The Northrop Grumman (formerly Grumman) EA-6B Prowler is a twin-engine, four-seat, mid-wing electronic-warfare aircraft derived from the A-6 Intruder airframe. The EA-6A was the initial electronic warfare version of the A-6 used by the United States Marine Corps and United States Navy. Development on the more advanced EA-6B began in 1966. An EA-6B aircrew consisted of one pilot and three Electronic Countermeasures Officers, though it was not uncommon for only two ECMOs to be used on missions. It was capable of carrying and firing anti-radiation missiles (ARMs), such as the AGM-88 HARM.  The Prowler was in service with the U.S. Armed Forces from 1971 until 2019. It has carried out numerous missions for jamming enemy radar systems, and in gathering radio intelligence on those and other enemy air defense systems. From the 1998 retirement of the United States Air Force EF-111 Raven electronic warfare aircraft, the EA-6B was the only dedicated electronic warfare plane available for missions by the U.S. Navy, the U.S. Marine Corps, and the U.S. Air Force until the fielding of the Navy's EA-18G Growler in 2009. Following its last deployment in late 2014, the EA-6B was withdrawn from U.S. Navy service in June 2015, followed by the USMC in March 2019.

  1. Prolific "Oorah" Prowler - The Last Ride 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Jul 2022

    JC Wings has really cranked-out a winner with this die-cast model! I believe it's a first of its kind, with different component inserts that allow internal/opened panels to be installed on the model in various places. The model has a superbly applied paint scheme and graphics. The individual parts are smartly painted and include small stencils just like on the real aircraft. Both canopies are molded just like they would be on the actual Prowler aircraft and they can be positioned both opened and closed. Cockpit seats and details haven't been spared, JCW did their homework and got it right. The wings can be displayed in both the folded and extended positions. The landing gear and other associated parts on the model are held in place by small magnets. The model has all the small antennas located in various places and are made of rubber, so as not to break-off and they're straight and not bent. The model has a slight overall weathering effect applied to the paint and certain parts that would get grimed during Fleet operations on the real deal.

    I simply can't say enough good things about this model that the JCW engineers, "knocked out of the ballpark!" The only negative thing about this particular die-cast is the somewhat low production run of only 800 pieces. I believe it will sell extremely well and there may not be enough copies to completely satisfy the entire collectorate. Some folks will be left out looking in, wishing they would've bought one when it was available! I've been waiting for it for quite some time and I'm glad I purchased my copy for the collection. And Aikens always does a terrific job in getting the models packed and shipped promptly!
