US Navy receives 100th EA-18G Growler
The Growler is the only aircraft in production that provides tactical jamming and electronic protection for U.S. and allied forces. Growlers are expected to be in service until at least 2040.
The Growler plays a major role in identifying, tracking, targeting and potentially firing upon the enemy.
The U.S. Navy has 22 Growlers on its unfunded priorities list for the 2015 fiscal year budget. Current orders take Growler and Super Hornet production through the end of 2016.
