giving it the capacity of gliding towards its target instead of using a dragchute.
