The Colonial Marine Aerospace Wing is the aerospace combat element of the Marine Space Force. Designed for aerospace support and the airmobility mission, the aerospace wing is essentially an administrative formation, since much of its fighting strength is directly attached to the Colonial Marine division. Typically, a Marine aerospace wing operates some 300 dropships, 30 heavy-lift shuttles and 100 strikeships. [1]
