The Boeing EA-18G Growler is an American carrier-based electronic warfare aircraft, a specialized version of the two-seat F/A-18F Super Hornet. The EA-18G replaced the Northrop Grumman EA-6B Prowlers in service with the United States Navy. The Growler's electronic warfare capability is primarily provided by Northrop Grumman. The EA-18G began production in 2007 and entered operational service with the US Navy in late 2009. Australia has also purchased twelve EA-18Gs, which entered service with the Royal Australian Air Force in 2017. Primary Role: Electronic Warfare Aircraft.

In March 2011 an uprising began in Libya against the government of Muammar al Qadhafi. To protect civilians from air strikes and heavy military retaliations the UN issued UNSCRs 1970 and UNSCR 1973 authorizing International Forces to protect the civilian population and enforce an arms embargo while maintaining a No-Fly Zone. As part of Operation Odyssey Dawn five VAQ-132 Scorpions EA-18G Growlers moved from Iraq to Aviano AB in Italy to help fulfill the UN resolutions. EA-18G growler 166894 was the CAG aircraft during OOD.
