5 Air Depot (5AD) was originally created in 1940 to maintain aircraft of the SAAF but got absorbed into 1 Air Depot in 1941. With the advent of the Border War it ws re-established as 4 Air Depot at AFB Waterkloof and responsible for fourth-line-service and maintenance of radio- and radar-equipment used for air-defence. On 19 January 1982 the name of 5 Air Depot was authorised and the unit was officially opened as such on 4 June 1982. The base-layout was originally designed to provide depot-level-servicing of air-electronic-equipment of the SAAF, but in time it was expanded to include the Air Force's electronic engineers, Electronic-Warfare Centre as well as the Signal Intelligence Section. It became 5 Air Servicing Unit (5 ASU) around 1999, performing maintenance and support functions for the SAAF units at Air Force Base Waterkloof..
