It later became a major base under the Strategic Air Command in charge of operating nuclear intercontinental ballistic missiles, manned bombers, and refueling aircraft. The base currently operates 150 nuclear Minuteman missiles, and numerous B-52s as much as it did during the cold war. The B-52H bombers in the base were modified to launch Air Launched Cruise Missiles.
