Welcome to the 366th Fighter Wing and Mountain Home Air Force Base. I want to be one of the first people to welcome you. The Gunfighters are members of a unique team with an extremely rich and proud heritage. Assigned weapon systems include F-15C and the F-15E aircraft. We also have the privilege to work alongside the Republic of Singapore Air Force and their newly acquired F-15SGs, as they are now assigned to our base.
Being ready, both personally and professionally is an ongoing priority. Our wing's mission places intense pressure on you to be well prepared. Mountain Home AFB has many superb service agencies, partnered with our fine neighbors in the local community, to assist you in taking care of yourself and your family.
Idaho is a very diverse state, rich not only in outdoor activities, but also in cultural history. From a quiet fishing hole to a rugged mountain hike, the Mountain Home area provides a vast array of adventurous pastimes. Nearby Boise is alive with activity; museums, art galleries, concerts, plays and the symphony are all within an hours drive.
Being a Gunfighter will be a memory you'll cherish throughout your Air Force career. Again, welcome to the Gunfighter community.

Curious about the base? We have the information you need to help you transition to your new home. Below is a list of popular locations and frequently asked questions.
What We Do Here
Our mission is to develop and deploy combat-ready Airmen, take care of Gunfighters and protect and enhance our resources.
Our vision is an innovative Gunfighter team - providing combat power for our nation from an installation of excellence.
The men and women of the 366th Fighter Wing impart a unique blend of rapid firepower to locations all over the globe. The fighter wing's Gunfighters are ready to deploy against the spectrum of conflict in any conceivable environment.
Our F-15E Strike Eagles afford the Gunfighters unmatched air-to-air and air-to-ground combat superiority. These remarkable aircraft are supported through combat and control, communications, intelligence and numerous support functions. The Gunfighters, a team of expeditionary combat leaders, consolidate these capabilities and forge ideas into airpower.
In addition, the Gunfighters participate in a unique, long-term partnership with the Republic of Singapore Air Force. The U.S.-flagged 428th Fighter Squadron is dedicated solely to the training of Singaporean F-15SG aircrews and operations of their country's newest fighter platform. The combined efforts on this program help ensure a strong U.S.-Singapore relationship while directly enabling Singapore to project airpower into the next generation.
The wing population consists of more than 4,000 active-duty Airmen and nearly 900 civilian and contractor personnel.
