In 1962 Russian missiles were discovered in Cuba, and President Kennedy ordered a naval blockade. The U.S. Navy responded to this imminent nuclear threat with the first deployment of the steadfast P-3 Orion submarine hunter, which was released earlier that year. This four engine long range radar tracker diligently patrolled the Caribbean for communist threats during this thirteen day national crisis, then continued to serve the U.S. for more than fifty years.
