The U.S. Navy's specialized Super Hornet.
The EA-18G Growler shares over 90% of the F/A-18E/F Super Hornet's features, including the airframe and AN/APG-79 AESA radar. Growlers are distinguished by their wing fences and aileron "tripper strips" for added stability. Two of the U.S. Navy's most celebrated electronic warfare squadrons - the "Shadowhawks" and "Yellow Jackets" -were among the first to transition to the EA-18G Growler in 2010.
