RAAF Growler programme boss says deliveries on track for 2017
The director of the Royal Australian Air Force's RAAF's Boeing EA-18G Growler Transition Office gave an update on the status of the electronic attack aircraft's acquisition at the RAAF Air Power Development Centre on 23 September.
Australia opted to purchase 12 newbuild EA-18Gs under Project 5349 Phase 3 in 2013 after an Air Combat Capability Transition Review. Since then, Australia's future Growler aircrew and engineering and other personnel have been training with the US Navy in the continental United States. janes
