Boeing and the U.S. Navy have
received U.S. Department of Defense approval to offer the EA-18G
Growler to Finland.
Previously only Australia had been authorized
to purchase the airborne electronic attack (AEA) aircraft.
Boeing and the Navy have offered the Growler and F/A-18 Super
Hornet in a response to query issued by the Finnish Ministry of Defense as part of their HX fighter program procurement.
strike fighter aircraft rely on Growler escort to increase
survivability during high-threat missions,” said Dan Gillian,
Boeing vice president, F/A-18 and EA-18G programs. “The
combination of the Super Hornet Block III and Growler would
provide Finland with superior technological capability
particularly suited to Finland’s HX mission requirements.”
F/A-18 variant, the Growler is the world’s most advanced AEA
platform and the only one in production today. It’s capable of disrupting, deceiving or denying a broad range of military
electronic systems including radar and communication systems.
In addition to the U.S. Navy, the Growler is flown by the Royal
Australian Air Force.
