While the U.S. Navy Fighter Weapons School, better known as Topgun, is world-famous for its work in teaching high-end air-to-air combat skills, its fellow Airborne Electronic Attack Weapons School, known as Havoc, tends to sit in the shadows.
This elite school prepares EA-18G Growler aircrews for the rigors of modern-day air combat, following much the same mantra as Topgun.
While the traditional techniques of air-to-air and air-to-ground employment of fighter aircraft are well documented, the EA-18G's electronic attack mission remains something of a dark art.
