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.

As well as F/A-18Fs the RAAF purchased twelve EA-18G Growlers for No. 6 Squadron that had transferred its F/A-18Fs to No. 1 Squadron. The Growlers arrived between early 2017 and July 2017.
