Combat Control Skull on Mens Short Sleeve T-Shirt

Description:

See our sizing chart.


Combat controllers are certified air traffic controllers who are an integral part of the Air Force's ground combat team, that specializes in unconventional missions.

They can set up navigational aid equipment anywhere in the world to guide aircraft for landing on makeshift runways without the benefit of a tower or large communications system.

Their motto \"First There\" indicates the CCT commitment to be the first deployed into restricted environments by air, land or sea tactics to establish assault zones. The assault zone is a drop zone for parachute operations, a landing zone for fixed wing or helicopter operations, or an extraction zone for low altitude re-supply.

Combat controllers can also control air attacks for fixed-wing and rotary-wing operations to include aircraft from all military services. In addition, combat controllers provide vital command and control, intelligence gathering, surveying capabilities, limited weather observations and are qualified in demolition to clear obstructions and hazards from potential runways and landing zones.

With CCT support, Air Force operating locations are limitless and global reach capabilities are enhanced.

Combat Controllers Commandos:

Assigned to Air Force Special Operations Command, combat controllers join forces with pararescuemen and combat weathermen to form highly trained Special Tactics teams.

Special Tactics teams frequently operate with Navy SEALs, Army Rangers and Special Forces in \"direct action,\" airfield seizure and personnel recovery missions in hostile territory.

Operating in all climates, day or night, combat controllers maintain the highest standards of physical fitness and proficiency in the use of light weapons. They endure some of the toughest training offered in the U.S. military. Their training, as well as their unique mission, earns them the right to wear the scarlet beret.

Combat Controllers are assigned under the 720th Special Tactics Group, an AFSOC unit with headquarters at Hurlburt Field, Fla. Within the 720th STG they are assigned to four active-duty Special Tactics Squadrons and one Air National Guard squadron in the United States: the 21st and 24th STS at Pope Air Force Base, N.C.; the 22nd STS at McChord AFB, Wash.; the 23rd STS at Hurlburt Field.; and the 123rd STS at the Kentucky Air National Guard in Louisville.

CCT are also assigned to overseas units: the 320th STS at Kadena Air Base, Japan; and the 321st STS at RAF Mildenhall, England.

Training

Combat controllers complete the same technical training as all air traffic controllers. Plus the following physical and specialized training:

Air Traffic Control School, Keesler Air Force Base, Miss. - This is the same 15 and a half-week course that all other air traffic controllers attend. This is the core skill of a combat controller's job.

U.S. Army Airborne School, Fort Benning, Ga. -- Trainees learn the basic parachuting skills required to infiltrate an objective area by static line airdrop in a three-week course.

U.S. Air Force Basic Survival School, Fairchild AFB, Wash. -- This two and a half-week course teaches basic survival techniques for remote areas. Instruction includes principles, procedures, equipment and techniques, which enable individuals to survive, regardless of climatic conditions or unfriendly environments and return home.

Combat Control School, Pope AFB, N.C. - This 12-week course provides final combat controller qualifications. Training includes land navigation, communications, assault zones, demolitions, small unit tactics, parachute operations, water operations and field tactics.

Air Force Special Operations Command Advanced Skills Training - Advanced Skills Training employs a \"warrior training warrior\" philosophy, teaching the skills necessary for successful service in the Special Tactics community during this year-long course. Training includes preparation for the Army Combat Divers and the Military Freefall Parachutist Schools. Also included is training in advanced communications and navigational aids, employment techniques, weapons training and small unit tactics.

U.S. Army Combat Diver Qualification Course, Key West, Fla. - Trainees become combat divers, learning to use scuba to infiltrate areas undetected in this four-week course. The school provides training to depths of 130 feet, developing maximum underwater mobility under various operating conditions.

U.S. Navy Underwater Egress Training, Pensacola Naval Air Station, Fla. - This one-day course teaches how to safely escape from an aircraft that has ditched in the water. Instruction includes principles, procedures and techniques necessary to get out of a sinking aircraft.

U.S. Army Military Free Fall Parachutist School, Fort Bragg, N.C., and Yuma Proving Grounds, Ariz. - This five-week course instructs free fall parachuting (high altitude, low opening or HALO) using the high performance ram air canopy. The course provides wind tunnel training, in-air instruction focusing on student stability, aerial maneuvers, air sense, and parachute opening procedures. Each student receives a minimum of 30 free fall jumps including two day and night jumps with supplemental oxygen, rucksack and load bearing equipment.

History

Army pathfinders originated in 1943 out of need for accurate airdrops during airborne campaigns of World War II.

Pathfinders precede main assault forces into objective areas to provide weather information and visual guidance to inbound aircraft through the use of high-powered lights, flares and smoke pots.

Sept. 18, 1947, the Air Force becomes a separate service.

January 1953, Air Force pathfinders, later called combat control teams, are activated to provide navigational aids and air traffic control for a growing Air Force.

1960s, during the Vietnam War, combat controllers helped assure mission safety and expedited air traffic flow during countless airlifts. Combat controllers also flew as forward air guides in support of indigenous forces in Laos and Cambodia.

Combat controllers continue to be the \"First There\" when they are called upon to help resolve international emergencies and humanitarian relief efforts.

Be it an Airfield In War Zone you are the \" First There\" either from the Air or the Sea...In Any US Airforce operations need to use it. We hope thatg traditon stays because there is nothing more lousy than a chaotic LZ.
