The squadron was established as part of a reorganization intended to increase the combat readiness of the Naval Air Reserve Force. It was to provide electronic warfare, tanking, pathfinding and carrier onboard delivery service to the Atlantic and Pacific Fleets and other units around the world. During its lifetime it provided these services to numerous operations, including those during the Indo-Pakistani War of 1971, the Yom Kippur War, and the Turkish Invasion of Cyprus. It was embarked on many different aircraft carriers.[1]
