HistoryEdit

Carrier Air Wing Six (CVW-6) is the assigned auxiliary craft detachment aboard the USS Defiant. However during the refit and completion of the BC-304 CVW-6 was reformed from the ground up with a mixture of veterans from the war, and some fresh from Clear Lake.

A carrier air wing has a small command staff consisting of 16-20 officers and approximately 20 enlisted personnel. It is headed by the "CAG" (Commander, Air Group) a legacy term from the earlier term for the Air Wing) who is normally a Navy Captain or a Marine Corps Colonel with an aeronautical designation as a Naval Aviator or Naval Flight Officer. Of course there are exceptions to this placement as seen currently on board the USS Defiant. Although eligible, Marine assignments to "CAG" or "DCAG" (Deputy Commander) positions are typically limited to one Carrier Air Wing. Second in command is the Deputy Commander (DCAG), usually a Navy Lieutenant Commander or Marine Lieutenant Colonel aviator or NFO, who "fleets up" to the CAG position after about 18 months. Also on the staff are an Operations Officer (Lieutenant Commander or Lieutenant), a number of warfare specialists (typically Lieutenant Commanders or Lieutenants), two Wing Landing Signal Officers, an Intelligence Officer, and a Maintenance Officer.

The air wing staff is often supplemented with squadron personnel, such as the squadron intelligence officers. The CAG reports to a Rear Admiral in the position of Commander, Carrier Strike Group and is coequal in stature with the Commanding Officer of the aircraft carrier as well as the embarked Destroyer Squadron (DESRON) Commander and the attached guided missile cruiser commanding officer. The CAG serves as the Strike Group's Strike Warfare Commander, responsible for all offensive strike operations (including long range strikes on primary targets from the ship). CAGs are typically qualified to fly at least two types of aircraft in the Carrier Air Wing’s inventory.

The air wing composition is designed to allow for broad striking power hundreds of miles from the carrier's position, while providing defense in depth of the battle group through early warning and detection of space borne, airborne, surface and subsurface targets.
