U.S. Navy VS-28 “Gamblers” was commissioned in 1960 at Quonset Point in Rhode Island. The mission of the squadron is to locate and counter enemy submarine threats. In January 1974 they moved to Naval Air Station Cecil Field, Florida. After deployments aboard the USS Saratoga and USS Independence, VS-28 began the first of 4 cruises on USS Forrestal in 1986 that lasted until April, 1990. VS-28 gained the nickname “Hukkers”, a derivative of “Hunter/Killers”. The squadron was deactivated on October 1, 1992.

The Lockheed S-3 Viking is a four-seat, twin-engine turbofan-powered jet aircraft that was used by the U.S. Navy to identify and track enemy submarines.
