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 four (4) squadrons of nine (9) combat shuttles per squadron. This translates to a total of thirty-six (36) individual combat shuttles in a Tactical Fighter Wing.

Two (2) to four (4) wings form a Tactical Fighter Group.

Akira-class Heavy Cruisers and Midway-class strike cruisers usually feature one (1) Tactical Fighter Wing, or thirty-six (36) fighters on their full fly-through decks.

Larger capital ships feature Tactical Fighter Groups of two (2) to four (4) Tactical Fighter Wings.

Tactical Fighter Wings are commanded by a Starfleet officer holding the rank of Commander.
