Description: The EA-18G is a derivative of the proven two-seat F/A-18F Super Hornet being developed by the Boeing corporation to meet the US Navy requirements for EA-6B Prowler replacement in the 2009 timeframe. The EA-18G program was valued at $8.66 billion including developmental costs (2005 estimate).
In December 2003, the US Navy awarded Boeing a $1 billion contract for EA-18G System Development and Demonstration (SDD) allowing for an initial operational capability (IOC) by 2009. Up to 90 aircraft will be procured by the US Navy to replace EA-6B Prowler fleet by 2012.
The EA-18G airborne electronic attack aircraft should be able to carry up to 5 ALQ-99, 2 AIM-120C AMRAAM air-to-air missiles, 2 AGM-88 HARM missiles, and the AN/ALQ-218(V)2 electronic warfare receiver suite.
On March 18, 2005, Northrop-Grumman announced that the first fuselage section was completed marking an important milestone for the EA-18G electronic attack aircraft program. In early 2010 the program scope increased from 85 to 114 aircraft.
