THe first Deployment of VA-152 was made on board the USS Hancock (CVA-19) in 1959. Since that time VA-152 had made three tours to the Western Pacific on the USSS Coral Sea (CVA-43), 1960 to 1961, 1961 to 1962,  and in 1963.

This tank was completed in November 1964 and in December 1964, VA-152 was assinged to Carrier Air Wing16 and began training for a Western Pacific deployment on board the USS Oriskany (CVA-34) in April 1965.
