RSS

Amy Butler is at the Sea Air Space Conference. She sent in this briefing from Boeing given today:

Amy writes:

Boeing is once again putting pressure on F-35 supporters to answer claims that its own electronic warfare capabilities lag far behind those of the E/A-18G Growler. Boeing is arguing that as many as 50-100 Growlers will be needed over the Navy's requirement in order to address the emerging electronic battlefield.
