The U.S. Navy’s S-3 Viking is a four-seat, twin-engine turbofan-powered jet aircraft that was made by Lockheed and was primarily for anti-submarine warfare (ASW). During the 1990s with the end of the cold war, the S-3B’s mission focus shifted to surface warfare and aerial refueling. Adding to its suite of capabilities the Viking also provided electronic warfare and surface surveillance to the carrier battle group. As a carrier-based, subsonic, all-weather, multi-mission aircraft with long range; it was a very capable multimission platform. It carried automated weapon systems and could fly extended missions with in-flight refueling. it was nicknamed the “Hoover” after the vacuum cleaner brand because of the Viking’s engines’ characteristic sound.

It sadly retired from US Navy fleet service aboard aircraft carriers in January 2009. Its missions were assumed by other platforms such as the P-3C Orion, Sikorsky SH-60 Seahawk, and Boeing F/A-18E/F Super Hornet.

There has been some talk of returning the S-3 to the fleet due to the renewed focus on ASW and a continued demand for refueling capability.

The last several aircraft were flown by Air Test and Evaluation Squadron Thirty (VX-30) at Naval Base Ventura County / NAS Point Mugu, California, until 2016. One S-3 is operated by the NASA at the NASA Glenn Research Center.
