Lockheed Starfighter S.2, 736 Squadron, RNAS Lossiemouth 1973
In the late 1960's The Admiralty became increasingly worried about the threat to the large carriers posed by the anti-ship missile capability of the USSR, especially those which were supersonic in theire attack run. To develop effective countermeasures, it was decided that a fairly small, extremely fast aircraft could be used to simulate these cruise missile attacks. The aircraft selected for this role was the Lockheed F-104G Starfighter, and a small order for 12 aircraft was placed in 1969 with deliveries commencing in 1972. 736 NAS, having been disbanded in 1972, was reformed the following year to operate the type. Typical missions would involve a climb to altitude and then a dive down to low level and a supersonic run towards the target carrier group. These mock attacks allowed NATO to develop more effective counter-measures. Needless to say, the pilots of 736 NAS especially enjoyed running in against the US Navy Carrier groups.

Grumman Bearcat FB.2 of No.807 Squadron FAA operating from HMS Theseus in 1949

The failure of Hawker to successfully develop the Hawker Sea Fury led to Grumman Bearcats being ordered and serving with the Royal Navy in the 1940s and early 1950s
