US Navy to request additional Boeing E/A-18G Growlers
The US Navy has confirmed it wants to buy additional Boeing E/A-18G Growler aircraft. The navy, which did not immediately respond to a request for additional information, currently has five Growlers per squadron.
The US Navy is seeking to include 22 additional Growlers in its “unfunded” requirements request for fiscal year 2015.
Boeing’s Super Hornet and Growler production line in St Louis, Missouri will run out of work in the third quarter of 2016, if the company does not receive additional orders from the US government or foreign militaries. flightglobal
