S-3 159765/Modex 705/AB was accepted by the US Navy on October 31, 1975 and assigned to VS-31 "TopCats" on November 4, 1975. It wasn’t until 1982, and a few reassignments, before 159765 reached VS-32 "Maulers". In 1988 the aircraft was upgraded to an S-3B configuration and once again reassigned to VS-37 "Grim Dogs". Once again 159765 was assigned to VS-32 between 1990 and 1993. On February 1991 during Operation Desert Storm, 159765 destroyed an Iraqi patrol boat using three 500 pound Mk-82 bombs as well as inadvertently dropping a refueling pod.

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.
