The beginning of "Cold War", with the gradual evolution of military technology and naval submarine, made ??it necessary to be equipped by the United States Navy aboard an aircraft able to meet the needs of long-range maritime patrol and Anti-submarine warfare (ASW).

Its internal cargo bay and underwing pylons could also ensure the transportation and use of a variety of anti-submarine weapons and anti-ship as torpedoes, naval mines and conventional bombs. The Tracker was a commercial success since it was purchased Grumman, in addition to the U.S. Navy, even by many air forces of several countries worldwide
