The elderly Prowler is being chased off by the Growler! For many years the U.S. Navy has been operating the EA-6B Prowler, but it is now beginning to be replaced by the EA-18G Growler, an electronic warfare version of the famous F/A-18 Super Hornet. The very first EA-18G rolled out in public in 2006, with an initial operational capability to be gained in 2009. A total of 57 have been ordered by the U.S. Navy, with the Growler able to perform both escort jamming and standoff jamming. Specialist equipment includes AN/ALQ-218 wideband receivers and ALQ-99 high- and low-band tactical jamming pods to form a full-spectrum electronic warfare suite.

Dragon has produced a fine new 1/144 scale kit of the EA-18G Growler, with exquisite detail integrated into the design. The form and lines of the kit accurately mimic those of the real aircraft, plus it has been expertly designed for convenient assembly. The new kit also includes a full set of markings made by Cartograf.

This electronic warfare Growler will not fly alone either. An F/A-18E Super Hornet is included in the box to act as an escort for this important aerial asset. The markings represent VFA-14 “Tophatters”, a U.S. Navy fighter attack squadron based at Naval Air Station Lemoore. VFA-14 has the distinction of being the navy’s oldest active squadron, and aircraft are distinguished by a top hat insignia on the tail as well as the tail code ‘NH’. With both an EA-18G and F/A-18 present in the box, this set is a fantastic opportunity for aircraft modelers to gain air superiority!
