The 44th Air Wing is a collaborated joint Air Force made up of aircraft located at two air stations, both within 30 kilometers of the Kerbal Space Center. The two stations are the Val Air Force Base, located on the "Large Island" A couple dozen kilometers from the center, and the other is the KSS Blockade, located around 8 kilometers from the KSC runway.
KSS Blockade Edit
The KSS Blockade is an 'aircraft carrier'-like runway made out of parts. It originally was named KSS-Showmesomelove but was renamed to be gifted a more fitting name.
The runway can only be landed by small aircraft at low speeds as large aircraft would destroy the runway with its own weight.
The aircraft are multiple different variants from many users, including fighters, personnel carriers, and even some full fledged transports.
This air wing is mostly an experiment in making communal air forces, but it is also there to supposedly "protect" such a space program. These aircraft will remain at the base for as long as they need too be there for.
As of now, no other Air Wings exist in the game.
