US Army AAA Gun Site Program 1951-59

 

This document is a compilation of information concerning the Army's AAA Gun Site program which ran from 1951 to 1959 and involved the placing of 90mm and 120mm gun batteries and supporting units in self-contained, permanent positions located in arcs around major cities and critical areas. In July 1950 there were 17 90mm AAA battalions in the Regular Army (2 were in training) and 5 120mm gun battalions. The Army National Guard had an additional 11 gun units. From this start the program expanded to include the units and defense sites included in this listing.  Initially the AAA gun program consisted of Active Army (Regular army and mobilized Army National Guard (ARNG) units stationed at major Army installations such as Fort Bliss, TX, and Camp Stewart, GA, with missions to move to major cites on order. Subsequently these units were moved to Army installations closer to their intended defense sites. Eventually the units manned the sites in  a rotation, being billeting at the Army post. In late 1952 the on site positions became permanent stations for the batteries assigned to them and eventually barracks and administrative structures were built. During the winter of 1952-53, many AAA units lived in tents on site until permanent, usually cinderblock, buildings were erected.  In 1952-53 mobilized ARNG units were released from active duty, and in most cases new Regular Army units replaced then in place. Starting in early 1954 the Nike-Ajax surface-to-air guided missile system replaced AAA guns in Active army AAA battalions (initially with 120mm units). Concurrent with this changeover, non-federalized ARNG units took over gun sites. These units had about ten fulltime soldiers, but were primarily drilling guardsmen and usually had a home armory in addition to the gun site. Starting in 1957 the Active Army began replacing Nike-Ajax with the next generation, Nike-Hercules, and the ARNG on site program began receiving Nike-Ajax systems and moving units to Nike sites. The Active Army AAA gun program officially ended in October 1957 and the few remaining gun units were inactivated shortly thereafter. The ARNG gun program lasted at least until 1959. Not included in this listing are numerous divisional and nondivisional AAA Automatic Weapons (AW) battalions, which were not involved in the static gun site program. Most of these were later converted to 75mm Skysweeper units. While technically an AAA gun, the Skysweeper was used tactically the same way the AW units were used and are not included here (except for the  two deployed to the Savannah River Project).  Only 90mm, 120mm and headquarters units associated with the gun sites program are included on this listing.

AAA Gun Units 1951-57

 

Battalion designations.  Designations for AAA gun battalions in the 1950s changed and evolved as the concept of army continental air defense evolved. The official designations were as follows: originally AAA Gun Battalion (90mm) until 1952, then AAA Battalion (Gun)(90mm) (Static) in 1953 and then in 1954  AAA Battalion (90mm Gun) (Static) (Continental). In this table, AAA Bn with the weapon size in parenthesis, is used throughout for simplicity. This listing includes gun battalions and associated group and brigade headquarters units.
