    Based on the A-6 Intruder the Northrop Grumman (formerly Grumman) EA-6B Prowler primary
    mission is to support strike aircraft and ground forces by interrupting enemy electronics and
    gathering tactical intelligence. The aircraft carries 4-crew and is in service with the USN and
    USMC. The first USN EA-6B was retired on June 10, 2011 and the last carrier deployment by an
    EA-6B took place on November 14, 2014. The USN will replace the EA-6B with the Boeing
    EA-18G Growler. The USMC will continue using the EA-6B until 2019.

    VMAQ-3 (Marine Tactical Electronic Warfare Squadron 3) _Moon Dogs_ is one of four such
    USMC units. Based at MCAS Cherry Point, North Carolina they conduct airborne electronic
    warfare and in late 2004 were deployed to Bagram, Afghanistan. VMAQ-3 was assigned to the
    455th Expeditionary Operations Group as part of Operation Enduring Freedom from January
    2005 until August 2005 and was awarded a Meritorious Unit Commendation. After Afghanistan
    EA-6B 160436 was re-assigned a few times before being retired to Castle Air Museum in Atwater,
    California.
