The current primary mission of VX-1 is to conduct tests, evaluations, and investigations of antisubmarine warfare aircraft weapons systems, airborne strategic weapons system, support systems, equipment, and materials in an operational environment. The squadron also develops, reviews, and disseminates new ASW tactics and procedures for fleet use, serving as the model manager for all Air ASW tactical publications. Because of the squadron's unique position as an inter facing unit between the development of new weapon systems and their subsequent introduction into the fleet, VX-1 is considered the squadron that "does it first."

Size: 3"
In Stock: >5
Price: $7.99

The 'Evaluators' of VX-4 was established in September '52, and is the Navy's operational test and evaluation squadron located at NAS Point Mugu, CA. They fly a variety of aircraft, but mainly the F-14 and F/A-18. They have quite a history, so for other info, drop me a line and I'll see what else I can find out. VX-4 used to fly F-14's, F-4's and F-18's out of Pt. Mugu until mid 90's when VX-5 formed at China Lake. Both disbanded and reformed as VX-9 at China Lake but a Pt.Mugu det still exists of VX-9 and they have the same Bunny patch. The playboy bunny patch with VX-4 or even VX-9 patch will become quite the commodity soon. As of 01OCT04 VX-9 DET in Point Mugu CA was disestablished. This is the "small" (3-inch) version of their squadron patch and does not have velcro already attached.
