A Tactical Fighter Wing is the second largest unit of command for a fighter complement onboard a Federation starship. Organized, equipped and trained to embark on carrier-type starships, a Tactical Fighter Wing is a relatively large formation of 4 squadrons of 9 fighters per squadron. This translates to a total of 36 individual fighters in a Tactical Fighter Wing.

Two to six wings form a Tactical Fighter Group.

Akira-class Heavy Cruisers usually feature one Tactical Fighter Wing, or 36 fighters on their full fly-through decks.

Dauntless-class Command Battleships, Suzerain-class Fleet Carriers, and Invincible-class Command Fleet Carrier-Battleships feature Tactical Fighter Groups of two to six Tactical Fighter Wings.

Tactical Fighter Wings are commanded by a Fighter Wing Command Officer holding the rank of Commander.
