This fearsome warbird was designed to protect strike aircraft, ground forces, and naval ships by jamming enemy radar, electronic data links, and communications. Manufactured by Northrup Grumman Systems Corporation the Prowler is a twin-engine aircraft capable of carrying four crewman in a side-by-side configuration. The weapons systems on the EA-6B include an ALQ-99 on board receiver, ALQ-99 Pod Mounted jamming system, and the High-Speed Antiradiation Missile (HARM) designed to seek and destroy enemy missile radar and radar-directed anti-aircraft systems. Our EA-6B is currently on-loan from the National Naval Aviation Museum and came to us directly from AQ-134 after their deployment to the Persian Gulf was complete.
