composite wing
An Air Force wing that operates more than one type of weapon system. Some composite wings are built from the ground up and designed to put all resources required to meet a specific warfighting objective in a single wing under one commander at one location. Other composite wings need not be built from the ground up but combine different weapon systems operating at the same base into a single wing.
