It entered active service in the US Air Force in 1982 and 1,739 AGM-86s were produced through September 1986. The conventional AGM-86 missile was used in combat for the first time in Operation Desert Storm in 1991. Afterward it was tested in Operation Desert Fox, Desert Strike, Allied Force, Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom.
