o Aircraft: four B-52H, two B-52G, three B-1B

This squadron, the last one operational outside the United States, was formed from the survivors of the squadrons that were based at Diego Garcia.

and they even have a few nukes left if the Soviets go nuclear again - four AGM-86B cruise missiles, eight B61 and three B83 nuclear bombs.
My old USAFR unit!!!
Proper designation would be 917th Wing. The 93rd BS and 45th FS (A-10s) were part of the Wing in the 90s. We had 6xB-52s nominally assigned operated by the wing. In practice, the B-52s were actually shared with the 2nd Bomb Wing.
