Boeing has won a $897 million contract from the US department of defense for the procurement of 15 EA-18G Growler and associated airborne electronic attack kits.

Work is expected to be completed in January 2018, the pentagon announced Monday.

The Boeing EA-18G Growler is carrier-based electronic warfare aircraft, a specialized version of the two-seat F/A-18F Super Hornet.

The Growler has more than 90% in common with the standard Super Hornet, sharing airframe, Raytheon AN/APG-79 AESA radar and weapon systems such as the AN/AYK-22 stores management system.

The EA-18G can be fitted with up to five ALQ-99 jamming pods and will typically add two AIM-120 AMRAAM or AGM-88 HARM missiles.
