Our Flying Mission

The 119th Wing is comprised of the 178th Attack Squadron, formerly the 178th Fighter Squadron. 

The 178th Attack Squadron includes operations of the MQ-9 Reaper. The MQ-9 Reaper is a medium-altitude, long-endurance, remotely piloted aircraft. The MQ-9's primary mission is interdiction and conducting armed reconnaissance against critical, perishable targets. When the MQ-9 is not actively pursuing its primary mission, it acts as the Joint Forces Air Component Commander-owned theater asset for reconnaissance, surveillance and target acquisition in support of the Joint Forces commander.
