RAAF EA-18G Growler Rollout
July 29, 2015
On 29 July 2015, Boeing and its industry team presented the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) with its first EA-18G Growler. Australia is the first country outside the U.S. to obtain this aircraft. A derivative of the F/A-18 Super Hornet, EA-18G is the only aircraft in production providing tactical jamming and electronic protection. The Growlers enhance the RAAF’s current fleet – which includes 24 Super Hornets – and advance ‘Plan Jericho,’ an initiative to transform the RAAF into an integrated, networked force able to deliver air power in all operating environments.
