Operations. HQ USAF established Air Combat Command to integrate most of the combat resources of Strategic Air Command and Tactical Air Command into a single command, able to support and implement joint missions. The new organization assumed control of all fighter resources based in the continental United States (CONUS), as well as all bombers, reconnaissance platforms, battle management resources, and intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs). Additionally, some tankers and C-130s were assigned to ACC, primarily to its composite and reconnaissance wings. The Combat Search and Rescue (CSAR) mission transferred to the command from Air Mobility Command (AMC) in Feb 1993. In another mission change, ACC transferred responsibility for the operational control of the ICBMs to the Air Force Space Command and F-15 and F-16 flying training resources to the Air Education and Training Command (AETC) in Jul 1993. Later in Oct 1993, CONUS C-130 airlift forces transferred into ACC while the command’s tanker resources transferred to AMC. The C-130 forces returned to AMC in Apr 1997. The CSAR mission transferred to Air Force Special Operations Command (AFSOC) in Oct 2003 only to return to ACC in Apr 2006. Air Combat Command also served as the Air Force component of the United States Atlantic Command (later, United States Joint Forces Command).
