The 21st Special Operations Squadron is specialized in the use of the CV-22 Osprey in conducting long-range infiltration, exfiltration and resupply missions for special operations forces. The CV-22 is equipped with integrated threat countermeasures, terrain-following radar, infrared sensors and other advanced avionics that make it a formidable power projection tool in adverse conditions and contested environments. Resolute Dragon 22 is an annual bilateral exercise designed to strengthen the defensive capabilities of the U.S.-Japan Alliance by exercising integrated command and control, targeting, combined arms, and maneuver across multiple domains.
