Update: Excellent work guys. You got it right, it's the EA-18G Growler, replacement for the EA-6B.

It's a modified F/A-18F that packs the EW equipment where the gun used to be and on the wingtips. Whereas the EA-6B was a four-man crew, the stipulation on the EA-18G was it had to work with two just two crew members (read: lots of automation).

It's going to go through ops testing this year and should be in the fleet in 2009.


Ok, let's see how good you guys are. Here is one of the newest F-18s in the Navy. Can you name it?

I'll reveal more when you guess the correct aircraft.
