In order to replace their aging EA-6B Prowlers the USN acquired a specialized version of the F/A-18F Super Hornet, the EA-18G Growler. The Growler is an advanced airborne electronic attack aircraft capable of tactical jamming and electronic protection. The first EA-18G Growler flight took place in August 2006 with the first USN production aircraft being delivered to VAQ129 in June 2008. After operational capability testing full production of the EA18G Growler began in late 2009. In 2010 VAQ-132, 138 and 141 were re-equipped with the Growler. RAAF No. 6 Squadron was formed on June 15, 1917 as No. 30 (Australian Training) Squadron. On February 23, 1948 No. 6 Squadron became the new designation and was based at RAAF Amberle. 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. EA-18G 169153 arrived February 2, 2017 and designated A46-306 and later in 2017 was given a paint scheme to celebrate No. 6 Squadron’s 100th Anniversary.
