MOUNTAIN HOME AIR FORCE BASE, Idaho --

F-15E Strike Eagles from the 389th and 391st Fighter Squadrons executed night sorties in support of exercise Gunslinger 18-4. The exercise tested personnel and units in their ability to support a contingency response to an adversarial threat here on base or in an expeditionary capacity across the globe.

The wing executed multiple scenarios that tested the techniques associated with chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosives (CBRNE) response; security forces tactics and base defense measures; and Self Air Buddy Care (SABC) and mass-casualty medical training, to name a few.
