Grumman EA-6B Prowler

An Operational History
Author: Rick Morgan
RRP: £39.95


The Grumman EA-6B Prowler was a twin jet-engined electronic warfare aircraft developed from the airframe of the A-6 Intruder. The Prowler was in service with the US Armed Forces from 1971 until 2019. During that long career, it carried out numerous missions to jam enemy radar systems and was also used to gather intelligence on those and other enemy air defence systems.

This book provides a comprehensive review of the 48-year career of what is arguably the single-most important electronic warfare aircraft in military aviation history. It covers the aircraft's development and operations, and demonstrates why it was absolutely
fundamental to the execution of U.S. Navy and Marine combat operations from Vietnam through to the Iraq conflicts. Much new information about operations conducted by the Prowler is provided and there is input from those who flew and maintained this long-lived and successful aircraft. The book will also cover combat operations involving the Prowler and previously unreleased details on the EA-6B's remarkable career.

The author, Rick Morgan, is a retired U.S. Navy Lieutenant Commander and Naval Flight Officer. He was a Prowler ECMO and has over 2300 hours in the aircraft in his log books. After leaving the Navy, he worked for nine years on electronic warfare programs in the Pentagon and then spent 19 years with the Boeing Company, mainly on the EA-18G Growler programme. He is also the official historian for the Prowler Association and has written extensively on naval aviation history.
