To replace their aging EA-6B Prowlers, the United States Navy acquired a specialized variant of the F/A-18 Super Hornet, the EA-18G Growler. The Growler is an advanced airborne electronic attack aircraft capable of tactical jamming and electronic protection. The Growler was first flown in August 2006 with the first production aircraft being delivered to VAQ-129 in June 2008. After operational capability testing, full production of the EA-18G Growler began in late 2009. In 2010 VAQ-132, 138 and 141 were re-equipped with the Growler.
