A successor to the A-6 Intruder, the EA-6 Prowler is an electronic warfare attack aircraft first flown in the 1960s. The EA-6 was the original prototype, though the more advanced EA-6B began development in 1966; the aircraft saw extensive action during the Vietnam War and Operation Desert Storm. The U.S. military, however, has slowly begun moving toward the EA-18G Growler as their primary electronic warfare aircraft, and the EA-6B has been officially retired from the U.S. Navy (though it remains in service with the USMC).
Featuring authentic markings from the VAQ-133 Wizards in 2007 Afghanistan, this 1/72 scale, Hobby Master, die cast model features an eye-catching camouflage paint scheme, engraved panel lines, a sliding canopy, a well-equipped cockpit including panel instrumentation, a removable pilot figure, realistic turbojet engines, wing-mounted weaponry (including missiles, drop tanks, and jamming pods), optional-position landing gear, and a stylish presentation stand. Measures approximately 10" long with an 8¾" wingspan.
