Hahn Air Base, Germany was one of eight bases in U.S. Air Forces Europe selected to test the comptroller squadron concept. Effective Nov. 15, 1983, the 7150th CPTS was designated and activated at Hahn AB.

This objective was met and based on the positive results from all of the test squadrons, Headquarters U.S. Air Force authorized the establishment of permanent comptroller squadrons in USAFE.
Effective July 1, 1985, the 7150th CPTS was inactivated and the 50th CPTS was officially designated and activated at Hahn AB. The unit was inactivated Sept. 30, 1991, with the closure of Hahn AB.
