The Lockheed S-3 Viking is a United States Navy jet aircraft used to hunt and destroy enemy submarines and provide surveillance of surface shipping. The ES-3 version is fitted for electronic warfare and reconnaissance.

The S-3A Viking replaced the piston-engined Grumman S-2 Tracker and entered fleet service in 1974 . The S-3 is a carrier-based, subsonic, all-weather, long-range, multi-mission aircraft. It operates primarily with carrier battle groups in anti-submarine warfare roles. It carries automated weapon systems and is capable of extended missions with in-flight refueling .

The last production S-3A was delivered in August 1978 . The inventory includes S-3As and S-3Bs. Sixteen S-3As were converted to ES-3 Shadows for carrier-based electronic reconnaissance duties.

On May 1 , 2003 , US President George W. Bush rode in a Viking that landed on the aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln , w he then delivered his "Mission Accomplished" speech announcing the end of major combat in the 2003 invasion of Iraq .
