US Navy Attack Squadron 37 (VF-37) Ragin Bulls was established on July 1st, 1966, flying the A-7 Corsair II. The squadron flew the A-7 for almost 25 years, participating in numerous combat operations from Vietnam to the Perisan Gulf. The squadron finally traded its A-7s for the F/A-18C Hornet in 1990, and was redesignated Strke Fighter Squadron 37 (VFA-37). In 2007, the Ragin Bulls began swapping its F/A-18C Hornets for the two-seat F/A-18F Super Hornet and is currently transitioning its remaining F/A-18Cs to the single-seat F/A-18E Super Hornet.

Vought A-7E Corsair II

Designed as a longer-range, higher-payload replacement for the A-4 Skyhawk, the A-7 Corsair II was first flown on September 27th, 1965. This aircraft entered service during the Vietnam war and later became one of only a few US Navy aircraft to serve with the US Air Force. It possessed cutting edge technologies; it was one of the first aircraft to use a turbofan engine, an internal navigation system and a "head-up" display. Late in its career, A-7s were used for pilot training and were parked outside of hangars in order to draw the attention of Soviet spy satellites away from the fledgling F-117.
