At Taejŏn a detachment of the 620th Aircraft Control and Warning Squadron extemporized a TACC, while the 6132nd Tactical Air Control Squadron was being organized back at Itazuke, effective 14 July. This squadron, later redesignated as the 6132nd Tactical Air Control Group, moved almost immediately to Taegu where it established a full scale TACC, with AN/TTQ-1 plotting equipment and VHF radio.

Since no radar equipment was in use in the field, the principal duty of the TACC was fighter direction control for close support. Enemy pressure forced the withdrawal of the heavy TACC equipment from Taegu to Pusan on 30 July, but a small scale TACC remained operational at Taegu.
