The EA-6A Prowler is a twin-engine, mid-wing aircraft. A derivative of the A-6 Intruder, the Prowler has a larger pod at the top of the tail fin to house the electronic warfare equipment and a longer nose with a larger cockpit section with two canopies to accommodate the pilot and mission crew. The underfuselage structure was reinforced in the area of the A-frame arrester hook and landing gear for the heavier aircraft to withstand carrier landings.
The EA-6A Prowler's primary mission is to protect US or allied carrier groups and aircraft by conducting electronic warfare (jamming enemy radars, communications, and data links). Other mission profiles include carrying out electronic surveillance tasks, armed reconnaissance, and providing defense against incoming anti-ship missiles. The Prowler has the ability to passively detect enemy radar without making its own presence known.

The EA-6A Prowler was the first aircraft built from the drawing boards to fulfill the role of an electronic warfare aircraft. It was designed to complement the Navy's defenses in today's electronic warfare environment. Combining a fully integrated electronic warfare system with long range, all-weather capability, the EA-6A has the ability to intercept, analyze and effectively neutralize hostile radars. Electronic countermeasures required improvement to compete with the ever-increasing complexity of hostile radar-guided guns, missiles and aircraft.
