The 52nd Fighter Wing conducts operations at Spangdahlem Air Base, Germany, one of 16 major operating locations in U.S. Air Forces in Europe. The wing is authorized about 5,560 active-duty members and about 210 Department of Defense civilians. The wing is organized with five groups responsible for operations, maintenance, mission support and medical operations, as well as headquarters staff. It is assigned 24 F-16 Fighting Falcons, and two TPS-75 radars to provide expeditionary combat capability in mission areas of suppression of enemy air defenses, close air support, air interdiction, counter air, air strike control, combat search and rescue, and theater airspace control.
Whether employing fighter aircraft and theater airspace control capability or supporting strategic mobility operations, the wing continues to be a key asset to European security and NATO, providing domineering expeditionary air power well into the 21st century.Source: http://www.spangdahlem.af.mil/library/factsheets/factsheet.asp?id=19971
