Grumman S2F/S-2 Tracker. Naval Fighters 101. Boock by Robert J. Kowalski and Tommy H. Thomason. Development, Testing, Variants, and Foreign Users. The Grumman S2F (S-2) was developed to meet a specific mission requirement, carrier-based antisubmarine warfare. It proved to be so useful and adaptable that it is still in military and civil service more than 60 years after it first flew in December 1952. Richly illustrated and personalized by Tracker pilots and crewmen anecdotes, Grumman S2F/S-2 Tracker describes its evolution from initial requirement to eventual replacement including unsuccessful Grumman proposals for improved versions. Its service in foreign militaries and adaptation to wildfire control are also summarized along with descriptions of the Carrier On-board Delivery (COD) and Airborne Early Warning (AEW) variants; 110 drawings, 374 Black-and-White photos and 14 color photos, 200 pages.
