      On an inverted triangle with rounded corners is a portion of the squadron’s emblem, the embattled demarcation canted bend-sinisterwise, black (or navy blue?) and lime green, embattlements outlined yellow.  In dexter chief an atomic symbol with a grid-lined globe as nucleus, and in sinister base a yellow reentry vehicle bend-sinisterwise, its tip on the center of a red target with white cross-hairs and black concentric circles, which in turn is superimposed on a black four-leaf clover.  Across the top of the patch is “INSTRUCTOR” and on the other two sides near the edge is the remaining inscription:  “741 MS WEAPONS AND TACTICS.”  Patch image courtesy of Monte Watts in 2022.

          4th Airborne Command and Control Squadron – PACCS EC-135 Mission Commander

          564th Missile Squadron – ACP Crew

            After the Minuteman II weapons system was retired by presidential order in late 1991, the 10th, 12th, and 490th Missile Squadrons at Malmstrom were “off alert” and their crews and teams were busy de-posturing and removing the old missiles.  From the time the wing attained FOC back in the 1960s, the wing’s alternate command post had been Kilo LCC, but now Kilo was a non-player in the nuclear deterrence business, so the SCP in the only unit in the wing that still had poised weapons, Tango in the 564 MS, assumed the role of ACP.  This patch was designed in 2001 by Bob Colpitts, who was the Blue Flight Deputy Commander at the time, for wear by the ACP crews who bragged, “WE PULL OURS AT TANGO” (referring to their alert tours).  The patch displays a dragon entwined around a Minuteman III missile between five stars, representing the five LCCs in the squadron.  The two lightning flashes represent the two methods used by the LCCs to communicate with their missiles:  cable and radio.  And, of course, the patch also displays “DEUCE.”  Tango LCC remained the wing ACP well after the RIVET ADD mod for the other three units was completed in 1998, apparently until around 2007 when the decision was made to inactivate the 564 MS, at which time the role of ACP was finally resumed by Kilo.  Patch donated by Capt Borah.

                Ignoring the fact that this is a patch in subdued rather than vivid colors, otherwise it might at first glance appear to be just a subdued version of the Style A patch, but a closer look reveals the Style A patch is all the same color except for the features on it that are all depicted in an outline fashion.  However, rather than having the cloud the same color as the field, this patch depicts all elements of the atomic cloud (its cap, stem, and ground blast) in a color different from that used for the field.  Also, although much less significant, is the shield on this patch is the same width as the stem of the mushroom cloud, whereas on the vivid version it is much wider–almost twice as wide.  This Style B patch has been observed in OCP colors only.  Patch donated by Monte Watts in 2022.

                  The “Skull on Wings” emblem of the 490 BS “Burma Bridge Busters” is superimposed on an atomic mushroom cloud, the ground blast of which is cleverly formed to say “FARSIDER”–the nickname of those in this unit.Patch donated by Monte Watts in October 2016.

                    The same questions posed for the Mission Commander patches at F.E. Warren (e.g., 319 MS and 321 MS) come to mind here too.  In fact, not only are the names similar, so is the design!  Here, though, the “Skull on Wings” of the 490 BS is used and the patch is circular.  Patch donated by Monte Watts in September 2019
