Electronic Attack Squadron (VAQ) 132 “Scorpions”


Produce combat ready aircrew, Sailors and aircraft capable of conducting electronic warfare on time and on target to fight and win our nation's wars.

About Us

The Scorpions of VAQ-132 continue to lead the way in Electronic Attack and live up to their motto: "First to the Fleet, First to the Fight!"

VAQ-132 was the first operational squadron to transition the Electronic Attack community into the new EA-18G "Growler." VAQ-132 completed the EA-18G transition in September 2009.

The EA-18G Growler aircraft we fly represents the most advanced technology in airborne Electronic Attack and stands as the Navy’s first line of defense in hostile environments. 

A variant of the F/A-18F Super Hornet Block II, the EA-18G Growler combines the capability of the combat-proven Super Hornet with the latest AEA avionics suite evolved from the Improved Capability III (ICAP III) system. The EA-18G’s vast array of sensors and weapons provides the warfighter with a lethal and survivable weapon system to counter current and emerging threats.
