The 3rd MISB, which was formerly a part of the 4th MISG, is currently a separate unit directly subordinated to the Military Information Support Operations Command (Airborne) (Provisional) and provides both the 4th and the 8th MISGs with radio, television, digital-audio-visual and print assets for developing MISO products such as leaflets, posters, handbills, newspapers, radio and television broadcasts.[4] The three regional military information support battalions are regionally oriented and support the regional combatant commands in the planning and production of MISO programs:

7th MISB(A) – United States Africa Command (AFRICOM)
