The Northrop Grumman EA-6B Prowler is a twin-engine attack aircraft based on the design of the ruggedly simple yet efficient A-6 Intruder. Considered a reliable plane in the fight against electronic warfare, the Northrop Grumman EA-6B carries anti-radiation missiles. The aircraft is usually manned by a pilot and three Electronic Countermeasures Officers but on some occasions, only two ECMOs accompany the pilot.Since the retirement of the once famed EF-11 Raven in 1998, the Northrop Grumman EA-6B became the only electronic warfare aircraft used in the US military until the introduction of the EA-18G Growler. Introduced in 1971, the Prowler is still in service today as it demonstrated excellent capability in jamming enemy systems.
