Boeing - First EA-18G Growler to US Navy

Boeing : 25 September, 2007  (Company News)
The Boeing Company yesterday delivered the first production EA-18G Growler to the U.S. Navy ahead of schedule and within budget.
'The Growler team put together a program plan that...has remained on cost and schedule, while meeting or exceeding all performance parameters. I don't get to say that very often about our programs,' said The Hon. Delores Etter, assistant secretary of the Navy for Research, Development and Acquisition, during the delivery ceremony at Boeing Integrated Defense Systems facilities in St. Louis. 'We have a great start to a total procurement of over 80 Gs, which will operate in our fleet for decades to come.'

The U.S. armed forces' newest airborne electronic attack (AEA) aircraft combines the Super Hornet's proven Airframe and mission systems with a next-generation airborne electronic attack suite. By using the Super Hornet airframe, the EA-18G program and the Navy can leverage the existing capabilities and known reliability and maintainability characteristics of the F/A-18E/F to provide an advanced AEA platform at a fraction of the cost and time of a completely new aircraft. Unlike the two aircraft already in flight test, the EA-18G Growler delivered today was entirely assembled and tested on the same production line as the existing F/A-18E/F Super Hornet.
