414th Combat Training Squadron

The 414th Combat Training Squadron (CTS) is the US Air Force squadron based at Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada charged with hosting Red Flag - NELLIS (RF-N) exercises, Air Combat Command's premier and largest Large Force Exercise (LFE).

Originally activated as the 414th Night Fighter Squadron the 414 CTS assumed the duties of the 4440th Tactical Fighter Training Group (Red Flag) on 1 Mar 1976. The 414 CTS currently organizes and conducts RF-N exercises on the Nevada Test and Training Range, using units from the 57th Adversary Tactics Group to present the most realistic and challenging threat scenario possible.

The 414 CTS coordinated the F-16s flown by the 64th Aggressor Squadron and F-15Cs flown by the 65th Aggressor Squadron and the ground based air defenses operated by the 507th Air Defense Aggressor Squadron.
