The Lockheed P-3 Orion was originally developed during the Cold War to detect submarines and perform general naval reconnaissance. In its long service, it has proven to be a very safe and stable aircraft, with an excellent safety and survival record even on extremely long missions. Thanks to its good service record, the P-3 has been adopted by many nations worldwide, and adapted to a variety of roles. It has been used in its primary purpose during the Vietnam conflict and both Iraq conflicts, as well as other American conflicts throughout the world, including operations against Somalian pirates. The variant modeled here is the P-3C Orion, the most recent production version fitted with several technological enhancements. Exacting detail in construction and finish make this model a prime choice for any collector or enthusiast.
