During the 1960s, Hill AFB performed maintenance support for various kinds of jet warplanes including the F-4 Phantom II during the Vietnam War and then more modern jets, such as the F-16 Fighting Falcons, and the C-130 Hercules. Air combat missiles system and air-to-ground rocket maintenance was also provided and Hill Air Force Base continues to carry out these tasks to the present day.
