CNO Accepts Growler

by Steve on August 7, 2006

It’s official, we’re adding yet another Hornet derivative to the fleet:

ST. LOUIS, Mo. (NNS) — Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) Adm. Mike Mullen accepted on behalf of the Navy the EA-18G Growler in a formal roll-out ceremony at The Boeing Company’s facility here Aug 3.

The Growler will replace its aging predecessor, the EA-6B Prowler, as the Navy’s air platform for electronic warfare.


The Prowler will still be around for a while as its replacement is not due to hit the fleet until 2009.
