Hobby Master 1:72 Air Power Series Diecast Model

Lockheed S-3A Viking – #159769, VS-31 "Topcats," USS Independence (CV-62), U.S. Navy, 1977

1:72 Scale.  Length: 9".  Wingspan: 11.5"



Scouting Squadron 31 was formed in World War II and decommissioned in 1945. In 1948 it was re-established as VC-31, but in 1949 became the Atlantic Fleet’s first VS Squadron when it was tasked to perform carrier-based anti-submarine warfare duties. With this new task came a new name, VS-31 (Anti-Submarine Squadron 31) “Topcats”. In 1973 VS-31 moved their S-2 Trackers to Florida and in 1974 became the first VS deployed on the USS Independence. In 1977 VS-31 would once again sail on USS Independence but now equipped with the S-3A Viking.

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.
