The Navy Patrol Squadron (VP) 16, is based at Naval Air Station Jacksonville, FL, and flies the P-3C Orion which has a primary mission of anti-submarine warfare. Infrared, acoustic and magnetic detection devices are used to find and track submarines, and the P-3C has bombing and mining capabilities.

Lockheed P-3C Orion

Designed as a replacement for the P2V Neptune Anti-Submarine aircraft, the P-3 Orion was first flown in November, 1959. The aircraft is based on the Electra turboprop airliner, with the addition of a sensitive Magnetic Anomoly Detector, located far from airframe interference in a distinctive tail boom "stinger". An internal bomb bay can house torpedoes and even nuclear weapons while anti-ship missiles or bombs can be carried on underwing pylons. The P-3's original mission was to track Soviet submarines during the cold war, however it is now in service with numerous countries including Australia, Canada, Germany and Japan, to name but a few.
