AV-8B Harrier

Representing, arguably, the greatest breakthroughs in aircraft technology, the Harrier was the first VSTOL-capable (vertical/short takeoff and landing) jet in the Marine inventory, giving MAGTF commanders new flexibility on the battlefield. With the ability to attack anywhere, the Harrier forces the enemy to defend everywhere, exposing vulnerabilities the enemy must divert resources to protect.

MV-22B Osprey

The MV-22B Osprey is a tiltrotor aircraft with both a vertical takeoff and landing and short takeoff and landing ability making it multi-mission capable. It is designed to combine the functionality and maneuverability of a conventional helicopter with the long-range, high speed cruise performance of a turboprop aircraft. The Osprey also has the ability to carry 24 combat troops twice as fast and five times as far as previous helicopters making the Osprey an essential aircraft for many missions across the military.

2nd MAW Band

The Second Marine Aircraft Wing Band (2D MAW Band) is stationed on Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point in Havelock, North Carolina. The band provides musical support for military units, civilian community relations, recruiting and troop morale and welfare. While the members of the band typically spend their days rehearsing and performing music, they are required to maintain physical fitness standards and many other types of military training that is in keeping with the Marine Corps philosophy that “Every Marine is a Rifleman”. When the band is deployed in support of combat operations, its primary mission is to provide security for 2D MAW.

Marine Air-Ground Task Force

Specifically designed for swift deployment of Marine forces by air, land or sea, the Marine Air-Ground Task Force (MAGTF) provides our nation with a broad spectrum of response options when our nation's interests are threatened. Coordinating a balanced team of ground, air and logistics assets under a central command, these self-sustained, combined arms forces conduct the full range of operations. MAGTFs can be tailored in size and capability to meet the needs of each mission.
