Abstract : USAF reorganization in 1991-1992 resulted in a different appearance to the nations land based air forces. One change from this reorganization was tailoring of some USAF wings into composite wings to offer tailored forces for specific missions. While composite operations is not a new concept for naval aircraft aboard a carrier, Marine Air when assigned to a MAGTF, or even for USAF aircraft in combat operations, it is new for the peacetime Air Force. This paper addresses responsiveness and mobility advantages and theater organization options realized by theater comanders with the advent of peacetime composite wings. jg
