Three missile wings of the newly formed Air Force Global Strike Command (AFGSC) have successfully passed a no-notice limited nuclear surety inspection.

The 90th Missile Wing, at FE Warren Air Force Base, the 341st Missile Wing at Malmstrom AFB, and the 91st Missile Wing at Minot AFB were part of the 20th Air Force’s main units.

A nine-to-ten-member team, including observers from US Strategic Command and oversight from the Air Force Inspections Agency, reviewed the qualifications and certifications of these operations, and the security and maintenance missile wing personnels, during the inspection.

AFGSC commander Lt. Gen. Frank G. Klotz said these initial inspections were a way to gauge two things: the ability to carry-out inspections as a new command and the readiness to properly carry out the mission at the three missile wings.

The AFGSC was formed in August 2009, with the aim of supporting the president and combatant commanders, and provide combat-ready forces, capable of conducting strategic nuclear deterrence and global strike operations.

“This requires an uncompromising adherence to standards and superior technical weapons systems expertise,” he said.
