Pre-Order Expected Arrival - MAY 2023

In order to replace their aging EA-6B Prowlers the USN acquired a specialized version of the F/A-18F Super Hornet, the EA-18G Growler. The Growler is an advanced airborne electronic attack aircraft capable of tactical jamming and electronic protection. The first EA-18G Growler flight took place in August 2006 with the first USN production aircraft being delivered to VAQ129 in June 2008. After operational capability testing full production of the EA-18G Growler began in late 2009.

In 2010 VAQ-132, 138 and 141 were re-equipped with the Growler. In 2009 VAQ-138 “Yellow Jackets” began to transition to the EA-18G Growler. In 2018 the squadron flew to Nellis AFB for Red Flag 18-2 lasting from March 9th to 23rd. The VAQ-138 call sign is “Rampage”. Upon returning to their home at NAS Whidbey Island, Washington VAQ-138 was sent to Misawa Japan from May through December 2018. One of the squadron’s EA-18G Growlers was 168386 serial G72 NL-510. This aircraft joined the squadron in 2014 and was designated the CAG aircraft in 2015.
