The 100th EA-18G Growler on display at Boeing's recent rollout ceremony.

In the suppression of enemy air defenses, the E/A-18G Growler aircraft is the first in to secure the air space, and it does so electronically. The Growler is the 'tip of the spear' for the battle, allowing warfighters to counter threats - undetected.

With targeting and jamming capabilities, as well as air-to-ground and air-to-air self-defense capability, the Growler is one of the most essential aircraft flying today and will be critical for future joint force missions.
