Post 275 La Jolla Vikings (S-3)

La Jolla  HS                                Jake Grosz                  PRO-CAL Lighting        

The S-3 Viking was first conceived in 1960s to serve as a next-generation submarine hunter. In the event of a war between NATO and the Warsaw Pact, the U.S. Navy’s most important mission would have been combating the Soviet Union’s large submarine fleet. If the war went nuclear, Soviet ballistic-missile submarines could have wreaked terrible devastation on U.S. cities. And if the conflict remained conventional, then attack submarines would have done their best to sink convoys of American troop ships reinforcing NATO forces in Europe.  The Navy finally retired its last S-3 squadron in January 2009.

Post 434 CV Mater Dei Crusaders (F-8)

CV Mater Dei                          Ed Johnson

F-8 Crusader successfully bridged the gap between the days of close-quarters dogfighting and the supersonic era of long-range missile engagements.

The Crusader remained in first-line U.S. Navy service until 1976, when the last of the Oriskany-class carriers was decommissioned. But that didn’t mark the end of the F-8’s combat career.

Post 282 Granite Hills Prowlers (EA-6)

Granite Hills HS                       James Davis

The Prowler was in service with the U.S. Armed Forces from 1971 until 2019. It has carried out numerous missions for jamming enemy radar systems, and in gathering radio intelligence on those and other enemy air defense systems. From the 1998 retirement of the United States Air Force EF-111 Raven electronic warfare aircraft, the EA-6B was the only dedicated electronic warfare plane available for missions by the U.S. Navy, the U.S. Marine Corps, and the U.S. Air Force until the fielding of the Navy's EA-18G Growler in 2009.

 

Following its last deployment in late 2014, the EA-6B was withdrawn from U.S. Navy service in June 2015, followed by the USMC in March 2019.

Post 416 Clairemont Corsairs (A-7)

Clairemont HS                       Tony Majam

The A-7 Corsair II was one of a few US Navy aircraft to be operated by the US Air Force. It was created in response to the US Navy's 1963 light attack aircraft specification, which required light attack aircraft to replace the A-4 Skyhawk and with about twice the payload. 35 production A-7A's were ordered on March 19, 1964, powered by a non afterburning 12,200lb Pratt & Whitney TF-30-P-8 turbofan engine. It first flight occurred on September 27, 1965, and in 1966, the USAF ordered the A-7D (airforce version) with the Allison TF41 turbofan engine. The US Navy later developed the A-7E with TF41 engines also.

 

The A-7 was used widely during the Vietnam War and the US Navy used them during the Gulf War as well. The A-7 was later replaced by the F/A-18 Hornet.

Post 416 La Jolla Country Day Skyhawks (A-4)

La Jolla Country Day            John Edman

The Marine Corps A-4 Skyhawk is a lightweight, single engine attack aircraft. The mission of an A-4 attack squadron is to attack and to destroy surface targets in support of the landing force commander, escort helicopters, and conduct other operations as directed. Developed in the early 1950s, the A-4 Skyhawk was originally designated the A-4D as a lightweight, daylight only nuclear capable strike aircraft for use in large numbers from aircraft carriers. There are numerous models of the A-4 in use. The A-4M and the TA-4F are currently used by Marine Corps Reserve squadrons.

Post 416 Montgomery Harriers (AV-8)

Montgomery                           Manuel Hermosillo

22,000 pounds of thrust enable the Harrier to hover like a helicopter, and then blast forward like a jet at near-supersonic speeds. Like every aircraft in the Marine fleet, this aircraft is used for multiple missions, which include attacking and destroying surface and air targets, escorting helicopters, engaging in air-to-air defense, providing reconnaissance and applying offensive and defensive support with its arsenal of missiles, bombs and an onboard 25mm cannon. Offering the versatility to conduct almost any mission, the Harrier II provides the ideal blend of firepower and mobility to effectively counter enemies engaged by our ground forces.

Post 460 University City Growlers (EA-18G)

University City HS                   Alex Borboa                DAV CH 95 Tri Cities

The EA-18G Growler is the most advanced airborne electronic attack (AEA) platform and is the only one in production today. A variant of the combat-proven F/A-18F Super Hornet, the Growler provides tactical jamming and electronic protection to U.S. military forces and allies around the world. Industry and the U.S. Navy continue to invest in advanced Growler capabilities to ensure it continues to protect all strike aircraft during high-threat missions for decades to come.

Post 552 Mission Bay Cobras (AH-1)

Mission Bay HS                       Dennis Gildehaus

The AH-1 was the backbone of the United States Army's attack helicopter fleet, but has been replaced by the AH-64 Apache in Army service. Upgraded versions continue to fly with the militaries of several other nations. The AH-1 twin-engine versions remain in service with United States Marine Corps (USMC) as the service's primary attack helicopter. Surplus AH-1 helicopters have been converted for fighting forest fires.

Post 731 Hoover Panthers (F9F)

Hoover HS                                 Bob Schuman              San Diego Padres

F9F Panther marks one of the earliest jet-powered single engine aircraft to be used exclusively from a naval aircraft carrier. Up until the F9F’s initial release in 1949, the United States Navy predominantly depended upon propeller fighter airplanes to protect the naval carrier group.

 

F9F Panther was one of the last jet fighters of that era to have guns installed. It was a predecessor of the last great American gunfighter, the F-8U Crusader. As for the F9F’s armament, it included hard points along the wing for air-to-air and air-to-surface missiles as well as four emplaced 20 mm (0.79 in) AN/M3 cannons. Each cannon had 190 rounds, giving the F9F Panther a total capacity of 760 rounds. This was devastating against both ground forces and enemy jet fighters.
