Fighter Squadron Composite

.
 

The VFC designation was created in 1988 when two Fleet Composite (VC) squadrons which were dedicated adversary squadrons were redesignated to differentiate them from the remaining VC squadrons which fulfilled various miscellaneous or utility roles. In 2006 a third VFC squadron was established from what had become a permanent detachment of VFC-13. VFC squadrons provide adversary simulation for fleet squadrons. All VFC squadrons are Navy Reserve squadrons.

Two of the squadrons are based at NAS Fallon (VFC-13) and NAS Key West VFC-111) to support fleet VFA squadron training at the extensive range complexes supported by those air stations. The third is based at NAS Oceana (VFC-12) to support Strike Fighter Wing Atlantic squadron training.
