EA-6B Prowler aircraft from Marine Corps Tactical Electronic
Warfare Squadron 4 have deployed to Incirlik Air Base, Turkey, to support
electronic attack requirements in Operation Inherent Resolve, the effort to
counter the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.
The deployment is planned to last through September, U.S.
European Command officials said.
The Prowler provides an umbrella of protection to coalition
aircraft and ground troops in the fight against ISIL by intercepting
communications as well as denying the enemy's ability to communicate, officials
“The EA-6B Prowler is a force multiplier continuing to do
what it has for the past 45 years: support warfighters flying in the air and
fighting on the ground by giving them the electronic communications dominance
to ensure a decisive win,” a Eucom statement said.
