192nd Operations Group

The 192nd Operations Group, the Air National Guard’s premier and most diverse operations group, directly supports the United Sates Air Force’s mission in the air, space and cyber domains. The 192nd OG aims to be and stay the world’s premier air dominance, operations support, intelligence, cyberspace operations and weather organization.

The 192nd OG, 192nd Fighter Wing, is located at Joint Base Langley-Eustis, Virginia. It is comprised of approximately 285 personnel in four squadrons and one geographically separated flight: the 149th Fighter Squadron, the 192nd Intelligence Squadron, the 185th Cyberspace Operations Squadron, the 192nd Operations Support Squadron and the 200th Weather Flight in Sandston, Virginia.

The 149th FS is the USAF’s premier F-22 air dominance and T-38 adversary air squadron. The 192nd IS provides intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance products and services to joint and coalition forces and designated government agencies. They also provide incident awareness and assessment for domestic operations in Virginia. The 185th COS conducts defensive cyberspace operations to counter threats against critical state and national assets. The 192nd OSS provides aircrew flight equipment, intelligence and aviation resource management support to the Virginia ANG and its total force partners. The 200th WF provides tailored meteorological services in support of federal and state operations.

This past year, the 149th FS and 192nd OSS mobilized for six months to support Operation Inherent Resolve. During this deployment, they flew 534 F-22 Raptor flights, 4600 combat hours and dropped 263 bombs, executing a critical role in the fight against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.

The 200th WF provided weather support during winter storms and Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria at the Joint Operations Center in Sandston, Virginia.

Twenty 192nd IS Airmen worked around the clock over two months to provide incident awareness and assessment support for five states and territories following devastating hurricanes and tropical storms. Thirty 192nd IS Airmen augmented Distributed Ground Station One and completed 18,500 hours and 1,000 ISR missions resulting in the production, exploitation and dissemination of 15,700 targets and 750 intelligence products in support of operations worldwide. The 192nd IS was awarded the Meritorious Unit Award for exceptional meritorious service June 2, 2016 to May 31, 2017.

The 185th Aero Squadron, one of the five WWI squadrons within the 1st Pursuit Group, was reactivated and re-designated as the 185th COS, November 1, 2017. They became fully manned 18 months after becoming the ANG’s newest cyberspace squadron.
