The EA-6B Prowler is a twin-engine, mid-wing electronic warfare plane developed by Northrop Grumman as a modification of the basic A-6 Intruder airframe.
DevelopmentEditThe EA-6 is an Electric Jammer, or Electronic Warfare plane, which main purpose is to "Jam" planes or enemy radar. Its electronics are so powerful, a handful of them can blackout an area the size of France. It was developed from the earlier EA-6A which was a modified A-6A Intruder. On the carrier, even though the electronics systems are turned off, they emit enough energy to microwave anyone passing by it.
The Prowler is usually used in covert operations to "stealth" friendlies. It has taken part in many conflicts over the years.
