Originally established as Composite Squadron Seven (VC-7) on 10 August 1950, it was redesignated as Heavy Attack Squadron Seven (VAH-7) on 1 November 1955 and was redesignated again as Reconnaissance Attack (Heavy) Squadron Seven (RVAH-7) on 1 December 1964. The squadron was disestablished on 28 September 1979.

Reconnaissance Attack Squadron SEVEN, a component of the
Naval Forces, U. S. Atlantic Fleet, was originally commissioned
as Composite Squadron SEVEN (VC-7) at Naval Air
Station, Moffett Field, California, on 30 October 1950. Less
than a year after commissioning, Composite Squadron SEVEN
transferred their North American AJ “Savage” aircraft to the
Naval Air Station, Norfolk, Virginia. After a deployment to
the Mediterranean, the Squadron moved to Patuxent River,
Maryland. In July of 1955, while detachments were deployed
on board USS INTREPID and USS CORAL SEA in the Mediterranean,
the Squadron was redesignated Heavy Attack Squadron SEVEN,
and its homeport was changed to Naval Air Station, Sanford,
Florida. HATRON SEVEN participated in the shakedown cruise
of USS FORRESTAL in 1956 and then deployed in 1957 to the
Mediterranean aboard USS ESSEX.
In March of 1958, the Squadron received its first Douglas
A3D “Skywarrior” and subsequently conducted carrier qualifications
on board USS FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT. In August of
1961, after flying the A3D for three years, the Squadron
began transition to the North American A-5A “Vigilante.”
