FAIRCHILD AIR FORCE BASE, Wash. -- Airmen from the 92nd and the 141st Air Refueling Wing conducted exercise Titan Fury 23-1, Nov. 7-10.

Titan Fury is a total force readiness exercise conducted to validate the training of crews and ensure Fairchild’s Airmen can provide rapid global mobility at a moment’s notice.

“Titan Fury ensures we can work together as a wing to perform essential mission sets,” said Lt. Col. Edward Salazar, 92nd ARW inspector general. “It is an entire team exercise that includes active duty, Air National Guard and every group and squadron on base.”

The exercise demonstrated maintenance Airmen’s ability to generate aircraft and crews to rapidly respond and immediately mobilize. Readiness exercises at this scale enable U.S. strategic capabilities used every day to deter attacks.

“Every Airmen works hard daily to prepare for this mission set,’’ said Capt. Brendan Keiper, 92nd ARW Plans and Programs officer. “Titan Fury is the culminating event to prove we are capable of executing our mission and each Airman on base has a critical role.”

The KC-135 Stratotanker aircraft has been utilized for decades to extend global reach and deterrence through aerial refueling, ensuring the projection of U.S. air power and deterrence of potential adversaries. They fuel strategic bombers, mobility and fighter aircraft, and airborne national command centers.

“We are the stewards of this mission, carrying out the ability to ensure our adversaries are deterred,” Salazar said.  “By conducting exercises like Titan Fury, Team Fairchild can continue to hone the skills required to execute its air refueling and supporting strategic deterrence missions as the world’s premier air refueling wing.”
