Key Points
  • The RAAF on 29 July received its first EA-18G Growler during a rollout ceremony
  • Australia is the first and only international customer for the electronic attack aircraft
Boeing rolled out the first Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Growlers on 29 July during a ceremony at the company's St Louis facility, making Australia the first country outside the US to obtain the airborne electronic attack (AEA) aircraft.

The RAAF wants the capability to maintain an edge over regional adversaries, according to Air Marshal Geoffrey Brown, the RAAF's former chief. "We will always pursue a technological edge over any regional competitor," he said during the ceremony.
