That is a Viper AMU patch from the late 80's early 90's. All Maint. Units of the 57th Weapons School had names not unit numbers. I was assigned to the Falcon AMU right next door to Viper. Viper was home to the Red Flag Aggressors and they also conducted some testing. I agree that they were aligned with the 422.

Nellis AFB 57th AGS Aircraft Generation Squadron or AMXS Aircraft Maintenance Squadron, but this is an older looking patch and I am gonna go with AGS. The stars are for the 422 TES Test and Evaluation Squadron
