Davis-Monthan Air Force Base is a key Air Combat Command installation, located within the city limits of Tucson, Arizona, with a colorful history and a long tradition in excellence in service to the United States. The 355th Wing is the host unit providing medical, logistical and operational support to all D-M units. The wing's missions are to train A-10 and OA-10 pilots to provide A-10 and OA-10 close support and foward air control to ground forces worldwide. The wing is also tasked to provide command, control and communications countermeasures in support of tactical forces with its EC-130H aircraft and , employing the EC-130H aircraft, provide airborne command, control and communications capabilities for managing tactical air operations in war and other contingencies worldwide. Nearly every major air command, the Air Force Reserve and the Air National Guard are represented among the associate units at Davis-Monthan. Among the bases's associate units are the 12th Air Force headquarters, Aerospace Maintenance and Regerneration center, 305th Rescue Squadron and Detachment 1, 120th Fighter Interceptor Group. The 305th Rescue Squadron and Air Force Reserve unit flies the HH-60G Pavehawk helicopter. Its primary mission is search and rescue.

Lockheed C-130P Hercules: Designed to function as a troop, medical evacuation and cargo transport aircraft, the C-130 Hercules was first flown on August 23rd, 1954. Built by Lockheed and capable of over 40,000 lbs of payload, this four-engine turboprop aircraft is quite possibly the most versatile tactical transport in existence. Its modern roles include airlift and airdrop, electronic surveillance, search and rescue, space-capsule recovery, helicopter refueling and aerial attack. Capable of takeoffs and landings from unprepared runways, the C-130 has even landed and taken off from a carrier deck without benefit of arresting gear or catapults.

Sikorsky UH-60 Black Hawk: Designed as a better-performing, more reliable replacement for the UH-1 Huey, the UH-60 Black Hawk was first flown on November 29, 1974. The Black Hawk was one of the first aircraft to use the General Electric T700, a common turbine engine designed for use in multiple Army helicopters. This four-bladed, twin-engined, medium-lift aircraft has a low-profile shape so that it can be transported aboard the C-130 Hercules. It also has greater survivability than the helicopter it replaced, with advanced avionics and electronics such as the Global Positioning System (GPS). The Black Hawk also serves as Marine One when transporting the President of the United States.
