Based on the A-6 Intruder the Northrop Grumman (formerly Grumman) EA-6B Prowler primary mission is to support strike aircraft and ground forces by interrupting enemy electronics and gathering tactical intelligence. The aircraft carries 4-crew and is in service with the USN and USMC. The first USN EA-6B was retired on June 10, 2011 and the last carrier deployment by an EA-6B took place on November 14, 2014. The USN will replace the EA-6B with the Boeing EA-18G Growler. The USMC will continue using the EA-6B until 2019.

In early 1991 VAQ-141 “Shadowhawks” deployed on the USS Theodore Roosevelt in support of Operation Desert Storm. VAQ-141 was the first Carrier Air Wing Eight (CVW-8) aircraft to deliver ordnance by firing AGM-88 High Speed Anti-Radiation Missiles (HARM) on the first night. EA-6B Prowler 163527 “Eve of Destruction” was the aircraft assigned to the commanding officer of Tactical Electronic Warfare Squadron 141. The air crew were Pilot/CO Cdr Frank “Axel” Folly, ECMO 1 LCdr Rick “Flash” Morgan, ECMO 2 Lt. Steve “Psycho” Schwing, ECMO 3 Lt.. John “Gordo” Gordon.
