The 428th Fighter Squadron is a unit of the 366th Fighter Wing at Mountain Home Air Force Base, Idaho. Currently, it operates F-15SG Strike Eagle aircraft and conducts formal training missions to qualify Republic of Singapore Air Force crew in the F-15SG in a program called Peace Carvin V.

The squadron was first activated during World War II and served in the European Theater of Operations as part of the 474th Fighter Group, where it earned a Distinguished Unit Citation. After the end of the war in Europe in 1945, the 428th briefly served with the occupation forces in Germany before returning to the United States and being inactivated. The squadron was reactivated in 1952 as the 428th Fighter-Bomber Squadron to replace an Air National Guard unit serving in the Korean War, and it earned a second Distinguished Unit Citation in that conflict. After the Korean War truce, the squadron returned to the United States and frequently deployed to Europe. As the reactivated 428th Tactical Fighter Squadron under the 474th Tactical Fighter Wing, it deployed to Thailand in 1968 to support the Vietnam War and again in 1973 to Thailand to support combat operations in the Vietnam War. The squadron was inactivated in 1989.

In 1990, the squadron became the 428th Tactical Fighter Training Squadron and has trained crews from 1990 to 1995, 1998 to 2005, and again since 2009.
