US Navy Fighter Squadron 2 (VF-2) Bounty Hunters was established on October 14th, 1972. The squadron flew the F-14 Tomcat and deployed several times on various carriers including participation in Operation Desert Storm aboard the USS Ranger. They deployed with the F-14 for the last time aboard the USS Constellation in 2003 as part of Operation Southern Watch. Upon return, VF-2 was redesignated VFA-2 and transitioned to the F/A-18F Super Hornet.

Grumman F-14D Tomcat

Designed to carry the formidable long range AIM-54 Phoenix missile, the Grumman F-14 Tomcat was first flown on December 21st, 1970. Made famous by the Hollywood film Top Gun, the F-14 replaced the F-4 Phantom II as the US Navy's primary maritime air superiority fighter. Its design includes a variable geometry wing that can sweep back for high speed supersonic intercepts and forward for improved positioning in air to air dogfights. Nicknamed "Bombcat," the F-14 spent much of its late career in an air-to-ground role, carrying the Low Altitude Navigation and Targeting Infrared for Night (LANTIRN) system.
