Australia now has full EA-18G Growler aircraft fleet
Australia has received the last of 12 EA-18G Growler electronic warfare aircraft ordered from the United States.

Australian officials on Friday officially welcomed a full fleet of Boeing EA-18G Growler electronic attack aircraft to Royal Australian Air Force Base Amberley.

RAAF Amberley, located in the state of Queensland, now has a complement of 12 two-seat Growlers. The first two aircraft arrived in Australia in February.

"We are the only country outside the United States operating the EA-18G Growler and the full fleet arrival represents a significant leap forward in joint electronic warfare capability," Minister for Defense Marise Payne said.

"The EA-18G Growlers will work with Army and Navy to deliver a networked joint force able to maneuver and fight in the electromagnetic spectrum."..
