Air Task Group (ATG)

From 2014 to 2020 Australia's Air Task Group is conducted air combat and support operations in Iraq, operating within a US-led international coalition which was assembled to disrupt and degrade ISIL.

Through these operations the coalition worked to protect the people of Iraq with the full permission of the Iraqi Government.

The ATG comprised of the task group headquarters, a KC-30A Multi Role Tanker Transport aircraft and an E-7A Wedgetail Airborne Early Warning and Control (AEW&C) aircraft which deployed on a rotational basis, together with their supporting aircrew, maintenance and logistic personnel.
